Please consider creating a post that shares where and how you find small magic and adding a comment with a link to your post. I would love to hear about it. (You have until next month on the 13th, when I will have a new post)
This month I am finding small magic in little shacks....
I love roadside farm stands, how can you not?
All different types, all different times of year, with quaint hand painted signs that are usually reminiscent of lemonade stand signs, and piles of colorful, fresh, local produce.
Little tables layed out with sweet corn
Stands with maple syrup or homemade jellies, or honey,
Strawberry shacks in spring....
At this strawberry shack you could buy what they had picked or you could pick your own. We actually got our son, Jace, to walk along with us at this strawberry patch last June. He didn't pick any but he plopped right down in the rows and played with rocks and spoke his own language, and was very patient while we picked and every now and then gave him a berry to eat.
I am still using the berries we picked and froze for my breakfast smoothies.
And now the roadside stands are full of gourds and pumpkins. I pass by 3 on my drive into work and there are so many more on back roads and just outside of town. A charming piece of small town autumn.
