i have found love.



in silly smiles

and belly laughs and sunshine.

in sleepy car rides

and simple tunes played on a table top piano.

in hand-drawn superheros and swordfights,

tears and snuggles and sweet kisses.

i didn’t find love where i thought i would find it.

instead i found love in unexpected places

and imperfections

and seriously,

that is the most beautiful thing.


  1. Dear Lisa,
    I’ve been following your blog for a few months now. I am really grateful that God has led me to your blog, full of inspirations and love! (I love taking pictures too!)

    I want to share with you a photo that I took last year…
    Isn’t it amazing how God places all these daily surprises for us?
    Like my inspiration for the “Heart Collection”- love is always around, keep looking & share the love!

    God bless you and your family,

    P.S. your photo reminds me of the heart that I found in my little “lovely” brother’s hair!
    what an unexpected places…^^

  2. I would love to win the bird flying away from the birdcage in memory of my sister, Judy, who died 3.5 years ago from cancer. The bird is Judy and the cage is the cancer. When she died, she escaped the cage that cancer had her in. Now she flies forever free and healthy in Heaven with the angels!

  3. I live my life continuously being thankful for the simple things:

    sunshine after rain
    rain after too much sun
    my cat chasing me in the paddock
    birds everywhere in our garden
    beautiful everything

    Thanks for your gorgeous post! Smiles
