Paul had bought me flowers and put them in this vase before giving them to me. Jennifer, we have had this vase for ages and I had never noticed the hearts (there are actually three altogether) before! For me your project goes beyond just finding hearts - it is a reminder to slow down and take the time to really look at and appreciate our surroundings - and of course I will always think of Lorenzo when doing so."

I didn't really know what you were doing with all of your hearts until the other day. Just knew that I kept seeing them pop up in your IG feed. Thought maybe you just assigned yourself a scavenger hunt project to help you settle into and/or encourage you to explore your new surroundings. Then the other day, I checked out your blogspot. Had heard about what happened but didn't know the rest of the story. In any case, I'm now on the lookout for hearts for you too. It seems like a lovely and healthy way to process it all."
