What’s in Your Treasure Chest?


Definition of Treasure – anything valued or highly prized.

Since the beginning of recorded time, people have valued certain things above all others, and in order to protect these prized belongings, we’ve cleverly constructed ways to protect them from those who would take them from us. They’ve gone by various names, strongbox, safe, vault, coffer, casket, and my favorite -treasure chest.

What we’ve stored inside has varied and changed over the course of time, but some things remain constant. Precious metals and jewels are still valued today, but once teas and spices, including chocolate, as well as fine cloth was considered valuable enough to warrant a lock and key.  Today we are less inclined to lock up the silver and more inclined to lock away scraps of paper that represent our personal wealth.

But, of course, not all treasures are tangible. As a romance writer, I’m constantly reminded that the most precious treasures of all cannot be seen or held, cannot be bought or sold. They are stored in a very fragile container, one that can be broken or stolen, one that can become fragile or hardened if not handled with care. This treasure chest can expand to hold an infinite amount of love without changing its physical shape. We often go to extreme lengths to protect this treasure chest, and the love contained within, sometimes at the expense of our own happiness. But, the treasure held within this chest can grow exponentially if you allow others to see what is inside.

So, this hopeless romantic says – open your treasure chest, your heart. Let others see the love inside, and that love will come back to fill your treasure chest to overflowing. 





Now that all of that is out of the way, it's time to put rule #1 
into action! Let's have some fun!

I actually came to your blog with the intention of becoming a follower (scout's honor) not knowing I would also get the opportunity to win something. Woo hoo! Win-win!
