I’ll admit it, I am not a particularly talented gift giver- or giver of things. My leaning more towards a minimalistic bent might have something to do with that. (As a mother of five children and all still living at home, I view myself as a minimalist who is surrounded by entirely too many things, most of them strewn across the floor. I digress…)
If I happen to have a lightbulb moment and come up with a gift idea I think is perfect for someone in my life I get really excited because it’s kind of like lightning striking, I’m afraid- a rare phenomenon.
Last year my friend and her husband stopped by for lunch as they were passing by on their way to visit extended family. (Have I mentioned that I love living in a rather large metro area??) When they arrived she gave me this- a gift of beauty. Not only did I appreciate her thoughtfulness, but I saw immediate possibilities as a photo subject! I love gifts that are not only beautiful, but that are also practical for this flower loving macro photographer! :)
