I always marvel at those of you who share your images for Love Thursday here, and comment, “I didn’t even notice the heart when I took the picture.” That never happens to me! If I take a picture of a heart, boy-howdy, I notice it. It never magically appears.
Until this week.
I was looking through some old photographs I took when I was living in my homeland of Trinidad & Tobago (I’m feeling a bit homesick these days), and I came across the shot above, taken about 2-1/2 years ago. This little cabin is in the small fishing village of Grand Riviere, on the north shore of Trinidad. Grand Riviere happens to be the nesting ground of giant leatherback turtles, and every year my husband, daughter and I would make the 2 hour drive to this little cabin, so that we could walk out to the beach after dark and watch these huge animals lumber onto the beach and lay their eggs, before returning to the ocean. It is one of my favourite memories of life in Trinidad, and one of my favourite spots. I love this picture.
But it was only this week that I noticed the light in the upper right hand corner of this image was in the shape of a heart.
How positively fitting.

Happy Love Thursday, everyone. Please leave your links of love in the comments below, and be sure to check out these hearts that seemed to magically materialize in the images left by Snowfire11Ro and mainemomma2007 in the ShutterSisters Flickr pool.
And may love suddenly appear in your lives today.
