How you know you’ve found the love you deserve.

I’m sure we’ve all had our ups and downs when it comes to relationships. But how do you know if he or she is the one?

In honor of the upcoming holiday, Valentine’s Day, here’s how I know.

Shoutout to my man for treating me like a queen.

Not everybody’s love story will be the same. If they were, this would be a boring world. It would be a world without Taylor Swift songs, a world without RomCom movies. It would be a world in which all blog posts like this one are alike.

When you’ve met your love, you will know. It will feel different. A good different. And however your story unfolds, it will be the best love story there is. xoxo.
