Have a Heart...

Unknown Mami
My Sundays in My City has a heart theme in honor of Valentine's Day. Thank you Unknown Mami for sponsoring this!


Our downtown area tried to drag tourists here (in the middle of winter when things are pretty quiet) so they made a big hoopla over Valentine's Day.




My girls and I hit the beach for their annual Valentine's Day photo. I have taken a picture of them around Valentine's Day every year since they were little. I included some old pictures of them in this post.

This heart is made with mermaid toenails. Yup, that's what everyone calls them because they are shiny and beautiful. (Like toenails are shiny and beautiful?)

I tried to make the girls in the shape of a heart, but it turned into a giggling fest. K made a broken heart. Bummer, right?



This is a mussel shell that I found exactly like this on the beach!


And here are my Valentine's.

Have a great day!

I love all the natural hearts. I went to the beach this weekend too, and found a 'toenail.' Thanks, now I know what to call them.

Happy V-Day to you and yours.

I think I'm less disturbed by the "pretty" toenails than the fact that even women with an aquatic tail still have to worry about pedicures! ;)

Hope you have a wonderful Valentines Day with your two sweeties. :)

I love the mermaid toenails. Now, I hate to be gross, but that first shot? It makes me think of some kind of animal droppings. Dare I ask??! :)

I love the photos, especially the one of your girls! Toenails? You learn something new everyday! I wish I could say I went to the beach, but no. However, this Valentine's Day was special around here, too. Happy Valentine's Day to you and yours!

(BTW, did I tell you I love the photo at the top of your blog. I hope I can visit the area someday.)

Lovely pictures! Especially, the heart made from "toenails" and of the girls.

Happy Valentine's Day.

Sue that is such a lovely VD post. I love all the work you and your girls did on the sand with those shells and trying to make hearts and all. I am glad that it is not snowing where you are at. I wonder what snow looks like on sand?

Have a lovely week.
