12 Days of the Valentine Queen
Day 9: Hearts
I love hearts! Always have. I was never a "rainbow" or "unicorn" kind of little girl, but I always loved hearts. I remember a tiny mirrored pink heart pin I had as a child that I thought was the most beautiful thing in the world. These days, I have heart shaped faceted garnets that I wear in honor of the holiday, but I still love those hearts!
I also love that hearts are a simple shape for children. It is something they can recognize and draw early on. Even very young little ones learn that it represents love... how great a shape is that???
