" Lessons in Love "








A lesson in love...





I came to know the beauty

of what love truly is...







 Love that will endure all things...







A heart that is and always will be yours...








 I am here

among the beauty of love that God

has given to take me through the valleys of life.


I am so grateful and humbled by 

the love of each of you.


May this New year be filled 

with an abundance of blessings for your lives.


I will be linking up this week with

my favorite lovelies in blog land.







Photos of our home inspired

by a new vision of love...






Have a beautiful and blessed week!

 





My love to each of you
XOXO

Beautiful words. Love is far far deeper than romance isn't it? That simple piece of salvaged wood on your wall is just what I find as beautiful. It goes well with your words. The simplicity but depth of comfort. So happy to see a post from you. xxo

You've added to the meaning of love, making it so much more then a word.
Love is the foundation to life. Kate I always love what you create around your home, but for some reason I feel a new vibe, the same but, new!
Love your peacefulness in all you create, design, and words.

Can I ask if your flooring is the allure, if so, I have been looking into it for the small investment home we are in, and of course our puppy is eating up all our carpeted edges, not to mention a mishap that is taking up our cleaning time. I want to do something that won't break the bank in what would be an ok return. So without cutting and laying new wood, I am looking for the easy way out, yet adding an appealing look to a cleaner simpler feel to what's under our footing.

If its not what it looks like it could be, then what did you use?

Love the look and have not noticed this before.
I am loving the Pacific Pine, to me it looks rustic, aged, and oh so French cottage.

Beautiful February to you and yours.

Blessings to you and your love!
Your heart is full and know one has wasted an ounce of love on you my sweet friend, deservingly I know what love means to you, and it truly is given to you freely.
Your story is a love story how ever one would want to look at it, love comes in so many ways, and I know how love effects you, a real one of understanding, you so get it, you so know the meaning, and you so know how precious it is valued. The best in knowing love, is without a doubt the best love of all is the love received heavenly, his love is greater then any fleshly love.
I adore and love how I feel so awaken to what I read when I visit you, understanding that out of adversity you have known, you also know the love that comes with it.


Love you my sweet friend.

I love the beautiful picture of you and Mr. Dior and all the lovely photos you have shared Kate. Isn't it true that we learn love through pain? Always worth the effort it takes though.
sending hugs...

Oh you brought tears to my Eyes with this poignant Post about Love my Dear Kate! I was once told that the depth of our Love can be measured by the depth of our Pain... because it True Love were not there, it wouldn't bring Pain because there would be no real Investment in the Relationship. You two are Adorable and I can see the Love and Feel it via your eloquent Words. Hugs and Blessings from the Arizona Desert... Dawn... The Bohemian
