“To love at all is to be vulnerable.”
That quote by C. S. Lewis is in his book The Four Loves. How would you fill in the blank of “To love at all is to be ______.” I think we each have our own word for different times in our lives~

Behind the Scenes of Becoming Mrs. Lewis
This is just a hint, but we have a NEW and EXCITING bonus podcast coming up with the screenwriter and producer, Todd Komarnicki (who produced ELF among many other powerful movies). His production team is developing BECOMING MRS. LEWIS for the screen. More about this soon, but my newsletter subscribers get a first listen!
All About 💗 LOVE
— Things I've Found
Book — Let’s return to the original and profound book on love: THE FOUR LOVES by C. S. Lewis.
Podcast — When it comes to love, poetry always seems to be the first thing that comes to mind (for me). The way that poetry sneaks past the guards of the heart makes me turn to it again and again. Here is one of my all-time favorite podcasts and interviews with the beloved poet, Mary Oliver.
Aesthetic — Don’t know what to send or do to show some love? I found FARMGIRL Flowers a long while ago, and they have been my go-to whenever I want to show appreciation and love. They are so creative, and their flowers divine.
Letter—Have we lost the art of love letters?. Yes, I do believe we have. And although it sounds odd to write a love letter to someone long gone, here I have done so with a love letter to Joy.
