Happy Hearts

May you find happiness in the most unexpected places, joy just around the corner, and love all along the way."
(Susan Gale)

On Tuesday I met my friend, Melissa, for an early morning walk and did a little love bombing along the way.
Cultivate caring and generosity.
Happiness is the natural state of a loving heart.
There's always shenanigans when Melissa is around.
The real joy of life is in its play. Play is anything we do for the joy and
    love of doing it, apart from any profit, compulsion, or sense of duty.
    It is the real joy of living.
     (Walter Rauschbusch)

After an hour and a half of walking, we met our friend Elena for breakfast by the marina.
As you can see, it was a gorgeous day!  We've had the most perfect weather this past week.  80 during the day and down into the 60's at night.  I'm hoping it will stay like this at least through March before the real heat sets in.

Happy Thursday!

80 would be so very hot to us right now, but I would LOVE that!!
The wind is so strong today, that even though it's warming up and melting all of the snow, it's very difficult to run against the wind, so I tried to run with it. :) I could do without the strong wind, but at least it's around 40 out right now which is a VAST improvement over winter weather.

I think it's so sweet that you share your lovely crocheted items with strangers. Such a thoughtful way of living. Have a nice evening and remainder of the week, though I guess it's the weekend now for you. Just another little bit and we will have that as well. Jim and I are reverting to our hippie youth tomorrow night and attending a Pink Floyd Dark Side of the Moon Laser Light show with our college students. Then the college students are apparently leaving us for at least Saturday and Saturday night so Jim and I will have a free day to ourselves, and with temps predicted in the 60s (which is BREAK OUT THE SHORTS here LOL) and sunny, we will definitely be taking a little road adventure in his porsche. ;)

Kindest regards,
Linda

What a wonderful outing you had! I loved that big wooden ship! I especially loved seeing the coffee lady happy with her gift. You really are an inspiration! ((hugs)), Teresa :-)

Betsy said...

Tammy I would love to be able to join you on one of your early-morning walks! The fact that you share your hearts with everyone is lovely too. I always enjoy seeing where you hang them for the unsuspecting recipient to find them. Such fun! And here I was thrilled with our 50° temperatures yesterday. Your 80° sounds absolutely wonderful. Have a lovely day my friend.
Blessings, Betsy

How nice to have friends that share your sense of day-to-day fun, and especially, shenanigans :)
And I'm so curious about that wooden ship!

A lovely get-together on a lovely day.

Here, we are still in quite deep winter, and such a stroll around, would not be comfortable. :-)

What an absolutely PERFECT day...start to finish!

Laurie said...

I just love your walk abouts and that you leave your hearts around town. Breakfast by the marina sounds fun, too!

Gorgeous blue sky and clear air for your wonderful walk. I love he quotes...especially playing. I didn't realize you are on the water with a marina. Fun with Friends...Priceless.

Love the love bombing(lol) ...spreading joy is the best a human being can do to this world.
I hope too that the temperatures remain same till March.

Dearest Tammy,
What a lovely post full of happiness and great photos from your walk and get togethers.
Love the cat in the photo with your shadows.
And what a lovely view indeed. We would all like to frame such kind of weather and hold on to it for months on end...
Hope the mail is moving and my sister in The Netherlands received her parcel today, got sent of the same day. One to Sweden... don't know how it all will work out.
Hugs,
Mariette

Such a lovely day you had Tammy, as always i've enjoyed my little peek into your world and gorgeous photos, especially as it is a grey, wet and cold day here, so cheering. Hx

Susan said...

Hi Tammy. That sounds like a perfectly delightful outing. I think you'd be fun to go places with, too. Hope the good weather holds for you. Still a deep freeze where we live but that's okay because I know that this, too, shall pass! Have a wonderful weekend. Susan

Aishwarya said...

To have a good friend to walk along and do crazy lil things like little hearts which would bring a smile to a stranger, then have a lovely breakfast with friends. Nothing like it. Happy for you Tammy.

Amy at love made my home said...

A lovely walk with your friend! I always like a virtual walk! Your hearts are so pretty, I hope that lots of people find them and enjoy them. xx

Thanks for your last two heartfelt posts, Tammy :) I love seeing your loving walk, and I pinned the grain free sugar cookie recipe. Wishing you and yours a happy weekend! xx

Beautiful surroundings and sounds lovely to take a walk with a friend
in your great weather. Your breakfast in the marina sounds like
a perfect start on the day.

I guess it´s like our summerweather for you now. :)
IF we get any summer here up in the north I mean...

Your posts are always so beautiful with the wise and thoughtful quotes.
I wish you a very nice weekend!
Sussie

You are so much fun, walking with friends, breakfast and spreading the crochet love around. We are having perfect weather here too, highs in the low 70's and lows in the 50's.
Hugs,

Hi Tammy, a beautiful post. I had wanted to do some bombing so decided to start in my own yard. I really like the heart bombing. I can add that to my sample. Sounds like all is well with you. I bet that son is a grown man now. Blessings

Lorrie said...

Such a glorious blue sky in your photos! It's fun to get together with a friend and be silly together.
80 degrees is a warm day here, and I'd love some of that just now.

Liz D said...

So beautiful! The color of the water is amazing. What a gorgeous post, thank you.

Tanya said...
