All Things Bright and Beautiful

Every Thanksgiving my family writes what we're most thankful for on sticky notes and paste them around the house.  Each year there's the obvious: "my family" or "my friends".  There's the funny: "milk and cookies", "my bed", or scribbles from a toddler cousin.  Last year one sticky note stuck out to me: "all things bright and beautiful," it read.  Baking cookies with my sister.  Fresh laundry.  Stumbling across an unexpected farmer's market.  Crispy apples.  Dried mangoes in the pantry.  Finding a few dollars in your ski coat from last winter.  I took this picture on a day trip to New York City this summer.  I thought the bright flowers made the dreary building beautiful and alive.  This Thanksgiving I'm going to try and notice the little things more, all the things bright and beautiful.
