One of the things that never fails to make me smile are the love messages that you come across in Rome. Spray painted across roads and sidewalks, you’ll find declarations like this one:
Defacement of public property aside- I think they’re touching. There is something very brave about professing your feelings to the person you love, and to the world.
But my favorite message is this one:
It reads: Life is too short not to be happy… together!!!
Valentine’s Day seemed like the perfect time to finally go up and take a picture of this graffitied reminder. As I set out, the sun was shining, children were running about the piazza with total abandon while old men whistled to themselves.
It was one of those days. One of those absolutely lovely days that reminds you how lucky you are to be living the life you are living, and makes you agree that life really is too short.
So may you spend your day happy, and together.
