The #AllYouNeedIsLoveProject: Capture the Heart

Happy Thursday!! It’s that time again! Time for…


So this week Carmen asked us to share a photo of something or someone that captures our hearts!

Well, that’s easy.

My family captures my heart, every single day. Even when The Hubby is annoyed about the dishes I forgot to wash or the lunch I bought yet again. Even when Joshua is wide awake and angrily screaming his head off at 5:30 in the morning for no apparent reason (which is what happened this morning). Even when Frankie misses the puppy pad yet again and has another accident on the laminate floor because he won’t go outside in the cold. Even when they make me crazy, even when I want to scream, my family captures my heart.

The other thing that captures my heart? These babies right here!

I am nothing without my books. My life consists primarily of family and reading, and I’d be lost without them. I am primarily a mom, a wife, a reader, and a writer. That’s just who I am. These things hold my heart firmly in their hands (or their pages, depending on what we’re talking about) and I’m perfectly content with that. I feel like I am who I’m meant to be, and I am because of my family and my books. They capture my heart and that’s that!

So what captures your heart?

  • The sweetest family pic ever! And your doggie is too cute. I love that you are a book lover. It’s inspiring that you are such a great book resource. You really make me want to drop it all and just be in bed reading a good book. I think we def bond over the book love we both have, among other things. Love really has no limitations, despite all the challenges it may present in the day-to-day. Thanks for sharing the loving!

    Aww, thanks, Carmen! Books are the main thing I’m on this blog for, and I’m happy to help anyone looking for something new to read! Once ShuGar Boy makes his grand entrance you might be surprised by how much time you have to read! Naptimes, bedtimes….if you’re planning to use a carrier with him (like an Ergo Baby or something), you can have your bonding time with him *and be able to read while you’re cooking dinner. I hope you’ll continue reading after he’s born — not just children’s books, but for yourself as well. It’s a great way to relax and hold on to a piece of your pre-baby self. 🙂
