The view around our house has been filled with lots of cut out hearts and glitter decorating for this fun holiday.  I love having the kids art work up around the house.  For me, nothing feels more like home than having art on my walls created by the people who live here.

On this day that’s all about love and kindness (or girly, mushy stuff as my boys say) I wanted to take the time to say THANK YOU! Thank you for all the love that has been shown here on my blog.  After more than a year of kicking around the idea of a personal site, a place I could share my love of all things photography, cooking and creativity, I never dreamt I would be having so much fun.  The past 6 weeks have been an amazing ride.  From the emails offering support, encouragement and direction to sharing my link on your own sites, facebook and twitter. I’m overwhelmed.  The internet is a huge, sometimes unkind place and putting yourself out there can be scary.  I am so grateful for the kindness you all have shown me as I’ve started this new blogging adventure.  In return I hope to continue to make this a place worth coming back to again and again.

(end of girly, mushy stuff…)

It also seemed like a good day to share a few sites that I love…

    I’m so honored. Thank you. Hope you have a wonderful Valentine’s Day. Oh and can you tell me, where did you get the wooden tool box (first photo) and the paper clips on your boy’s doors. I love both…

      Bentley, I found the clothes pins at Micheal’s (a craft store) and the tool box was a kit my son and his grandpa built together. I have seen them at craft stores as well. Hope you had a good Valentine’s Day too. The flowers you posted are gorgeous!
