The other day I went to Trader Joe’s, and this mini orchid caught my eye. It was all of 5 or 6 bucks, so of course I brought it home. It is the sweetest, best little thing.
In the blog world, the question “What makes you happy?” has been circulating around for years. It’s a great feel-good question, and it’s always nice to reflect on, but the answers are usually along the lines of: walks on the beach, cool fall evenings, the sun through the trees. I won’t deny that those things are nice, but let’s take it down a notch to the things — the PHYSICAL things (that we may or may not have bought with money) that also bring us great joy. I’m talking: a great Forever21 find, an antique chair, a bag of BBQ chips.
Mine include: A special coffee mug, my newly painted table, and this orchid. Definitely this orchid. Now yours!
