Heart Felt

As I was taking a picture of this little red felt heart, it hit me.

It hit me of how blessed I am to have fallen into this wonderful world of blogging.

I am deeply, desperately and hopelessly in love with it.

I love the creative outlet that it has given me. I adore the community of bloggers who have grown into friends who are such an inspiration, so supportive and who have hearts not of red felt but gold.

I adore that I get to share a deeper part of myself with my family in a way that I’ve never been able to. I am able to weave emotions into words and take pictures of my thoughts. It is so heartwarming to hear the excitement in their voices when they read something that really resonates within their soul. It’s a totally new way for me to show my love for each and every one of them. I love you all so very much.

And I am so blessed to have all of you…

You who take the time to stop by and read what I have to say to begin with. I am so very grateful when you take the time to leave a comment. I actually feel dizzy with glee each time I read that one of you want to try something that I’ve shared.

That’s what my blog is all about.

It’s about sharing, inspiring and embracing all that life has to offer. Life’s to short not to enjoy the ride. Whether it’s through food or decorating or just stopping all the craziness to enjoy a tender moment.

And that’s what just happened to me.

This little red felt heart made me stop and enjoy the moment.

And I just had to share what my heart felt.

Thanks to all of you.

Happy Valentine’s Day with love,

    I just found you via Twitter. We have a lot in common (living in the dark ages thanks to techno-geeks we are married too not being the only thing:) and I am looking forward to getting to know you better through your blog. We started on this wonderful expedition about the same time, both prompted by our husbands:)
    Happy Valentine’s Day to you and your family!
