A beautiful March 8 from us (Laura and me) to you

We know that laugh and cry at the same time,
to us that we always put our heart even in small things,
to us who are moved by listening to the notes of a song,
to us that we put into play and then there always up again,
to us who thought that the heart would burst with happiness,
to us that we still thrill and excite us,
to us that we know is deep and light at the same time,
to us that we always give a smile even when “inside” it rains,
us to pursue our dreams,
if we believe in love …

Because

“To make the journey and not fall deeply in love, well, is not living. But you have groped because, if you have not tried, you’ve ever experienced.”
Monologue on love from the movie Meet Joe Black.

To celebrate International Women’s Day, a tart with pineapple and strawberries and all the love in the world!
