love is everywhere v.02

It is Love Thursday over at Shutter Sisters again. They have given me the impetus to go public on a little something that I have been quietly documenting for awhile now.

Love is Everywhere.

It started with the collecting of heart shaped rocks at the beach (thank you for this Beth). I decided to document some of them. Then it seemed hearts started to appear everywhere. The only rule I have set for myself is that they have to be naturally occurring and/or accidental to count. Once I began to reveal my little "project" out loud, my closest friends started showing up with them or pointing them out to me as well (potato chips, spilled coffee on the counter top, leftover bacon on a plate...).

This is actually a quite odd project if you know me. I have long felt that manmade heart-shaped objects were too sweet/predictable/cloying even. But once I gave this a name it slowly became more and more of a gentle reminder to me. A kind of nudge from the universe reminding me to breathe, that everything will be ok, to remember to pay attention to the little things. Even the bin of tomatoes at the supermarket :)

So, I say happy all-the-little-things-love-thursday (and friday, and saturday and...every day) to you.

This is just wonderful. Gave me a chill and a smile. I see love everywhere too (especially rocks on the beach, but many other places too!). Now you're inspiring me to start documenting it too. Thank you so much for sharing this.
