Just in time for Valentines day, my cousin took part in the amazing Chain Link Heart project.
I cannot begin to imagine what it would be like not to have A.
I can't imagine what it would have been like to never bring her home from the hospital, all those hopes and dreams you have as your belly swells, just disappearing, lost.
I cannot imagine how hard it would be to begin to to get back up again. 
Which is why I greatly admire people like Jen. Their bravery and their creativity, and their ability to find beauty from the saddest of situations, astounds and inspires me. 
Happy valentines to all those who have loved and lost, who walk around each day with a part of their heart missing, and somehow still see magic and magnificence, who still get up each day ready to love and live again.  I am sure somehow, somewhere, someone will give you what you need to feel almost whole again. 
And as for me, this Valentines, I will hold my daughter and husband close, and be grateful that I am blessed enough to have two beautiful people holding my heart together.

Happy Valentines

So out there in Blogland I was inspired by:

Making your own font (over at Decor8) sounds like fun. 

LOVE this concept of Melbourne photographer Kristen Cook, of documenting her childrens Januaries every year .  It made me laugh and cry and hug A way too tight cause I know its gonna go way too fast. (discovered via Mum the Photographer)

Art/ photography/ reflections.  It reminds me to look up more often, and take in the beauty of simple moments. 

City Map Quilts - Sleeping under Paris every night, sounds good to me! :)

Have a fabulous week!
