Love Echoes...

David and I and Chica made the trip up North this weekend. It was a few days filled with sweet, sweet moments. You know the kind that just keep playing over and over in your mind and fill your heart with joy at being alive, and loved and loving ?

Love echoes you could call them...


Like witnessing the first snow of the season (way up North in La Conception, Quebec!)

No rush down here in Manchester, Momma Nature !


Or noticing that lilac leaves look a lot like hearts!




And feeling the love that happens between two hearts, in this case mine...


and his...



Or moments where you snuggle and hug and kiss and play with angels like this


in spite of runny noses, and coughs and media hyped up germs...

And get close to those you love,

the ones facing big changes and going through rough times...

or the ones in celebration,

like sisters turing 40 and getting blown away by the surprise !


Colorful celebrations



with many warm wishes,



a few tears of joy,


and of course, the loads of laughter !

Yes, I had myself a big dose of

love echoes this weekend...

and they are still ringing in my heart today...

Had a great weekend ! Attended my sister Natalie's 40th Surprise Birthday Bash on Friday, thrown by her best friend, Cindy, and her Man, Dave (Nat's Dave!). It was a sweet blast with lots of family and friends !(her actual birthday is November 29th)

Spent Sat. with my sister Kristina and her hubby John and Thomas and Kate (all of who have been feeling icky and under the weather but were not too bad when Uncle David and Auntie Kimmy spent the day there !)

Spent Sunday Brunch at my beautiful friend Andrea's house with her hubby James, and my gorgeous Darlene friend and her two boys. Yummy food and lovely chatting time.

David and I got home late last night...Monday has me feeling a little draggy and with tons of odds and ends to do...

But it is all good...

as I have all those sweet moments,

those love echoes...

to get me through...

Happy Monday, Beautiful Ones !

Yay your back! I felt like a little one knocking on her good friend's door over these last few days...hoping you'd pop in but you weren't home yet :) Everything sounds like it was lovely. Your little niece is growing so. It's amazing!

Those love echoes keep echoing as your post fills my heart with joy too :)

I don't know how you make those drives up north all the time for the weekend. I would be sleeping today.
Looks like you had a blast.

Sounds like a perfectly wonderful weekend...with surprises and love, love, love.

Now how is this -- I was going to post my "love echoes" rock today but did my "let loose" rock instead. I tell you we are on a vibrating wavelength! ♥

I hear those echoes al the way in Texas Girl!!! What a fun weekend and what a cutie pie!! (even if the yuckies are there:) I am wearing your awesome "Blossom" pendant this morning. Trying to coax those petals to unfold is hard and it is such a beautiful reminder for me to grow. Thank you Sweet Friend. Love, Jamie

I feel like a just took a nice long dip in the warm waters of love. ;)

Isn't it funny how love, like sound waves, bounce around in every direction? No straight lines for love, it's all encompassing, even though it's invisible to our eye, it's out there, sending echos to all of us!
