Love rocks

As a little girl I was always on the search for the perfect
heart rock.

It was for my mom because she loved them
And collected them.
I loved to see her face light up as she accepted each love-shaped stone.

My kids are the ones who hunt for them now.
They find them for me because when I became a mom
I also became a collector.

Displaying them in February seems the right thing to do.
I love to see their faces light up
as I display each little token of love that they gave to me.

I hope my little collection of love rocks
keeps growing as they do!

My mother in law is a heart rock collector also. Every time we are on an outing, she is always looking and we also look too. I think it is a beautiful thing to collect heart rocks. I love that you children find them and give them to you, and so neat that your mom collected them.
And I love your new family photo!

That is such a cute tradition. Where do you display them? How many do you have? We may have to start that tradition ourselves.

I might have to copy this idea. Love it!

Loved the reminder. I just gave Dad a heart rock for Valentine's Day today. It was big enough to write on the back, "You still rock my world". I'm sure he liked the chocolates better. Have some that I penned on the dates and who gave them to me..kids and grandkids..such treasures..not just the heart rocks. Love you, sweetie. Happy Heart day!
