But I can't hike everyday. Most days I spend my days at home, and I find such joy in finding ways to bring beauty into our home.
This time of year, it's particularly easy to grab some flowers from the garden and bring them in. I don't know if anyone else in the house appreciates it, but I do. I even make a small arrangement for my girls' room.
There are other ways, besides flowers. My daughter put together this example and it was such a joy watching her create this beautiful, simple display.
It can be in the music we listen to (I love to fill our home and car with classical music ~ symphonies, concertos, chamber music).
It can be in the way we dress ourselves (I love to wear skirts and comfortable dresses).
It can be in how we present a meal. Breakfast is a special time for my girls and I. I let them order off a menu almost every day and we have ourselves a little restaurant experience right here at home. I have a couple special teapots and I enjoy making this part of our day beautiful.
I hope this beauty nurtures their soul as it does mine. I hope they can see the beauty that surrounds them everyday.
What is your favorite way to make every day beautiful?
