tunes : love songs.

hello, friends!

i hope you're enjoying the holiday with the ones you love most!

this year my valentines are the pre-schoolers, toby, and my human development class. (i've got finals tonight!)
but i'm happy to have friends, family, and weston to share my love with on all the other days of the year.  ;)

tonight, whether you're preparing a sweet dinner for two, trying to get home during rush hour, or sulking with a box of heart shaped chocolates and a stack of homework... i recommend listening to this lovely playlist from kylee, the adorable blogger behind 'little girl in a big world.' she's here today with a few of her favorite love songs in honor of the holiday and i'm so excited to share her tunes with you!
(her playlists are my favorite. i bet they'll be yours too.)

    Happy Valentine's Day, Kelle! :)

    1. i love those! some of my favorites made their way onto your list and lots of amazing artists. so glad you shared with us! hope you had a lovely valentines day, katrina! :)

  4. thanks for letting me post kelle! hope your finals went well!

    1. thank you again kylee! listened to your playlist over and over yesterday!

  5. Love, what a weird stuff it is! whenever you think you have it under control, it blows up from the most unexpected direction and paf! there you are back on your knees again. Probably we would be only half alive without all the pain and the joy it brings... Anyway, here's my super-short list

    PS: As a reparation for such a short list, I leave you this 400 years old sonnet by Lope de Vega (this guy used to breakfast two Shakespeares and a coffe all the mornings...) which is the best definition of love I've found so far (the translation sucks... sorry)

    SONNET 126 (translated by Boyd Nielson)
    To faint, to dare, to rage
    be brutal, tender, generous, equivocal
    buoyant, mortal, defunct, alive
    faithful, traitorous, cowardly and brave:
    To find outside of goodness no peace or respite,
    appear ecstatic, melancholy, modest, haughty
    irate, courageous, on the run,
    satisfied, offended, suspicious:
    To turn your face away from plain disillusion,
    drink poison that is smooth liquor,
    overlook profit, love pain:
    believe that heaven is inside hell,
    give life and soul for disillusion,
    this is love, whoever has tasted knows.

    SONETO 126
    Desmayarse, atreverse, estar furioso,
    áspero, tierno, liberal, esquivo,
    alentado, mortal, difunto, vivo,
    leal, traidor, cobarde y animoso:
    No hallar fuera del bien centro y reposo,
    mostrarse alegre, triste, humilde, altivo,
    enojado, valiente, fugitivo,
    satisfecho, ofendido, receloso:
    Huir el rostro al claro desengaño,
    beber veneno por licor suave,
    olvidar el provecho, amar el daño:
    Creer que un cielo en un infierno cabe,
    dar la vida y el alma a un desengaño;
    esto es amor, quien lo probó lo sabe.
