In the moment we’re born, we’re drawn to form a union with others. An abiding drive to connect, to love, to belong. In a perfect union, we find the strength we cannot find in ourselves. But the strength of the union cannot be known until it is tested. – Emily Thorne, Revenge
Growing up, I use to think that love was that perfect combination of romance, compatibility, trust, and sharing. If you found that special someone with all the right ingredients, you instantly found love. What I am finding in my own recent heartbreak, is that love is way more deep than that. There are certain ingredients that are only revealed when a little heat has been added. A Recipe for Love is a journey about spending time in the kitchen and working through the recipe to create that rare and special love.
This book is not told from the view of one person. We want it to be a collaboration project. It’s a potluck story if you will. We want to capture stories that build upon love. We want to know what love means to you. What ingredients are the most important and those you can leave out. The recipe will look different for each of us. I believe that is why love is so special. There is not a one size fits all recipe for love. Love is hard, and it takes sacrifice. However, if love is worth it, then you keep cooking, keep testing the ingredients, until you have created that one of a kind love just for you.
