A Beautiful Breakfast

When everyday things, like breakfast, are beautiful, I try to pause and notice them. I also try to make everyday things beautiful out of habit. *Sometimes* I get this right. :-) This recent breakfast is one example.

I remember the first time I read of the concept of making everyday habits beautiful. It was from Alexandra Stoddard's book, Living a Beautiful Life. A good one if you haven't seen it.

Yes, yes, yes. I have tried to do this myself over the last few years. Why have pretty things if you don't use them? Why just eat when you can pause to savor? And the breakfast you shared is just lovely.
I have 3 autographed Alexandra Stoddard books and though I don't agree with all her philosophies, I do love her concepts of Living a Beautiful Life.
Thanks for reminding us all.
