Learn To Say I Love You In 32 Languages

Ah Valentines Day.. Finally I am happy you are arriving.


I will admit I was aboard the forever alone train a few years ago when it came to Valentines Day. I didn’t sulk about the fact that I was single on Valentines Day, having never had a V-day date in my life. Instead t I thrived at treating myself to chocolates and cookies while watching The Walking Dead in black and white to celebrate the day riding solo.


It was only when I met Aaron did I get swept off my feet for my first ever romantic Valentines Day. One that didn’t involve me stuffing my face with candy while in my pjs (that’s a lie).


Something that has come from this “love” stuff is that I like to learn to say I love you in every country we are in. From Hungarian to French, to German or Spanish, it’s nice to know how to show affection in another language. It all started at a food tasting our city holds that has cuisine from all over the world. A little sign by the Greek vendor said “Sagapo,” meaning I love you and from that point on began the sickening cuteness that is our relationship.
