I think some of the greatest gifts are the simple ones.
When I get the opportunity to sit outside on my little to enjoy that first cup of tea, I feel so content. I am surrounded by plants, dogs, and sunshine.

This is the only orchid I own. I bought it at Home Depot about a year ago for $9. Mostly because of its miniature size and striking magenta color.
One by one, the petals fell until there was nothing but tentacles and waxy leaves. I didn’t know what to do. I kept it moist, left it on my windowsill, and waited.
And then a crazy thing happened. Tiny green buds began to appear. Now, almost a year later it’s almost ready to burst.
So is my heart.

It never gets old.
