Showing My Heart

I was planning to write about my running last week and my plans for this week (first half marathon Saturday!!), but I was tagged by Mel (Tall Mom on the Run) to "Show My Heart." Since this is more fun than recapping my runs, I will have to get around to that later.

Here is my assignment: "With as much creativity as you can muster, show your heart in: a picture, poem, a song (or piece of music), a phrase (or quote), an item of clothing, a place, and (just for fun) a Disney princess."
A Picture

"Making the decision to have a child is momentous. It is to decide forever to have your heart go walking around outside your body." (Elizabeth Stone)

After I had my first baby, I found this quote. It is exactly how I feel about my girls.

A Poem

In spite of my degree in English, I am not a big poetry fan. I never really enjoyed reading or writing it, so this one is really tough. I am going with a book that is essentially a really long poem, because it is one of my favorites:

A Song

This one was hard because so many U2 songs have meant something significant in my life with my hubby, but I have to go with "I Love You Always Forever" by Donna Lewis because it is "our song."

A Phrase/Quote

"If you want to know what a man's like, take a good look at how he treats his inferiors, not his equals." (Spoken by Sirius Black in Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire)

This is just one of the great quotes from the series, which I love!

An Item of Clothing

My first official running shoes, Saucony ProGrid Rides. Saucony changed their styles and now have the Ride 2s, which are sadly not the same.

A Place

New York City will always have my heart. My husband and I lived just outside the city for almost a year, and that time and the city will always be special to me.

A Disney Princess

No question on this one. Belle is my favorite, and not just because she loves to read. She is compassionate, smart, honest and loyal. I promise I haven't totally brainwashed my 3-year-old to claim Belle is her favorite.

Holy cow, that took longer than I expected!! Now I tag:

  1. This pic of you and your babies made me cry! So precious.

  2. Yay! I really like this - I love the picture of you and your children - I cant wait to be a mom!

  3. GReat picture!!

    So funny that you were an English Major but not a poem fan. Dr. Seuss is pretty darn amazing.

    I have been to New York once for business, spent 3 wonderful days there and ache to go back..funny thing is I am not a big city person. But there is something about grabbing a $1 bagel and walking Central Park.. One day I WILL make it back there.

    Thanks for playing!
