share the love | happy valentine’s day 2011

“Sometimes your joy is the source of your smile, but sometimes your smile can be the source of your joy.” —Thich Nhat Hanh

Happy heart day! Do something that makes you happy — that makes you smile — today. I’ll be admiring my bouquet of red tulips, noshing on dark chocolate (good for the heart!), sipping red wine (also good for the heart!) and choosing a nonprofit organization to donate either my time or money to this year. Share the love. Happy Valentine’s Day to you and yours.

    I love that Tich Nhat Hanh quotation! Wonderful post, Kim. I love the idea of spreading the love by giving to a nonprofit or by volunteering. Oh, and chocolate and wine are good ways to show love to yourself, always! I find I frequently need to focus on loving myself, and those little things are quick, easy ways to do so. Great ideas, and BEAUTIFUL pictures!

    Thanks Megan! I have always been inspired by Thich Nhat Hanh’s teachings — his book, “True Love,” is amazing. I’ve had his quotes on my Facebook wall for years! Always good to revisit them and to remember to show love to yourself…and to share it with others when they are willing to receive it. <3 xx
