Well, I know a lot of warm hearted people, and people with big hearts. Their human nature is to be giving and generous, sweet and funny, and positive and uplifting. They share their hearts in everything they do for others. So, Big Hearts is inspired by their nature.

Photo Locations: Jones' Beach, Long Island, NY. Special thanks to the family who let me borrow their teen to get wrapped for the photo. Her mom asked, "Did it feel good?" And the daughter said "Yeah, very good!" Made my day! It was very windy, so I had a challenge getting more photos at the beach. I did lose a clothespin. Other photos were my yard, and bedroom.
