Hearts Remind Me Of Love

2288-UrquhartCastle6-29-08It’s the most wonderful time of the year! I love the 5 weeks between Thanksgiving and Christmas, but I REALLY LOVE the 6 weeks between Christmas and Valentine’s Day! Hearts, hearts Everywhere! Are you feeling the love?

Whenever I see a heart – and I see them EVERYWHERE, in the simplest things – it’s like a reminder to me that God loves me. I hope it can be the same for you. Whether you believe in God or not isn’t the point. I just want you to be reminded (often!) that someone in the Universe loves you. I certainly love you!

Drew Barrymore apparently is in love with hearts almost as much as me and recently came out with a book of photos  she’s taken over the years of hearts in nature or other random places. The book is titled #finditineverything

The photo posted here is a picture I took of the clouds above Urquhart Castle in Scotland when I was there in 2008. Coincidence? nah…

Have you noticed any hearts lately that might be a personal message of love to you?

Holidays are Here!

Star of David Sugar CookieAnd don’t forgot Hannuakah – which is early this year, starting next Wed, Nov 27! I’ve created a really special Star of David sugar cookie with pale blue buttercream frosting to help celebrate the Festival of Lights.

honorable grateful heartI love, Love, LOVE Thanksgiving and all the family gathering, yummy food, and grateful lists that come with it! It’s a beautiful time of year to enjoy comfort food, take naps, and spend time with family without the (sometimes chaos!) of gift giving. Instead of wrapped presents, we give each other our hearts in the form of sharing what we’re grateful for.

This year I’m especially grateful for family and friends that support my dreams and the freedom to do what I love!  What about you??

Why do you heart your DAD?

Fathers Day 2013 wrapped 001Do you love your Dad because he taught you to ride a bike? Or let you dance on his feet? Or taught you to love fishing or camping? There are as many reasons to love your Dad as there are Dads in the world. Every Dad is different and each one shows his love a little differently, but there are a few things they all have in common. They love you – their son or daughter – as much or more than they love themselves. Some Dads have a hard time showing it (and sometimes you may think they don’t even like you at all!), but I’m quite positive that their hearts of full of love for you. If you think back I’m sure you will remember lots of little ways that Dad showed you his love. So… reflect for a minute and remind yourself why you heart your DAD.

Send Dad a little love this Father’s Day with a trio of cookies spelling out “I Heart DAD”. Only $8 each from the Sweet on Hearts Etsy Shop and arrives in a see-through box, tied with a satin ribbon and gift tag.

Mother’s Heart

Mothers Day cookies 2013 053For me, Mother’s Day isn’t just about my amazing mother, but it’s about all the people in my life with a “mother’s heart.” You know the type, a person who is quick to love and support you and help you in any way they can. Oprah Winfrey says “Biology is the least of what makes someone a mother” and I completely agree.

Think of all the people in your life that love you… Whether male or female, I bet they have in common a “mother’s heart” and show you they love you through their words and actions.  The probably teach you what they can, reach out to you with kindness, support you in your dreams, believe in what you’re trying to become, and love you unconditionally.

So this Mother’s Day I encourage you to take some time to really show your Mom and all the people in your life with a “mother’s heart” how much you love them.  Maybe it’s as simple as writing a personal note in a card. Maybe you go out to a favorite restaurant or better yet, cook a home-made meal. Maybe you surprise them with a favorite book or item they’ll really love. Or maybe, just maybe, some alone time together that doesn’t cost a thing would mean the most. Whatever you choose to do this year, let it be done with lots of heart and love.
