Find Them Everywhere

This past February I was in  our local book store having some quiet time and enjoying looking for a new book {I also love to stop and smell the insides of them}.  I came across the cutest book from Drew Barrymore called Find It In Everything.  The book caught my eye and I picked it up and started looking through it.  I instantly fell in love with it.  This book was more of a project than just a story with pages of words.  It was a project of love, it was art.  It inspired me


Basically, it is a book full of fabulous photos of HEARTS.  Anywhere and everywhere, just hearts.  If we really stop and look around us, we can find them in almost everything.  I found myself smiling as I kept turning the pages.  I thought to myself, what a wonderful project.  I love this idea.  I am always talking about taking in each moment of everyday and notice what is around us.  I had never thought to see what shapes are all over though.  I made a mental note to myself and tabled this as a future project.  Just some random hearts that I have seen during random days …

I am always looking at what is around me anyway.  I do stop and smell flowers when out walking.  I do notice birds, or blooming trees.  I watched a butterfly the other day that caught my eye while out on a run.  Then I started to notice how many places I could find hearts and I found that they really are almost everywhere.  ♥

*Have you heard of Drew’s book or seen it?  Do you take time to notice what is around you?  Do you stop and just take everything  in and enjoy a moment?  Are you thinking that this could be a fun project for yourself and even the kids?

  1. That’s amazing! I totally want to do this too. It would force me to stop and really look at things everywhere I go. There’s beauty all around us.

  2. Yes! Love it. My son is very much a visual learner so he sees things most of us would pass over…shapes, similarities etc. It’s always fun to go for a walk with him and see things from his perspective.

  3. I didn’t know about that book, but I certainly will look for it. Everyday I look at what surrounds me and I appreciate every moment of it! Nice post!

  4. This is why I love being in nature so much. You never know what you might find. On a hike once, I found moss on a tree in the most perfect heart shape. And we have a tree in our yard that has a heart shaped knot in it’s root. I agree this would make a great project for kids!

  5. I have not seen this book, but I am a HUGE Drew fan, I will have to go look at it and check it out. Sounds quite lovely!

  7. That’s so cool! I didn’t know she had a book. It is going to be on my to-read list for sure!
    Maybe I will start looking for smiley faces everywhere (not human ones, but in nature and in man-made objects).

  8. I haven’t seen this book but I love the idea! I like taking the time to notice little things like a pretty tree or a unique shadow – it feels like a secret somehow! 😉

  9. I thumbed the pages of this book at the bookstore last week (LOVE THEM, TOO). The concept is so beautiful. I’ve been taking a lot of new roads/trails for my walks and am enjoying photography more just to be able to capture what other people miss.

  10. It is nice to stop and actually see what’s around us. There are so many little things we take for granted, especially as we get older. Young kids are fascinated by everything! What a great post to remind us to pay attention.
