Visual Recipe-Love

Today’s Visual Recipe is LOVE. We could ALL give more love, and get more love in our lives… there can never be too much.

I would also like to thank one of the greatest innovators of our time, Steve Jobs, for his passion and love for what he did…so that it was no longer a job.. I guess “Job” was only in his name, but never what he did. He loved design, saw the value in it… and never gave less than he thought possible. He inspired others… and his life will continue to do the same for many now, and many more to come.

Well done Steve!

HAPPY FRIDAY!!!!
