Magical Places to Be in Love

Some places are objectively beautiful. They take our breath away, and then return it to us full of light and hope. Yet magical places are everywhere, even in the “bad parts of town.” Why? Because we carry the real magic, the ability to love, within us. So in the end, it’s not really the magical places that make us fall in love, but our love that makes them magical.

Happy Valentine’s Day!

    So beautiful Mitch. A collection of stunning places on this planet. I was amazed at how many I had been to and felt that gratitude was in order. I love your quotes too. John Keats seems to come out
    as favourite.

  6. 17 mile drive was an excellent choice for a marriage proposal. The central California coast is one of my favorite places in the entire world. Avila Beach (directly west of San Luis Obispo) is one our favorite places to go RV camp on the beach. : )

    Happy Valentine’s Day Mitch (a day late). I loved looking at all these places. I am surprised at how many my husband and I had visited considering we had only ever been in Canada and the US. Great, loving memories.

    We used to live very close to the hot air balloons in AZ — we saw them most every morning. I never grew tired of them. 🙂
