Joy in little things...

You may have noticed in some of my other photos that there is this bowl of lettuce that keeps showing up in the background.  Well, I thought I'd share today a little story of why I find this bowl so fun and why I keep it prominently on my outdoor dining table.  It's partially because I love the visual texture and freshness.  It's partially because I love that feeling of growing a tiny bit of my own food (most of my garden is herbs).  It's partially because I enjoy teaching my children where food comes from. 

However, I must admit that the primary reason I love this is because of the sly look my almost-three-year-old gives me when she swipes a leaf and thinks she's getting away with something.  I never knew that the secret to getting a toddler to eat her greens is to make it seem like an adventure.  It makes me laugh every time.

What made you laugh today?
