On February 14th we posted this horsey Dove Chocolate commercial that — Valentine’s Day or not — will shatter your heart into a million beautiful, glittering pieces.
Disclaimer: The riding isn’t great in this commercial. Ordinarily we’d give ’em a hard time, but imperfection is sort of what this commercial is about.
Idiosyncrasies. Flaws. Singularities. Quirks. Perhaps not at first, but in time we come to recognize them in our partners — and we choose to love them anyway. As author Jodi Picoult put it, “You don’t love someone because they’re perfect, you love them in spite of the fact that they’re not.”
Many thanks to reader Janelle Rich for sending this one our way.
Choose a love less ordinary.
