treasured

Each Wednesday I post about some sort of treasure I found during the past week. It might be thrifted or found on a walk or whispered in my ear or discovered on a dark shelf in the basement. Something. Anything that makes me feel lucky and thankful. It doesn't necessarily have to make its way home with me - it just has to be noticed. The idea is for it to cost very little and feel very big. After all, this isn't about acquiring new things; it is about paying better attention to the world around me.

If you discovered a treasure this week (a new friend, a snow fairy, a fancy dish at the thrift store, a bird's nest) please do share it, as well as any links, in the comments section below.

Yesterday morning, Mouse and I visited our friends Ariana and James at Good Egg Farm.  We brought a brioche to share, and they set the table with sweetest strawberries and glasses of cold spiced iced tea.  After snack, we visited with their new lambs, which may be the most adorable creatures in the entire universe.  Truly.  Look at that wooly face!  Mouse and James fed them grain, stroked their wooly bodies, and had a nice hearty conversation about their digestive systems.  

After a short woodsy walk, some sand play, and coloring, it was time to go home.  And, as we drove down the hill back to town, we chatted about how nice it is to spend slow, warm, summer mornings with dear friends (and lambs).
