Hi everyone,

I'm participating in the "One Beautiful Thing" link-up over at Brooke McGlothlin's blog "Surprised By Life"

She's also hosting a really cool giveaway for some awesome photography classes. Click on the link above to check it out.

Here is my one beautiful thing for the week:

My sweet friend D. from church invited me over to her house yesterday for some tea, fruit and crochet.  She's a military wife, so it was really cool to learn a bit more about her life as a military spouse. She's also a fantastic crocheter.

D. taught me how to crochet a granny square. I'm an experienced knitter, but granny squares terrified me, until yesterday.

She is the sweetest friend and bought fruit for us to eat, since I have to eat gluten free for health reasons. Berries are a good choice.  I just had to snap a photo of this because I love the bowl. It's so simple, but it has some serious retro vintage appeal. 

The fruit looked really patriotic sitting in that bowl, too. Well, not for long, because we ate it all :) :) :)

That's the news from the ocean shores of California today. Love and hugs to your day today, Heather :)

oh yum berries. I recently bought some Oregon strawberries. We ate some and later in the week I cut rest of them up and froze them. Megan and I had some on our chocolate ice cream last night. So good! Glad you are making friends and sharing your life in CA. Take care!
