Valentine’s BINGO with Sweet Tarts

Did you have a lovely Valentine’s day yesterday? Whether you were romantically swept off your feet, spent the day loving your kiddos, had a quiet day reflecting what love means to you, ignored the holiday altogether, or anything in between, I hope your day was absolutely lovely!

So speaking of Valentine’s, I couldn’t resist the opportunity to focus on hearts for this months 10 on 10. What is 10 on 10? An awesome project I was invited to join for 2014 where we photograph on or near the 10th of the month and post 10 (or more – I like more!) photos as part of a blog hop/circle. No matter where you start in the circle, you’ll end up back where you started and have visited all the posts in the circle.

Now onto hearts… Heart of hearts. Cliche? Who, me? February, Valentine’s specifically, only rolls around once a year, right?! So here we go…
