I used to have plants. One of the things that made me feel “grown up” when I moved out on my own was to have plants and candles. LOL! That sounds so trivial, but it’s usually little things in life that make me happy. I also think it’s because growing up, we didn’t really have live plants in the house and we sure didn’t have candles.
Not long after living in an apartment, I started with a couple baby plants like these. I was amazed how these things grew and how healthy I was able to keep them. Not really sure what happened to them. Actually, I think when we moved they all got put outside and by the time, I remembered to bring them in they were nearly dead. 🙁 From there life has just made me unmotivated to keep up with anything other than me and my family, so I suppose that’s why I’ve forgone replacing them.
Not sure what made me decide to try it again. Maybe I’m seeking the satisfaction of seeing something grow and stay healthy and of course, the health benefits of having live plants. (Well, I put it on my list of 101 things to do in 1001 days!) Curious, what little things in life make you happy?
