Stumbling upon love


I enjoy stumbling upon hearts in the wild. This weekend, we walked to lunch at one of my favorite restaurants, Founding Farmers (read my not-sex-related gratuitous opening review here). Just before we crossed over Key bridge, I spotted this heart sticker on the ground. It was small but it made me smile.

It’s not every day that one stumbles upon random heart images in one’s town, but it is more often than we realize that we find love, liking, friendship or attraction in the people we meet and in our own partners, who we perhaps too often take for granted. Too bad we pass these feelings by sometimes without a second glance. To that I say, stop and smell the roses – or at least photograph the hearts.
