I love hearts. I am going to try and share a few of my favorite things that are heart shaped or themed. I'm not sure if I can fit them on one post but, everything is worth a try right?
I love "love" stories. Give me a sappy tear fest and I'll be all over it. I will fall in love with all of the characters and mourn for more story after it is done. One of my best friends paddygirl and I used to read the most depressing stories and if i pick those books up off my shelf to this day I read it through without stop and cry my eyes out. They are the One Last Wish series by Lurlene McDaniel and they are horrible and wonderful all at once. I cry towards the end of most books because I have a tendency to become quickly attached to the characters, but these books will rip your heart right out.
Yeah all of them have titles pretty much like that, just so you know what you are getting into.
With all this heart love I have wondered where did this ridiculous shape that is called heart shaped come from? It most definitely does not look like a heart. So what's the deal? Here are three different ideas you tell me which on you believe to be true.
It was modeled after and actual heart, well more so a cattle heart because that was more available. It still does not really resemble that very much so either.
A depiction of some "parts" of the female body. I'm not going to name names, but us ladies are quite shapely and this could be partly true.
It was derived from a seed, the seed of the Silphium plant. The seeds were heart-shaped. It is said that because the plant was used as a contraceptive, the shape of the seeds became associated with sexuality and then romantic love.
These seeds were so valuable that their monies were made to look like the seeds, so cute!
So you tell me what you think it is. I think it is probably a mixture of all three as people have a tendency to mix things up a lot.
Now on to some things I just want to share:
We just recently came back from a trip to Disney World and we rode the Peter Pan ride with Peanut so many times. She actually at first got afraid or well pretended to be afraid of the part when you are in the air above London, looking down from Big Ben.
