These seriously just make my heart burst. It was this time of year when I first made my own Love Wall (as my first husband had recently left.) So I'm particularly feeling the beauty of these photos and every ounce of evidence that life is beautiful and that we are surrounded by LOVE.
From Nisha, in San Francisco:
I loved your post about your "love wall." I can relate so much--I've had a "love wall" in some form or another for a long time. At my current place, I have a love "fridge." The postcard of the heart on the beach in the bottom right-hand corner is one of the "Monday Hearts for Madeline". I think you'd really like this story. The woman (Page) who runs the website used to create a heart for her partner every Monday and placed it on her doorstep. Her partner died from cancer almost ten years ago, but Page continued to create hearts out of different materials or humans(!) and a while back, she began emailing a picture of a new heart every Monday to a ton of people. My friend who works in fundraising for a hospital told me about her, and the same friend, who visited this past August, along with some other friends and I participated in Page's 500th heart, which took place in SF. We created a huge human heart in the Presidio. It was so much fun.
Another item seen in the photo on the top right hand corner is a post card with an image of a drawing of a building, with the phrase "You know exactly what you have to do." I just love that--there was a stack of these postcards at a cafe I went to in SF a while ago.
From Jennifer, in Germany:
"Here is my 'love wall.' Though it has grown quite a bit since I posted it. It makes me happy and is such a great conversation piece. (It's also a bit more sturdy & flexible than just taping things to the wall.)"
THANK YOU NISHA & JENNIFER!!
Sending love to you both.
P.S. I welcome any more Love Walls pics! Send them my way. If you'd like, feel free to tell about one or two items. And let us know where you're from! XOXO
