Ten on Tuesday | Hearts (just for fun).

…it’s Valentine’s Day this Saturday. And in that spirit, Carole‘s asked us to share about love. I’ve had fun thinking about this list all day – things that make me smile and warm my heart…hearts (just for fun).

♥ Tuesdays with Charlie. He’ll be five months old this Friday and I love that I get to see him at least once a week. On Tuesdays, I have him all to myself (although I think Holly is just about to insert herself and demand her own Charlie time). I love that I get all the photo ops. And if I’m lucky, I get a really wonderful one. (this one happened before noon… so I could relax for the rest of the day).

♥ my iPhone. phone (probably the least used function :-), camera, texts, podcasts, books, weather, fitbit,  mail, Instagram … all in one little device.
♥ Instagram. yeah, it deserves its own heart. If this had been around before blogs, I’m not sure I’d even be writing this.
♥ knitters. I am so blessed to know quite a few in real life…family and friends….and on-line. 
♥ Ravelry. no explanation needed here either, right?
♥ quiet time.
♥ walks in the park with Lauren. exercise and girlfriend time combined.
♥ a new (knitting) project. hopefully I’ll have more than one to share tomorrow.
♥ signs of spring. when I walked Holly this afternoon I saw pink buds. yep, February 10th. 
♥ this Ten on Tuesday community – supportive, encouraging, inspiring…and fun!

    Oh, that little Charlie! I'm so happy you post photos of him here — because I love to get my Charlie-baby fix. He is just a sweetheart!

  • Bonny

    You've captured Charlie and all his delightful cuteness! I hope your knitting project(s) tomorrow are what I think they might be; you're going to need some extra warmth in Madison!

    <3 <3 for this week's Charlie photo-love the list-so much I can relate to-photographed the daffodils and what might be a tulip sprouting up the other day. Could spring really be here early?! Fingers crossed.

  • Honoré

    We're all so glad when 'It's Tuesday!' too so we get to see that happy bébé Charlie!
    Signs of spring- not around here: we're gearing up for another arctic deep freeze this weekend! I'd love to see a daffodil!

    Hello Charlie! He's just precious! My sister in law says 5 months is the age for baby commercials because they are just perfect! )(Even though they are really always perfect!) Looking forward to seeing your new project and hoo-ray for your trip which is so close!

    Just looking at that smile, brings a smile to my own face :). Our snow is receding and I've just spotted some bulb shoots today – hurrah!

    That photo is ADORABLE!!! I'll have Junah on Saturday & overnight this weekend and I'm looking forward to working a photo shoot into the schedule! He's 13 months old tomorrow — already!
