“Look! There’s a heart onto it!” I said as I plopped down next to him. He glanced at the screen on the back of my camera for a few seconds, and then leaned back looking at me. His puzzled face told me that he might think I was slightly off my rocker. The slight smirk developing said that he wondered if perhaps traipsing out into the snow had somehow affected my eye sight. I’ll make a believer of him, yet! I thought to myself as I bounced down the hallway to the office eager to upload my image.

As we stood in the kitchen this morning, this little gem caught my eye out the window. Sitting straight off our patio, was a heart! (Put there by God to bless me, I’m sure of it!) As I sat editing this image this afternoon, I came to the conclusion that perhaps what my hubby didn’t understand was the famous quote I used: “There’s a heart onto it!” accompanied by the equally famous linguistics– a true signature line of my Auntie Becca. My Auntie Becca is ever on the lookout for a naturally occurring heart, or any item in the shape of or adorned with a heart. She is a gift-er of all things hearts. (INCLUDING some very risque unmentionables that I received at my bridal shower…;)) As I was filled with memories of my Auntie today, I smiled. And realized that this heart was put there by God to do just that. I’m sure of it!

Smiles From the Heart:

Memories of my Auntie. I pretty much got the best deal ever in the Auntie dept! They all rock! I know that my life has somehow been shaped by each and every one of them. <3

Family giggles around the dinner table. I LIVE for those daily moments.

A friend who’s family was in crisis, coming through it in one piece. And I believe she will be made stronger because of it. <3 you lady!

Excitement over my baby brother taking his girlfriend to his first formal dance! I can’t wait to hear all about it and see LOADS of pictures. (That’s a request and a demand rolled into one.)

My baby girl, worried that she can’t start preK because “I don’t know how to write my words yet.” It was such a sweetly sad moment. As soon as I told her that she will be learning how to do that at school she was excited!
