I don’t think of myself as being particularly sappy, but I do love when hearts pop up in unexpected places. ๐Ÿ™‚ Look what I found in the tray of our ice dispenser this morning!

Happy rocks

There is a small group of families that paints rocks and puts them around the neighborhood. The designs vary a lot but they always make me smile when I’m out for a walk.


If only a license plate could make it so! Though I’ve always believed that a positive attitude is a good place to start. ๐Ÿ™‚

Mrs & Mrs



Late wedding gifts from a friend at work.  Just a few years after the fact, but still a wonderful gesture – we love them!


I still enjoy this ‘groovy mama’ picture my youngest drew of me a few years ago.

Love is where you look.  In my case, it showed up in the shower this morning …


Smile!  My counter KNOWS youโ€™re going to have a good day.  ๐Ÿ™‚  October 2017.

I bought snacks for our Design Review meeting this week.  Smiley faces make for more smiley faces. ๐Ÿ™‚ 

My pan smiled back at me while I was making scrambled eggs this morning. ๐Ÿ™‚

Loved the singing rocks at Legoland. โ€œWe will we will ROCK you (deh deh), rock you โ€ฆโ€

In the gluten-free cookbook section at Barnes & Noble earlier this week. Someone is obviously in a personal crisis about whether to go gluten-free or make 500 Cupcakes. ๐Ÿ™‚

Love is where you look! Grafitti at Ringing Rocks in Pottstown PA. July 2014.

Love in the leftovers. You never know where it will turn up! ๐Ÿ™‚

Empty glass on date night – itโ€™s all good! Wilmette, IL. April 2014.

Faeriewigs (otherwise known as Spanish Moss) grows all over the place in Hilton Head. March 2014.

After two weeks on India, Iโ€™m anxious to get home to my two little boys. I see signs of them everywhere โ€ฆ here, tiny feet on my breakfast plate!

Love. Gentle reminders of whatโ€™s important sometimes appear in unexpected places – in this case, the banana leaf garnish of my appetizer. New Delhi, India.

Smiles. ย Sometimes they turn up in unexpected places – in this case, on a piece of brie at my hotel in Pune, India.
