What love looked like today...

Today, love looked colorful when I saw a red cardinal sitting in the green bushes. He had the  orangest beak and such bright red feathers. He made himself known and then flew off the minute I felt the message he was sent to bring. Love. Today, love looked like 3 crispy tacos I ate on a lunch date with my mom.
