...a 14 day observation...day 14!

happy heart day!
this observation. slash. heart treasure hunt. slash.
love experiment has been a joy!
i loved learning that so many of you out in our world notice hearts.  you really do look for love in everyday life. because i love hearts, i thought it would be adventurous to collect them from all around me.  little did i know how much more these icons of love would bring.  they.ve brought new friends from around the globe.  they.ve put mothers, children, sisters and siblings on playful trackings.  they.ve shown me wonder.  miracle. playfulness. artistry. happenstance. out of the ordinary. natural. fundamental. childlike. and simplicity.  i felt the need to have a triumphant heart for our final 14th day.  i.ve been searching.  it didn.t come.  i now know why.
every heart is triumphant.
every heart is enchanting.  every heart is perfect.
so i end our journey with the simplest of hearts, but ones that mean a lot to me because they are from my family.  who i heart!

pancake daddy switched it up and made everyone heart waffles today
i heart these
thanks honey
red velvet of course
squint when you look at this wonderful rooster i met yesterday.  just do it.
see!  tess pointed out that he posed as a heart just for me. thank you mr. rooster.
hearts can be anywhere.  everywhere.  they encircle (or enheart us) all the time.
"i love seeing hearts.
love finding them out in our everyday lives.
i love when a heart creeps up and gives you a surprise assault.
i love what they stand for...affection.  kindness.  charity.  sympathy.  courage.  spirit.  tenderness.  passion.  benevolence."

...and now i love hearts because 
i heart you guys.  thank you for playing.  happy valentines day.
