Yes, yes, a million yeses. "A multitude of small delights constitute happiness." Monsieur Baudelaire had it perfectly right. And your blog is always so full of these small delights. Thank you, Koralee.

Can't wait to see what's cooking with those strawberries, yum. They look scrumptious in that picture. Xoxo

Baby Luca is loving strawberries, so I'll look forward to your recipe post and save a few to puree for him :-)

I think you've inspired me to do a little inspiration board of the little things that make me happy. Just looking at your little red & blue pics makes me smile.

Vicki said...

Those red tulips are making me smile, too. I read every Trixie Belden book I could get my hands on as a young girl growing up in the 60's. Happy Tuesday, dear friend! Vicki
