Heart Songs





I spent most of last week with The Little Men & Co.  Have I mentioned how I adore these little peeps??  ;)  Amanda and I found these fun Valentine wreaths at Hobby Lobby while I was there.  They make me smile.


Other things that make me smile... snuggle time with Roo while we were in the pick-up line waiting on Alex to get out of school. 




And, the sweet treasures that were bestowed on me... Heart songs...

"You give but little when you give of your possessions.  It is when you give of yourself that you truly give."  ~ Kahlil Gibran

I so deeply appreciate the pieces of themselves they give through their creativity and love.  I am blessed beyond measure. 


The Big Easy II crossed the finish line Saturday evening and was blocked on Sunday!  HAPPY to have a replica of my old favorite.  ;)

I hope each of you have a wonderful week... and find a place to give of yourselves... I'm on the lookout for my spot, too.

Awww such a sweet pic of you and Roo. I know you enjoyed your visit with all of them. :) So adorable that they show they love your by giving you gifts that they made. No greater gifts than heart gifts. They are so creative, just like you. :)

I love, love, love your shawl. It's so warm and cozy looking. Just in time, too for all the crazy weather.

Blessings to you always sweet friend. ((hugs)).

I know you love your time with the little guys (who have gotten so big now). Love the heart wreaths and their sweet gifts of love. Of course, your knitwork is always beautiful ... the shawl is just gorgeous. Wishing you a wonderful rest of the week.

I thought I had added you back to my sidebar so I'd see when you post, but I guess not. I'll do that now. I'm so happy you're posting again! Your shawl is just beautiful, and the colors are my fav browns and tans and cream. So classy. I'm on IG as pammy__sue8 (two underlines). Have a happy week!

Linda is right, you do look like Meryl Streep! And that's pure joy I see on your face as you hug your grandson. Also on the post where you're pictured hugging your "baby" on the motorcycle--I feel the same way about my "babies."
