Go team!

"Love is rooting together for your team." – Peanuts/Charles Schulz

Every now and again I take out a worn-out 1979 copy of Love is… Walking Hand-in-Hand, a book that I must have borrowed from and, um, forgotten to return to my childhood friend (sorry, Darinca) as I found her name scrawled in the front of it.

In honor of the NFL playoffs… and in celebration of the ways that couples often come together to spend football Sundays or other sports events together, I thought you might enjoy this picture. Though I was never particularly good at sports, I have usually been up to learning about and enjoying them with a significant other or a really good friend. I think there’s something nice about learning to see through your partner’s or friend’s eyes what he or she enjoys, and why. It’s these little things that, when you add them together, are part of what becomes a long relationship.
