Christina, over at Soul Aperture, is celebrating a birthday today! Happy Birthday, Christina!
Soul Aperture is one of the most beautiful blogs in the universe. Beautiful photos, peaceful words, and an absolute oasis from the world. Christina gives us a moment to sit and breathe cool, fresh air. To celebrate, we're sending her lists of our favorite simple things.
Dear Christina, lover of roses and all things gentle and pretty--my offering!
The smell of toast in the morning.
The feeling of freshly lotioned feet (it's true!)
Cuddling with the kids after their bath.
A purring cat in your lap.
Finding that the birthday cake tastes just as good--or better--than the frosting!
Homemade bread, warm from the oven, with butter slathered all over it.
A honeybee deep inside a flower.
Garden dirt in your fingernails.
A letter from a friend.
My favorite pair of flannelette jammies.
A child's giggle.
Fresh tomatoes and basil from the garden.
A cardinal splashing aroubd in the neighbour's birdbath.
Popsicles dripping on your chin.
Playing in the sprinkler
Bare feet in dewy grass.
The lovely Se' Lah is hostessing this surprise party, so drop on by her place.
You can't miss it--the balloons and streamers are a dead giveaway!
A song *ahem*
Happy Happy Birthday Christina dear
Happy days will come to you all year
If I had one wish then it would be
A happy-happy birday to you from me!
OK. Now go have a slice of that amazing cake that you posted today. It looks divine!
