Gum Heart

Hot Sauce Heart

Green Balloon Heart

Hello Hearts!

Hearts are everywhere. In the concrete, in the leaves, in the litter... You just have to keep your eyes open and natural hearts will pop out to greet you wherever you go. 
I started finding hearts for El Pew who has been the most important person in my life. She's a mermaid, a unicorn, a genius, a healer, an inspiration, a riot, and she saved my life. El was going through a difficult time and I walked outside and looked for a sign that things would be okay. Instead of looking to the sky, the concrete called to me showing me a perfect little heart cut right out of it. I took it's picture with my phone. 
From that heart on, I've found thousands of perfect natural hearts everywhere! I never touch them or manipulate them (or their pictures) in any way. Whether they have permanently etched themselves into the world, or are there for a moment and then blow away, I try to catch all the hearts that I can. 
Here is a place for you to see my hearts and to add hearts of your own. 
I invite you to find what you need, wherever you are. 
Love, Kerry
