For My Friends...

February brings thoughts of hearts and love. It reminds us to make a special effort to share our love with family and friends. I realized I haven't taken the time lately to tell you how much I appreciate you stopping by to visit me and listen to my ramblings. I know life is busy and I'm humbled and thrilled each time you take a moment to leave a comment. Your words encourage and inspire me. They often make me smile or laugh out loud. I'm grateful that we can share our thoughts, dreams, and just everyday life with each other.  I wish I could have you all over for lunch. Wouldn't we have the best time? We'd be talking and sharing pictures of family and love ones. I'm sure there would be lots of pictures of children and grandchildren. My home would be filled with friends and laughter!
From the bottom of my heart,
thank you for being a part of my life!

Let us be grateful to people who make us happy,
they are the charming gardeners who make our souls blossom.
~ Marcel Proust


  1. Beautiful post! I have often thought how nice it would be to get together for a nice lunch with my online friends. What a wonderful idea... :)

    1. I got so caught up in thinking about lunch that I forgot to mention how gorgeous these photos are! (LOL) I love seeing hearts everywhere at this time of year.

  2. What a fun lunch that would be, Cathy! I also feel so grateful for my blogger friends, who inspire and support me. I love your heart shots, especially the dandelions.

  3. Thank you, Cathy! Thank you for putting this lovely piece of you out here to bring some sunshine and happiness to me! I do enjoy reading about your exploits! I do enjoy seeing your beautiful pictures!

    Yes, lunch would be so much fun!


  4. That would be fun Cathy - funny I was doing the same thing with dried roses!

  5. What a lovely post! It would be such fun to get together with our blogging friends and just get to know each other.

  6. Cathy - what a wonderfully illustrated thank you. Love the dandelions in the heart-shaped cookie cutters - such a creative idea. And yes, lunch would be wonderful, especially if you plan to serve those chocolate hearts. :) It is always a pleasure to come here.

  7. I would love to get together for lunch. That would be so much fun. I thoroughly enjoy your thoughts and ramblings :) Happy to have found your blog!

  8. A great Valentine Day post! Love that creative photo of the cookie cutters and dandelions!

  9. How very sweet! Lunch would be absolutely divine and I wonder if we'd all talk rather than eat!!!

    I love visiting your blog and seeing your images, reading your story.

  10. I like your heart-shaped moulds filled with cheerful dandelions and who can resist a heart-shaped chocolate?!
    It's true that blogging friends have also become part of my life and I just love it that way, especially as we can chat to people all over the world and share part of their lives.
    I always love to hear about life in other countries.
    I know an American blogger in England who actually did organize a get-together tea in London to meet other fellow-bloggers in England. Wasn't that a lovely idea? They had a fantastic day by the sound of things too! You could do the same for people who don't live too far from you!
    Have a happy weekend! Greetings from Switzerland (just a little too far to travel for tea at your place!)

  11. cathy, i enjoy your blog so much. i love going on nature walks with you and seeing your treasures. so happy that our paths crossed and am blessed to call you a friend. xoxox

  12. Cathy, this is the first time I am visiting your blog. Looks like you have a lot of great people commenting here, and you have some really nice posts. I look forward to reading your stories, and those chocolates - to be honest - look SO good. I hope you have a wonderful Valentines :)

  13. Cathy, thank you for the hearts and flowers! It's a joy and privilege to have you be part of my life. I love your thoughts about lunch -- that really would be so much fun! Then maybe a photo walk after....... :-)
