A Few Good Things That Make Me Smile

It’s a quiet night at home, a night for glowing candles, cream tea, and remembering good things that have brought me joy this week.

Such as hiking through lush green fields in my favorite wellies.

Discovering strange and gorgeous things in the bush like this fallen log.

Having a picnic all by myself today: glorious sunshine, good book to read, a bowl of Greek salad with massive chunks of Feta, and a dark chocolate Kit Kat bar just for me.

These adorable faces watching me work in the yard.

A bowl of popcorn made on the stove-top, hot, buttery, salty and wonderful.

What good things are making you smile this week?
