Awwww ;)

If you visit my blog, I would love it if you would leave a comment & let me know that you've dropped by. I know my blog may not be the most exciting blog in the world, but if you're reading it, it mustn't be that boring, huh? :)

The picture of the heart was taken in downtown Detroit this past Valentine's's actually lights on the side of a building to form the how romantic is that? I've been a little depressed today, so I thought maybe posting this picture of the heart would cheer me up a little. The day I saw it, my dh & I were driving my brother-in-law around downtown Detroit as he's a truck driver & he had a load to pick up here in Michigan. So we took a drive downtown to show him some of the sites since he has never been here before. When my dh & I saw this heart, he immediately grabbed my hand to hold it. That's when you saw "Awwww" :)
