It's the Simple Things...

that make life sweet. We're having a simple party all across blog land today. Won't you join us?


tulle
daisies
pedicures
fleece blankets
well-loved stuffies
newly pierced ears
discovering a new blog
gleam of light on crystal
jaded innocence of teenagers
a new journal quietly waiting
the smell of a ripe banana
making a new friend
feel of a heavy book
mugs full of pens
red satin slippers
picture books
candlelight
brown eggs
laughter
poems



Image and idea from Christina of Soul Aperture.
