~ If you would like to share the hearts you notice, simply subscribe and submit the photo(s) along with a title, your full name, and permission to post it. If it is selected, it will be posted on this page. Although all hearts are welcomed, ones that are unique and formed naturally have a better chance of making the wall.
Cala Riggs: I went home for my mamaw’s funeral and I stepped out of the service to go to a gas station to get waters for my family and saw the heart outside.
Sacha Pommepuy: On one of my many walks of reflections I do morning and night! Lost 15 pounds.

By Estel Hilton: Look, i was just walking thinking about Lulu and I looked down and see these 2 hearts, one opposite of each other.
By Sacha Pommepuy: After a cold rainy morning biking alone on the never ending roads, it stops raining as the sun comes out… I get this feeling like “we are here and we care” then I see this on the road about 50km in of the 123km day!! Only one more day to the finish line if I do 180km tomorrow eeeeeeee!!!”
By Emily E.: I found out last year that Lola, my ten year old chihuahua has a heart murmur due to valve disease and she will probably only live a few more years. I am devastated by the news, to say she is my favorite being i have encountered on planet earth is putting it lightly. The dog changed my life. When I saw the heart and her looking up at me with that look, I started to cry. From cuteness. I don’t think cuteness has ever caused to me cry. I saw the heart as a message. I felt like she was saying “thanks, mom.” The pee heart also had special meaning because of her little imperfect heart that is slowly failing her and I have a keepsake box that I fill with meaningful things, this might be my favorite keepsake ever, but only a picture of it is going to make it into the box. Don’t worry, I have thrown out the pee pad;)

Was at a restaurant the other day with my sis and saw this elastic twisted on the floor and thought of you and your blog – Stephanie Vincelli

By Marc Trottier: Here is my awesome heart. Don’t really have a story for it… But I walked by it everyday for 2 1/2 years and I never noticed it until Leyda pointed it out… and I thought it was amazing
By Sandra Cisneros: I was walking home from my first yoga session in a long time on Sunday and my first overall interaction with being out after coming off an almost 3 wk migraine attack that had me home. I’d been feeling defeated and weak from being sick so long but I was still just happy I managed to make it through the challenging yet exhiilerating 100m power yoga session and happy to be out and walking in daylight, I looked down and there was the little red heart that made me smile.

This little foam heart literally appeared in my cappuccino (almost) as-is. It is noteworthy for two reasons: 1) the morning I made it I found myself missing my husband a lot and wondering if I wasn’t putting too much of a strain on our new marriage (just over 6 months now!) by being away from home so much whilst I manage my transatlantic move. Then I looked down and there it was! Crazy. And 2) I rarely make coffee at all anymore, mostly because it’s not so healthy but more so because it’s virtually impossible to get a decent foam out of soymilk. So the fact that I managed (for the first time) to generate a decent amount of foam AND have it show up in the shape of a heart…well, that was just a little piece of heaven =) Anyway, thought of your blog immediately. Congrats on accomplishing your 3-month mission. I know how hard it is to keep up a blog everyday but I do hope you’ll continue periodically.

By Natalie Bolton: I haven’t come across (or been aware of one) in a long time. This was at the Roxbury after a long night of work slinging drinks and serving people to help medicate their void. That one and only void is the idea that we are lacking love. So we go out to places such as this to look for that love or at least a very distant temporary substitute. We however never are without love. We are love. This came to me on the dirty dance floor as everyone cleaned up. In this moment I thought of you.
By Vanessa Meier: Todd and I were leaving town for Christmas and from the moment I arrived at LAX for our flight to Texas, I was kicking myself in the butt for forgetting to give away our produce. Not only would I be wasting wonderful organic produce, but I was sure to come home to a moldy, gross disaster. I kept imagining the fruit so moldy that it was seeping through their hanging wire basket. I didn’t obsess over the neglected fruit, but it certainly stayed on my mind while I was gone. Upon arriving home over a week later, I went to the kitchen, looked up into the fruit basket and saw this. There was no ooey-gooey moldy disaster, just some fruit showing their age and one orange with a perfect heart shaped patch of mold. I would have never noticed this before reading “Abundance of Love”, and I surely would have mentioned how dumb I was to let this fruit go to waste. But instead, I saw the heart and had to laugh. There was no reason to be so upset with myself. Yes, it would have been great if I had gifted the fruit to someone. But I didn’t and there was no need to waste any energy thinking about it while I was celebrating the holidays with Todd’s family. Lesson learned. Thanks Stefan

This past Wednesday, my wonderful dog, Halley, passed away – she was 14 years old, and had been with our family for the past 12 1/2years. The day after she died, when I was leaving the driveway, I saw her paw prints that were still left all over the snow in our yard, and it made me cry again because I miss her so much! When I got back home, I got my camera to take pictures of her pawprints before the snow melted – especially the path she made traveling back and forth between our house and our next-door-neighbors – she went “trick or treating” there regularly! When I downloaded the pictures on my computer, I found this one – a close-up of her “path”, and there is an exposed area of a rock, in a heart shape! She was the best dog in the world, she loved our family for so many years – we’re really going to miss her – seeing this “heart” was another gift! Love, of course! Submitted by: Alison Curtin

This heart appeared while dining at a Japanese restaurant here in LA with my very dear Ed who I will always hold very close to my heart. I remember being completely awestruck by it. In being introduced to this blog, I now believe that this was a sign of the love we felt for each other. Our love was safe, accepting and kind but not that of a soul mate or the passionate kind. I believe in them. Always have. I desire that. I hurt Ed and sometimes it still hurts me to think about him. I did my best. And now I can only move forward and continue to open my heart to attracting my true soul mate. After all, Ed eventually found his and that makes me extremely happy. Submitted by: Nikki Kaplan
