The Valentine’s Project

The Valentine's Project.png

My idea for a Valentine’s Day post was to collect different interpretations on what love is from a variety of viewpoints. I wanted to show the fact that love isn’t just for those ‘in love’. I’ve asked friends, family and fellow bloggers the question:

“What does the word ‘love’ mean to you?”

The responses I have received are raw, honest, poetic at times and, perhaps most importantly, diverse. I wanted to share with you today, on Valentine’s Day, many people’s different viewpoints on the definition of love. What love means to each of these individuals may differ in wording, but beneath it all, we are all motivated by the love for the people who touch our hearts daily. I have decided to name this little collection ‘The Valentine’s Project’

I will now share with you some beautiful, varied perspectives on love…

Requesting Help With A Post!!

For my Valentine’s Day post I’m going to be writing about alternative perspectives on love. In order to do that, I’m going to have to collect some statements about my given topic from different people. So, my question to you is: ‘What does the word ‘love’ mean to you?’

By love, there is no limit! It can be:

  • Love for a hobby
  • Love for a pet
  • Family Love
  • Love between friends
  • The Love of God
  • Romantic Love
  • And literally anything else you can think of!

Make your statement whatever length you choose, and in whatever format. It can be an image with caption (please ensure this image is your own/royalty free), a picture of a handwritten statement, a tweet or just plain text. It is up to you, and get as creative as you feel. Furthermore, if you would prefer to keep your statement anonymous, then I will make sure that that is the case! Simply specify whether or not you want this anonymity. 🙂

You can make your statement in a number of ways:

  1. Filling out the contact form below!
  2. Sending me a tweet/DM on my Twitter which is @StateOfLawson (probably best for photos)
  3. Posting a photo (if you choose that method) on Instagram and tagging my handle @hannah_grace2001 or sending it via DM
  4. Sending me a link and password to a password-protected post as a comment to this post (I won’t approve the comments so it won’t be visible to anyone else!)

I will not accept any statements with obscene or profane nature. We’re trying to spread the love here! ❤

If you can, please help out, it would mean a great deal! I could also shout out to any bloggers who submit statements but do not mind anonymity if you wish!

Deadline: 13th February 2017!

Thank you always,



What I got for my 16th Birthday + Meal Highlights


As you probably know from my ‘Birthday Tag’ post three weeks ago, it was my birthday recently. On Saturday 21st January, the day after my birthday,  I celebrated my sixteenth by having a birthday meal at a local Tex-Mex with my best friends. It was a really great night, where I was surrounded by friends, food and lots of fun! ❤

I’m just going to touch on all of the wonderful gifts I was given for my 16th birthday from friends and family members, considering they were all so lovely and thoughtful! To me, pricing doesn’t really matter when it comes to gifts. As long as some thought was put into it, that’s all that matters! 😀 I am not in anyway boasting or bragging about my birthday presents, simply thanking those who gave me them and showing you guys, so maybe you can be inspired.
