Love, love, LOVE

Helsingissä 24. kesäkuuta 2010

Dear Kirsikka,

--It's easy to say I love you New York. It's not as easy to say I love you Mr. Big.--

Carrie got that right. I think it is still easier to tell someone you love them in english. Minä rakastan sinua. It's just purely rough.

Falling in love is easy. But staying in love? It is a lot harder.

I tend to fall in love with almost anything. You and I both my love. Shoes, food, songs, new hobby... But how easy is to toss away the shirt you used to love: super.

Friends. It's not easy to find people who you love. The ones that make you feel super special. I'm glad to hear you have found them there and sad to hear that you feel like a chunk of your heart is breaking when you need to leave them. Good thing about the friends you love is that you feel exactly the same way about them anywhere in the world and after years of not seeing each other.

Last Friday I used a tray as a drum at my friends party while she was singing. We stole that tray one time from a karaoke bar. It says "Ota poika kyytiin." Hilarious. Good things are happening to her at this very moment and I'm happy for her. My other friend from the same group is getting married, one is having her second child and one has fallen in love.

One of them cried watching Sex and the city 2's karaoke scene. And I totally get her. It reminded me of our group (and I don't care if it's the most embarrassing thing to admit). Silly little group of girls having so much fun together. I want them to know how much they mean to me but I never remember to tell them. It's not so easy to say 'I love you friend'.

There are so many people I love and I hope you all know it. If I would make a list of them right here, right now it would be like an Oscar speech where they need to start the music to get them to shut up. So I'll make it simple. If you're reading this:

I love you.

You too.

With love, E.

Ps. These photos were taken at Helsinki 10 where they held a LOVE pre-party. I love the soft, poetic feel. How about you?
