Weekly Photo Challenge: Love

Love is …………..

Love is giving her a red rose.

When I was a young adult during the mid 1970’s and early 1980’s, the comic strip, Love is….. by New Zealand cartoonist Kim Casali (Nee Grove) was very popular. These cartoons originated from a series of love notes that Kim drew for her future husband. To me these cartoons symbolized love and to this day I have this cup bought and given to me  in 1974 on a trip to the Netherlands.

Corny I know, but very real to a 20 something in the 1970’s
