Y’all my friend Courtney Walsh’s book Paper Hearts is finally available for you to buy. Here is the world’s best trailer that gives you a hint of why this book will be a hit!
One of the aspects that captivated me as I readPaper Hearts was the way one of the couples preserved and memorialized their love day by day through paper hearts. If you read the book (which you really should), you’ll see how those hearts become a key piece of the story.
We’re in the process of moving — and part of that has meant I’m packing and pitching 12 years worth of life. One thing I can’t — no, won’t — pitch is the small box filled with letters and cards Eric and I sent each other over the course of our friendship, courtship and early marriage. Those letters capture the reality of who we were at that stage. At one point we were single-handedly keeping Hallmark and Dayspring in business!
There is something powerful about writing down your feelings…even if they’re run-of-the-mill, every-day feelings.
Sometimes we need that reminder of why we fell in love. The reminder of what we love still. And the reminder of who we are in the eyes of our love.
I was inspired by the novel to make a fresh commitment to surprising my love with notes — no matter how small — that remind him how much I love and appreciate him. If Hallmark sales explode, you know why.
What you do: Create your own version of a “paper heart”. This can be ANYTHING that suits you. Literally a heart cut from a piece of copy paper can work or a post it note. Or, if you’re feeling artsy, it can be a painting, a sketch, a bookmark, or of course a card!
Who do I write my heart to? Your kids. Your husband. Your best friend. A teacher who changed your life. A mentor. Someone you admire who has no idea who you are. In short, anyone you want!!
