These always help remind me what’s at the core of what we romance writers try to convey.

And some of them are just plain funny. 

‘Love is when a girl puts on perfume and a boy puts on shaving cologne and they go out and smell each other.’
Karl – age 5

‘Love is when you go out to eat and give somebody most of your French fries without making them give you any of theirs.’
 Chrissy – age 6

‘Love is what makes you smile when you’re tired.’
Terri – age 4

‘Love is when my mommy makes coffee for my daddy and she takes a sip before giving it to him, to make sure the taste is OK.’
Danny – age 7

‘Love is what’s in the room with you at Christmas if you stop opening presents and listen.’
 Bobby – age 7

 ‘Love is when you tell a guy you like his shirt, then  he wears it everyday.’ (Awww!)
 Noelle – age 7 

‘Love is when Mommy gives Daddy the best piece of chicken.’
Elaine-age 5

‘Love is when your puppy licks your face even after you left him alone all day’
Mary Ann – age 4 

‘I know my older sister loves me because she gives me all her old clothes and has to go out and buy new ones.’
Lauren – age 4

‘When you love somebody, your eyelashes go up and down and little stars come out of you.’ (a romance writer in the making there :)) 
Karen – age 7

 And my personal favorite:

 ‘When someone loves you, the way they say your name is  different. You just know that your name is safe in their mouth.’
 Billy – age 4

Hope you’re having a love-filled weekend.
