Simple Things for Christina

Christina of Soul Aperture is having her birthday today. So in honor of her amazing writing, pictures, and insights, those of us that love her are making lists of Simple Things.


Hot biscuits and honey
Walls of family photos
Spontaneous summertime picnics
Lavender sachets


Bouquets of freshly cut wildflowers
The throaty chirp of bullfrogs at night
Black raspberries fresh from the bush, and red stained fingers
Watching William play with Hot Wheels
Huge stands of rambling roses and their heady old rose smell
Hardwood floors smelling of Murphy's Oil Soap


Fields of clover
Soft summertime showers
Old soft tee shirts
My grandfather's old "virgin acrylic" sweater
Laying your head down on a brand new pillow
Purple pink sunset skies


Happy birthday, Christina. I can't imagine the world without you.
One love.
