TODAY’S LOVE TOPIC:

Father’s Day is upon us so let’s dedicate a day to honoring those daddy and daddy figures who have made a special impact in our lives. Who is a daddy you love and admire? What constitutes the definition of a dad? More and more research has proven the importance of a father figure in a child’s life. In your opinion, why is this so valuable? Let’s show our daddies some love!

Hello, sweet lovers! Today’s love day is an extra special day for our daddies. I’ve read countless articles about the importance of a father figure in a child’s life. I subconsciously always knew this to be the case, but it’s not until we had our little Camdelicious that I have seen firsthand what this actually means. But even before Mr. ShuGar or Camden came along, there was one man who I have always loved. The original love of my life: My Daddy.

But, wait! I want more reading!

TODAY’S LOVE TOPIC:

Summer is almost here! What fun memories do you associate with summer? What do you love doing during this season? Do you have any fun summer plans? Share your summer heart with us.

Hello, sweet readers! Have I mentioned how much I love Thursdays? I love talking about love with you.

Summer is by far my favorite season. Maybe it’s because I was born in June or maybe it’s because L.A summers are the absolute best. There’s always something fun to do outside. I think now it’s one of the best seasons for me because we were married in the summer so I will forever equate this season with love.

This summer we have no huge traveling plans. However, we do have lots of social commitments with our family and friends visiting our Camden Boy, including some of Mr. ShuGar’s family. So excited to welcome them to our home and have them meet our love! My sis is also getting married this month so that’s kind of a big deal. I am so happy to celebrate my sis finding her true love. We also have some date nights planned, which I am anxiously awaiting as I feel we need more time with just the two of us. A marriage always needs nurturing.

When I think of summer, the following comes to mind:

TODAY’S LOVE TOPIC:

 Give an example in your life when you have felt/given unconditional love. What defines unconditional love for you? Is it possible to love someone with no strings attached? 

Hi loves! By now you all probably know I love love. I’ve always had since I was a wee little girl. One of the reasons why I heart love is because we are all creatures who crave this feeling. It’s something money can never buy, yet it’s the most valuable commodity on earth. Who wouldn’t be fascinated by this sentiment? One of the many intriguing aspects about love is the conditions to which we love. Is there such a thing as unconditional love?

I say yes and no.

I Miss Him

The-ShuGars-Dancing

 Mommy’s Corner is a weekly series exploring our journey in becoming parents, our love for our ShuGar baby, and general topics related to mommyhood.

Hope everyone had a restful weekend! Rest is a word not common in my vocabulary at the moment. Baby Camdie has proven to be very active these days so any type of relaxation doesn’t look possible in our near future. Nevertheless, I enjoy being up with him and watching him grow. Every day, he does something new that makes me fall in love with him a million times more.

This post is not about my baby, at least not directly. This time I am choosing to write about Mr. ShuGar and our life post-baby. I’d like to share what it has been like for our life as a married couple now that we have added a plus one to our original party of two.

Show and Tell Love

TODAY’S LOVE TOPIC:

When it comes to love, there are different ways to demonstrate your devotion. Are you more of a doer or sayer? In other words, do you prefer to show your love in your daily actions or are you someone who likes to say it as much as you can? Share examples of your love style!

I am fascinated with the science of relationships. What I find most intriguing is how two people can spend countless hours together, build a life together, and can have very different personalities and communication styles. When it comes to love, we all seem to “express” ourselves in our own style.

How do we make relationships work when we all have our unique language style? For Mr. ShuGar and I, we definitely approach expressing our love differently.

I am Mom and I am Best Enough

Today’s Love Topic:

Let’s start a monthly tradition of having a love free-for-all topic! Post anything your heart desires about love next week. The only requisite is that you share your love with the rest of us.

 As a recent mama, everything is new to me. I’ve heard my girlfriends talk about the challenges and joys of motherhood, but until you experience it yourself you really don’t understand it. One of the lessons I have learned in my five weeks as a mother is the reality that many moms are plagued with guilt and pressure to live up to the golden standard of motherhood. It’s a sort of keeping-up-with-the-Jane’s-of our-society complex. Let me use my experience with breastfeeding as an example of mama’s guilt and pressure. Keep in mind, this topic transcends beyond breastfeeding and really can be inserted into anything related to motherhood.

This post is a lesson on self-love.

TODAY’S LOVE TOPIC:

Mother’s Day is just around the corner. Let’s dedicate this post to celebrate our mothers, aunts, grandmothers, sisters, and friends who have blessed our lives as mothers and/or mother figures. You can even give this post as a virtual gift to this mom in your life.

This will be my very first Mother’s Day ever. I can’t believe I have the honor of having someone call me mom (one day when he can speak). It still seems surreal. I will dedicate another blog post about my own thoughts so far on being a mommy, but for this post I would like to celebrate the existence of my own mom, my guardian angel on Earth.  I have written an ode to my mama before. However, as a new mama, I have a fresh perspective on what constitutes the definition of mom.

TODAY’S LOVE TOPIC:

Share your favorite (or one of your favorite) love stories. In can be from any art form –  a movie, a book, a piece of art, or a story you were told. Describe it and share with us why you heart it.

Hello, loves! I am so excited about sharing today’s All You Need is Love Project. I hold this topic near to my heart since I am a major indie film nerd. It’s one of the main things Mr. ShuGar and I enjoy doing in our free time. However, Mr. ShuGar and I differ in our movie sensibilities when it comes to romantic films. He’s not a huge fan of sappy love stories, whereas I am a sucker for a classic “happily ever after” film.

I present to you my Top 5 romantic films of all time, in no particular order. These films get me all emotional every time, but they are certainly not Oscary-worthy, just tear-jerkers.

Guest Post: Fatima @ Motherhood Through My Eyes

Forgiveness is never an easy subject, but it’s a great way to move forward.

There will be times in your life when forgiveness is the last thing on your mind. And sometimes, the person you should be forgiving is yourself.

Share your favorite (or one of your favorite) loves quotes. Why does this quote resonate to you? Share your heart with us!

My dearest bloggy friend, Julie, is hosting today’s All You Need is Love Project at her blog Home is Where the Heart is. Please visit her blog to link up and meet other wonderful love bloggers!

Julie chose today’s love discussion and I just had to share my quote with you all. It’s from one of my fave poets, Pablo Neruda.

I love you without knowing how, or when, or from where. I love you simply, without problems or pride: I love you in this way because I do not know any other way of loving but this, in which there is no I or you, so intimate that your hand upon my chest is my hand, so intimate that when I fall asleep your eyes close. ~Pablo Neruda (100 Love Sonnets)

This quote says it all about love.
