This is What Love Looks Like

This Mama Frog has been a little blue lately, which is not such a good color.  I have been feeling down and underappreciated and like all that I am doing is an exercise in futitlity.  But I got my new camera in on Tuesday and so yesterday, I decided to actively document what LOVE looks like during my ordinary old days.

So for those interested- this is what we do all day.  We love….

Yesterday was “I love The Boy” Day.  What “I Love You” day is complete without fresh doughnuts?

Especailly when you split them in half and fill them with homemade whipped cream and strawberries.

Sometimes love looks like freshly liberated chickens, released for a morning snack by one Tiny Tadpole who waits impatiently every morning to see his “Chick chicks.”

Love can also look like gently shooing chickens from your garden while they scold you for interrupting their snack.

Love looks like a sidearmed hug to a little brother.

It can also like a kiss for your canine buddy.

Sometimes love is rascally and involves trying desperately to get to the garden hose so you can spray your Mama. DSCN0069

Love is two sisters on a hammock, talking and laughing together.

Love is making faces while your big sis tries to pose pretty.

But its even better when it multiplies.

And even a little more.

Love is a boy and his dog.

Best buddies.

Because every boy needs a best friend.

Love is rescued chickens getting a pedicure.

Especailly when they are crazy wild.

I am glad we rescued them too.

Love is Butterbeer Ice Cream ready for the freezer.  Especially on a hot day.  Especailly when its “I Love The Boy” Day.DSCN0098

Love is a duck egg.  Used in the ice cream, picked out by kids who just wanted to try them.  Love is saving the shells to share with friends.

Love is not one big thing.  Love is made up of 5 million tiny things during the day.  What does love look like for you today?
