Hi there! Sorry for my brief little blogging absence-I was away for a long weekend and just got back yesterday. Also, I am guest blogging on the English Muse, so be sure to stop by!
Here are some of my most recent findings:
I love this project that Joshua Langlais has taken underway. It's called I Heart Strangers and everyday for this past year, Joshua has made it a point to talk to one stranger and get to know them better, as well as take a picture of them so that he can blog it.

Here's what he has to say about himself:
"hi there. my name is joshua langlais. i've got a thing for people. and i've got another thing for photography. so i am working on ways to combine the two in a worthwhile way...my attempt at loving my neighbors. every single day, i go out into the world and seek out someone i've never before met. i introduce myself and ask them if i can photograph them. i take something valuable away from every encounter and try to pass that along to you. i started this on september 8, 2008, with the intention of doing it for a year, but it looks like i will keep going."
Not only is Joshua doing the I Heart Strangers project, but he just recently started the I Heart People I Know project which involves him trying to make "beautiful photographs of some of the people who are close to" him.
I just think this is the sweetest idea ever. What could be a better way to show close ones that you love them?
It's not too often that I get fan mail, but when I do I get really excited and it truly brightens
my day. I think these people are so sweet, their comments just have to be shared, and maybe their kind words will brighten up your day, too!
