I am starting a series called My Favorite Things, to showcase a few things a week that have brought joy. And while it focuses on things (sometimes), I hope that the posts translate to how joy can come from a handful of objects, and that fewer is, truly, better. It is also valuable to me that not all things are my own, neither are they all new. Lastly, not all things are physical, such as good mid-day lighting, or the first frosty morning. While it was originally created as a personal project aimed at de-cluttering my camera, always devoid of memory, it is also meant to be a weekly public reflection of my most gratifying moments. Without further adieu, here are this week’s favorites.
- This wreath
… for signaling Fall at one of our favorite coffee spots.
2. This sticker
… for re-vamping this phone case into something new.
3. This linen apron
… for always being pretty, even when tossed haphazardly onto a chair.
4. This apple pie
… the first of Thanskgiving pie orders from Aero Bakery.
5. These hardcover photo books
… for a morning of perusing through mems, the makings of which were enjoyable indeed.
