Three Beautiful Things

1. Easter break. Jesse is home from college for 4 days, we took a break from school, and we are in celebratory mode. Lovely.

2. Café table. This was my Great-Aunt Flossie's little table. She passed away 15 years ago at age 104, and yet here is this little table of hers still. One night this week we ate a simple dinner of pasta with asparagus and goat cheese here, with the candle lit and the flowers bursting. We were under our carport, but I swear it felt like someplace special. Oh. It was someplace special.

 3. Low country boil. We celebrated Jesse's 19th birthday a week or so late with a low country boil: shrimp, mussels, corn on the cob, sausage, red potatoes, and onions all cooked together in a big pot, poured out on the table, and served with a side of fried okra. Perfection.

What beautiful things are in your world today?
