Just precious! You are taking amazing photos! Yes.

And I just love those little pink "candies" which look like heart candies. But I think they are not really candy. Sooooo cute, either way.

Aunt Amelia's Attic said...

I just had to come back again and rave about your photos!!! Especially that first one. Look at the shadows and light and close up and... Wow!

You are getting all the way to amazing!

Hugs....

May the day of love...always be remembered as a cherished spot of time...in which two hearts, became one!

Ceekay- Thinkin of Home said...

Jane...so funny girl...you give me too much credit. I found the heart paper clips a couple of years ago. I don't have very many left!
I have the same xoxo on my front door. I have to tell you...I got a fine from my HOA this week. You wanna know why?? I had silk peonies in a pot with hearts in it for Valentine's day. Apparently, that is "illegal". Now mind you I have used this pot for 3 years...but no more! Can you tell I was ticked. So I forgot to take my door picture. Thanks for the reminder!!

Manuela@TPOH said...

That first photo has such beautiful light! I love XOXO - so cute and the pink candy corn. Love the quote you ened your post with - so true!

OH! Jane, what beautiful photos you have shared, but the quote just made my day.

Thank you for sharing and for also visiting me and sharing of your first date. There was just something special about those drive-in theaters that I miss, and I too loved going to the restroom and giggling with my girlfriends and yes refreshing that most delicious red lipstick(wink).
Enjoy your day.
Hugs,
