Simple Things

It was a particularly windy day in Boston yesterday. There was debris all over the road and sidewalks; leaves, acorns, branches, trash- you name it, it was there.

As I got off the T and walked to my apartment I saw the cutest little oak branch just lying in the middle of the sidewalk, complete with an acorn still attached. It looked too pretty to just leave there so I picked it up. I brought it home and put it in some water, hoping that it would stay green so I can enjoy nature inside for a bit.


With a pretty candle lit and a movie on TV it was a quiet, simple evening at home. The best kind in my opinion.

so cute.

one time I made a centerpiece out of branches, with leaves on them, for a baby shower. Not because I was cute, but because I forgot to buy flowers and broke them off a bush in my front yard:)

Ms. Bright- it was a vanilla candle, actually one of those Glad-e candles...you know the French kind :)
