I heArt Fridays... Shampoo and Tropic Brown Granite

This little gem greeted me the other day. 
OCD exists in our home and this negative space heart created by shampoo appeared on my granite counter top.

I heArt Fridays - Matterhorn Love

As Dante and I were walking through Disneyland the other day - HE pointed out the heart in the middle of the Matterhorn...

I do believe my work is done here.

Have a great weekend and Happy Mother's Day!

Fifteen Years of Dante...

 This was Dante's first birthday in California - his 4th. 
We celebrated at Goofy's kitchen in Downtown Disney.

Fast forward 11 years later. 
He is taller than me (of course that is not very hard to achieve). 
He still loves superheros, Disney and cake!

Happy Birthday Dante!

I heArt Friday - for the Love of Onion Rings

We have a new favorite burger place right around the corner.  
It is locally owned and their burgers are delicious. They have a 1/2 and 1/2 menu item and we get the fries and rings combo. Dante asks for cheeseburgers from Grinderz at least once a week. 
I found this special little negative space heart in one of the orders.

Have a great weekend!

It brings me so much joy to be able to type this number as it means that I have had another year with my kids and my friends.
Another year of creating art,
collecting sea glass,
walking around Balboa Island,
going to flea markets,
taking photos of hearts and flowers,
doing things that I love,
being happy
being grateful
for another year.

I heArt Fridays...I love Hearts

I love love. 
I love hearts. 
Not just this time of year, but all of the time. 
My eyes are always ready to find hearts. 
Some days they are elusive and then other days... 
I hit the jackpot.
A few weeks ago at the beach was a jackpot day.

I see 3 hearts in this photo...

Do you see them?

Wishing everyone a happy Friday the 13th and a weekend full of love.

I heArt Fridays - Watermark

We have had quite a bit of rain lately... 
we desperately need it.   
I love after it rains looking for random hearts in the remains of the rain.

This one was even more interesting with the little patch of weeds right in the center.

Enjoy your weekend!

This guy was trying to hide from me but I saw him anyway!

This first week of January seemed to be a long week for so many people.

Enjoy the weekend and keep looking for hearts.

I heArt Fridays... Start Small

 Happy New Year! I am not sorry to say good bye to 2014. 
It was a VERY challenging year.

I start to think of all of the changes that I want to make in 2015 but then anxiety starts to set in... 

Everyone is choosing their word for 2015. I honestly don't even remember my word for 2014. 
Life did not go as planned last year... 
I guess another lesson about control... right?

The other day, I wrote in my journal all of the changes that I would like to make and all of the accomplishments that I would like to achieve in 2015.

Yesterday, I started a new canvas and painted all of the words as the first layer of the painting. I have not decided if I will paint a bit each day on that one painting for the whole year (I thought it would be a good way for me to paint more.. even if it is one color or splash of paint.)

But as I was going through the process and reading more posts about everyone's word and feeling the pressure of ... 
"my word" 
and the anxiety of all I want to achieve... 

it came to me...

Start Small...

start making small changes...

each day...

paint more...
eat more foods with iron...
drink more water....
meet with friends...
sell my artwork..
simplify stuff...

My goal is to start making small changes each day and keep building. 
Trying not to be too hard on myself if I don't achieve every single item on my list.

And with that in mind... I am posting my first heart of 2015... 
a sparkly blue heart..

start small.
