love. love. love.

Jamieson Van Loan

I hope you all had a wonderful Valentine's week. I hope it was shared with people who love you. Unconditionally. 

If you want to share love outside of your life, I urge you to volunteer for a charity. The most precious commodity we have is our time and to spend it giving back to your community and to strangers is beautiful. I try to spend every Monday and Friday at The Open Door Shelter in Norwalk. I help prepare and serve lunch there. It is my happy place. It helps refine my purpose. 

I realize we are all extremely busy with beautiful lives. Who has "extra" time? But if you had all the time in the world, what would you do it? Contribution to your community, especially the less fortunate, should be on that list. Start sharing your love. 

I hope you all have fun plans this weekend. If you have Monday off, enjoy it! Maikana is open. Please see your menu below or click here. Don't forget you always get 5% off if you places your orders today. Promo code: FRIDAY5. 

Sending LOVE your way,

Love the one you're with.

A male friend of mine asked me yesterday, "How do I know if I'm the love of her life?" My question back to him was, "Does it really matter?" We briefly discussed our rationales behind our stances, but the whole time the song "Love the One You're With" by Crosby, Stills & Nash kept playing in my head. 

When we are given the gift of love by anyone- whether it be innately like with our children or by our family (most of the time) or it truly falls into our lives like with our partners and great friends- love is a gift! Accept it and treat it as such. Do not question the ins and outs of it. Do not analyze it and wonder how deep or true it is. Just be grateful. With that love comes trust, acceptance, loyalty- all of these are a wonderful gift. So if you are lucky enough to have love in your life, even on the Hallmark holiday of Valentine's Day- celebrate! It speaks volumes of who you are. 

Happy Friday everyone! Have a wonderful long weekend! Maikana Foods will see you on Tuesday.
