Looking for the good

I've been working on taking note of the beautiful things in my life, the little things that make me happy on a day-to-day basis. I have struggled with this over the past few months, have been bogged down with sadness and worry. But the clouds are clearing and I'm starting to feel hopeful again. Writing down 3BT each day helps.

Here are yesterday's three beautiful things...

This little corner of our garden is gorgeous, isn't it? When the days get warmer, I'm going to sit in the grass here and soak it all up. Maybe I'll even try to sketch what I see.

I used to write to Em every night before I went to bed, so she'd have something nice to wake up to. I'm still writing to her, but now it's letters in this pretty French journal. I hope she's able to read them somehow. I'm also filling in the answers to the questions in this Q & A journal that my lovely sister-in-law Wendy sent for my birthday. It's a 5-year journal, and I'm looking forward to comparing my answers over the years.

My sister and I met up for lunch at Toast yesterday. Oh my, so good! We had Thai chicken soup, a delicious salad, London Fogs {known as Island Fogs here} and toast, of course. The food was great, the company even better.

How are things in your part of the world? Can you find three beautiful things around you today? Let's hear it, friends. I need all the happy I can get.


  1. Gorgeous pictures; I swear if I ever visit I will put on a least a stone in weight as every meal pic you post looks yummy. My 3BT today would be the little man standing on his own for the first time the last few days and attempting a lurching step forward, spending 3 beautiful hours outside at our nature group this morning and jumping onto the patio in between Spring showers to tend to some plant pots.
    PS: Thank you for finding out the plant and thank Alan too - now need to go hunting for one myself

    1. IF you ever visit? What do you mean IF? You are soooo visiting. We just need to figure out when.
      Talk to you soon, Cassie my dear! xo

  2. Oh that soup looks sooooooooooooooooooooooo yummy!!! 3BT hummmm - well I was up very early in the crisp morning air feeding my four legged baby who gives me a quick nuzzle as I go by. tonight - Looking forward to a quick reheated dinner from last night so I can spend more time outside and maybe go for a quick horseback ride and finally I am amazed at how my babies (the real ones)will be a year older over the next month and in my opinion they are beautiful!Take care my lovely friend - Hugs from Me

    1. Hugs right back at you, Kel. Love you! xoxo

  3. Ooo I want to go back to Toast right now, that lunch looks so good... and I was there to eat it!
    If I had to pick 3BT for today-
    1. ProD which means I can sip my latte in peace ;).
    2. I'm noticing the leaves are all coming out on the trees and it looks so fresh and alive.
    3. It's the weekend very soon and I have NOTHING scheduled that I have to do, which is a rarity!
    And just because I can, I'm adding 4. I have a great sister. I love you! xo

    1. NOTHING to do? Wow. Enjoy every second of it.

      I love you, too! xo
