simple things for christina, and you

In celebration of wonderful Christina's birthday....a list of simple things.

ink on fingers after writing a letter
 the fragrance of soil after the rain
swallows dipping low over ripe wheat fields
the first bite into a croissant
a hot july sky with a black horizon
the first star

sleeping in his tshirt when he's gone
cream cheese frosting
a tidy woodpile
'i was thinking of you today'
a single leaf in a puddle
dew on wild raspberries
 spending the day in your pajamas

a perfect moment, and you remembered your camera

Happy Birthday, dear Christina!
Thank you for reminding us to savour the simple things.

xoxo dawn 

p.s. pictured are a batch of apple here for the recipe!

  5. Hi Dawn
    It was your Simple Things post in January that led me to Christina, so I just had to say thank you
    Have a great weekend

  6. I was just going to ask what those are - and then I saw the p.s. They look amazing.

    Every once in a while, I come across a flock of tiny birds dancing. I wonder if they are swallows. I am always captivated by them.

  7. you had me at ~ ink on the fingers. love, sheer love.
    and yummy. i think i will stay a while and enjoy the dessert.
    thank you, my friend.
