    “As long as I live, I’ll hear waterfalls and birds and winds sing. I’ll interpret the rocks, learn the language of flood, storm, and the avalanche. I’ll acquaint myself with the glaciers and wild gardens, and get as near the heart of the world as I can.”

    “Friendship is born at that moment when one person says to another, ‘What!  You too?  I thought I was the only one.’ ” CS Lewis

      This is so much after my own heart, Sue…looking to nature to find decorations. Your natural hearts are beautiful and all of the quotes echo with my own sentiments. This was the PERFECT Valentine’s Day post!!!
      So sorry I’m visiting late. I truly don’t know what happens to time in my house anymore. I’m busy each day, but at day’s end, there’s still so much I haven’t got around to doing. Does that happen in your home?
