Share Your Heart!

Valentine’s Day is just around the corner. Seriously, people, it’s tomorrow.

What better way to celebrate than by starting a new tradition, paper-hearts style. Wondering what that means? Check out this adorable video by my author friend, Courtney Walsh, and her husband…


Isn’t that adorable? It’s a new tradition the characters in Courtney’s novel, Paper Hearts, start in their small town, and it’s a new tradition we can start in our homes!

That’s exactly what Courtney’s #ShareYourHeart campaign is all about. She’s encouraging us to create our own version of a “paper heart”.

I’ve been having a blast making these little things for my husband throughout the week (I’ve made some for my son, too!). Each one takes a total of 5 seconds to make, and yet it’s such a cute, fun way to say I Love You. Even more fun when you find a clever place to hide them.

i love you too

As if the simple joy of spreading the love isn’t enough, as part of the #ShareYourHeart campaign, you also have a chance to WIN a pretty awesome prize! All you have to do is find Courtney on Facebook (, and SHARE the Paper Hearts Book Trailer with your friends…Then enter the Rafflecopter Giveaway below! That’s it, easy as pie and you could win ALL of this!

They’re Playing Our Song

wedding danceOn our wedding day, Ryan and I danced to I Don’t Wanna Miss A Thing.

I guess we were both fans of Aerosmith.

Or maybe we really liked the movie Armageddon.

I don’t remember why we chose that song.

I just know that on the rare occasion it comes on the radio, my smile is inevitable.

Songs have this way of bringing back memories. And the memories attached to that one are sweet.

Let’s Talk: What’s your song? Or if you don’t have one, what song do you think is particularly romantic?
