Pinteresting Things : Love Is...

pinned here via source

Since it's Valentine's Day today, I thought it'd be appropriate to share some images related to love and romance from my Dynamic Duos & Romantic Pairs board on Pinterest. For the record, I'm not big on how commercialized Valentine's Day has become but I do believe that love in all it's forms should be celebrated. Doing things for the ones you love and appreciating them every day is just more meaningful than buying them a present on a day when you're "supposed to" in my book. What do you all think?

Paul Newman and Joanne Woodward were married for 50 years until his passing in 2008.
are one of Hollywood's greatest love stories and there is so much truth in her quote!

Another great Hollywood love story would have to be Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton. 
This is such an amazing photo of them.

Emma Stone and Andrew Garfield are a modern Hollywood love story.
They both seem so down to earth and are very cute together.

These are wonderful & what real love & valentine's day should be about. Not cheesy cards or flowers or chocolates or even worrying if you'll get's about knowing someone out there cares for you and that you love yourself too!! Beautiful xx

completely agree with your sentiments on Valentine's Day. I do adore how much love I see today but dislike the commercialization of the holiday. BUT...I guess that's true of most of the holidays nowadays. I think that's why I love Thanksgiving. haha...just pure family/food (though even that holiday has given way to people ditching their family/food for waiting in lines for sales). hah. Anyway...HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY!

Beautiful photographs. As for the celebration - I don't celebrate the day either. Just like you I believe that love doesn't need to be celebrated like Christmas and then be forgotten about for the other 364 days... It's an everyday thing, it's either there or not and no amount of cards, gifts or chocolate will fix the void.
I think Valentine's day is perfect for people who want to confess their love to somebody special. It's a great day for teens because it's just so exciting to receive a card from a secret admirer (and the more the better ;) ) But when you are married and happy, you have Valentine's day every day.
Anyway... I did make brownies tonight. And this is as far as I went, celebration-wise. :D Then I went and watched Calvin Klein live stream while Mr played on his iPad. And it was perfect.

shopgirl said...

i totally agree with you sweetie! i now view valentine's day more than just the "romantic love" but the love that we give and receive as human beings. although, i still do enjoy these sweet pics - especially the one of paul and joanne. they are definitely to be admired for their great love.

I celebrate love everyday, I don't do it this day in particular, that's why I do like the commercialized part of it, because I never get gifts, not even for my b-day, so a little gift exchange doesn't hurt anyone ;D

I agree that something done when it's not expected is so much nicer than something done when you are "supposed to". The penguins are so sweet!

I will give the show a second shot, probably the same episode. I haven't really found any other good comedies lately and I would love to. I hope you are having a great weekend!

Loved these photos of the couples, Rowena ... and it's so cute that you included the penguins. i just heard something on tv about them on Valentine's week about how they mate for life and both of them take care of the young, taking turns staying with the nest while the other goes out for food, etc. Love it. Thanks for stopping by this week, sweets .. hope your weekend has been relaxing and fun! xo ~S
