Love is...

Do you remember these little cartoons created by Kim Casali from the 1970s? I used to have whole collection of these. I found this one and a few others glued inside the cover and pages of an old diary from junior high.I thought about them today and looked around on the internet to see if I could find some more. They were so cute!

I've been working on a paper for my YA lit class: a flashback to my teen years. We are supposed to try to remember what it was like being a teen and write about it. After reading a few of my diaries, I think I was the typical teen girl who had her head in the clouds half the time and was a bit lonely.My diaries sound an awful lot like my daughter Audra. Who knew?

I have a "Love Is..." collection too.
James never liked their nakedness and I never paid much attention. Guess I was too busy noticing the expressions on their faces.

I liked to read the "Love is..." collection too.
I read some of an old diary of mine the other day. Some of it is hysterical to read, but most of it is about boys, and is pretty ridiculous. I like it when I read things I wrote about Jim, Dave, and Bethany when they were little.

Will you be sharing, Rachel?

I saw your blog and wanted to say I am also a Love is collector and I would love to share and exvhange panels. I am mainly looking for scans of the early years. 1970's 80's, 90's and 2000. I have a few of the early years but most of them are in not very good condition.

You can contact me here or look our group up in Facebook. Drop me a line :)
