Feeling like home to each other, a safe place to rest your head. Feeling seen and known, in all your weirdness. When it comes to how far can I go for love, well, all the way to the moon and back, and back again. When I love someone it is unconditional love, I feel that is the way it was meant to be since the beginning of time.

This came a day later to the judge’s ruling which stated that Britney Spears’ father Jamie would be a co-conservator in the agreement along with the Bessemer Trust. The note shared by Timberlake reads, “I’ve seen the messages, tags, comments, and concerns and I want to respond. I am deeply sorry for the times in my life where my actions contributed to the problem, where I spoke out of turn, or did not speak up for what was right. I understand that I fell short in these moments and in many others and benefited from a system that condones misogyny and racism.” Justin further wrote, “I specifically want to apologise to Britney Spears and Janet Jackson both individually, because I care for and respect these women and I know I failed. I also feel compelled to respond, in part, because everyone involved deserves better.” ISTOCK HOCOLATES, flowers, candle-light dinner...Valentine’s Day celebrates love in all its hues.
