day 115: sweet root village

sweet root village shares the sweetness of friendship and memories


inside the box were little seedlings and little words, both with big life


and underneath the rafia-ed excitement, a brown paper package (tied up with string)


eagerly opened, revealing those floppy, happy, blooming, smiling peonies that carried us through our wedding day


and continue to stay to this most ordinary evening, though aged and weary and dusty and rosy


As our first wedding anniversary quickly approaches we are reminded to sit down, stay a while, and enjoy each other’s company. For what was new and pretty grows lovelier with age, but only if we continue to build from that most flawless beginning. Thank you @sweetrootvillage for the sweetest show of friendship, for this preserved memory of that most wonderful day, the mark of a new life
