For years, my dear Auntie-in-law blessed me with a subscription to Martha Stewart’s Living magazine. As a bumbling new home-maker, I looked forward to it’s monthly arrival in my mailbox with eager anticipation.
Without fail, the highlight of every issue was the 1-2 page collection of Good Things; abbreviated little excerpts, ideas, or items carefully curated for beauty, simplicity, and practicality.
Nowadays, many bloggers similarly post regular round-ups of a few of their favorite things*… helpful or inspiring retail treasures that they feel compelled to share with their readers.

As yesterday was my birthday, I thought I’d do something similar for all y’all…

We spent my actual birthday up at the nearby reservoir, trying to beat the heat. We scorched ourselves (not the kids) in the abundant sunshine, playing and picnicking on the water for hours before hiking to a waterfall.

Another Good Thing…
Two final Good Things that arrived recently are my friend/former neighbor‘s twin baby boys. I shared about them here, when they were secret buns cooking away in her oven. She let me hold them both when I popped in to drop off an Edible Arrangement this week, but I failed to sneak away with one without her noticing.
Good Things seldom come from a store… but on occasion, they do.
