What makes you feel loved?

When my husband randomly gives me a hug, I still get butterflies. 

What is your favorite way to show or express love?

Being present with the ones I love and telling them how much I love them. Also baking cookies, I'm really good at surprising people with my famous chocolate chip cookies! 

What is your favorite form of self care and self love?

A long, uninterrupted shower or bath. Especially before bed. 

What is something that has surprised you about love?

A few years ago I took a quiz to see what "love language" I was and I was so fascinated to see the different types there are. It rang so true with some of the people in my life and also helped me understand them more.
