I (heart) Hearts

Happy Valentine's Day!

"Love is an irresistible desire to be irresistibly desired." Mark Twain

Here I am in Chicago enjoying Michigan Avenue and the hearts decorating the "Magnificent Mile." You've see nthese art displays at different times in different cities.  Maybe one year, they'll have fiberglass cows.  They offer the blank plain old white fiberglass form to artists and different companies who get creative with their personal deisgns.  After the public display, they auction them off for charities.  I love it!  Michigan Avenue was crazy with these fiberglass hearts.  And the people were crazy for them, everyone was snapping photos. That's spring in Chi-town baby!

This one was awesome, displayed behind glass as it is signed by all of the Cubs players.  Tell me that won't raise some cash for a needy charity.

Ya gotta have "Da Bulls! It's Chicago, after all.  I know they had "Da Bearss" but I couldn't find that heart.

"It was not into my ear you whispered, but into my heart. It was not my lips you kissed, but my soul.". Judy Garland
LOVED this one.  Somehow they knit a sweater for this big red heart!  How cool is that!

I'm also here to support my big sis...Fight Like A Girl, AJ!

Ciao Bella
