  3. Good Morning Amanda!!
    Love your post, as always haha!
    Just wanted to mention...
    I started a project, similar to PostSecret, and I'm looking for some help from all my blogger friends :)
    The project is called "Heartbeats in the Streets" and its to raise awareness for heart disease.
    I was inspired by another blogger that had heart disease and unfortunately passed at the young age of 29 earlier this year. So I decided to finish her project for her by getting 10,000 photos of people holding a small heart labelled with where they would "leave theirs" either with a person, or maybe a favorite place or something close to them. I would love it if you took a photo and sent it in :) Or if you wanted to let people know via your blog I would love you forever!

    The blog is on heartbeatsinthestreets.blogspot.ca/ or on facebook here: https://www.facebook.com/heartbeatsinthestreet

    Anything you do will help :)
