Neighborhood Love

This morning I had an urge to brighten up some of the dirty areas in my neighborhood.
So I cut out tons of hearts on pink tape and stuck them in fun places.

Finally those old pipes have a purpose!


Moo even came to help spread some love ;)

Hi Katie-
Today is my 16th birthday and I was just hoping that you'd have a new post. And this is perfect!
This weekend I studied for finals, made sparkly paper butterflies, frolicked in the sun and started a new book.

Thanks for another great post!

As a firm believer that kitties spread love, I'm happy to see that Moo is on board & providing evidence to support my hypothesis.
