Amo, Amas, Amat

I remember in high school Latin class, the verb “to love” was the first verb that we learned to conjugate as we struggled to master those tricky declensions. In fact, I’m pretty sure that in every class for every language I’ve taken (Spanish, Latin, French), the verb “to love” was always in the top 5 “verbs to learn first”.  “To love” is an easy one. Everyone knows what it means. Every foreign language teacher that I have had would inevitably start a class conversation surrounding our favorite things and we’d spend the class rattling off sayings like “j’taime croissant avec chocolat”. So here is a bit of a ode to the unromantic side of love; to the things that make me smile and keep me going the whole year round.
