Love At First Sight


Label me jaded, call me a fool, but I've always thought of love at first sight as something better left to the poets and dreamers.  Real love, true love, the sticking around forever kind of love takes time to develop.  Requires time to grow.  Needs to weather life's ups and downs to prove it's truth.

Then, ten years ago I feasted my eyes upon this beautiful sight.


Love at first sight and I've been head over heels ever since.  Happy birthday to my boy!

  1. I agree with you. I never believed in love at first sight until I met my daughter. I remember while I was pregnant saying that I did not want to see her until they cleaned all the 'gunk' off of her. Then I actually had her and I wanted to hold her immediately 'gunk' and all. Now that's love.

  2. Aww, it was love at first sight when I saw my two boys for the first time too. I never thought I could love another person as much as I love them. Happy birthday to your son. I am passing by from Blog Frog and leaving my footprints on your page. I would love to add you to my followers.

  3. Awwww, happy birthday to your son, though it's late!!! Happy un-birthday (as my blog post today would say :D).

    I loved my kids at first sight too... and my puppy... and while my husband and I met in 7th grade, that was pretty much ooh-he's-the-cutest-nicest-guy-I've-ever-met-at-first-sight. I had to wait 12 years to start dating him, but that was all it took :D
