Why do you love what you love?

We all love different things for different yet totally valid reasons. What's yours? It can be a hobby, a show, a thing, an animal, a food, anything. Let's bring on the love fest.
  1. Origami
    Because the challenge of bringing life to a simple piece of paper is one of the more satisfying things I have done in my life.
  2. Parrots
    Second only to dogs in my love-o-meter. They are spectacular, funny, and require a while lotta love.
  3. Pizza
    Who needs a reason to love pizza?
  4. Reading
    Because it's the best way to travel.
  5. Traveling
    Because I love exploring new places, challenging myself, and getting some perspective
