#OnePerfectThing is a community I’m growing on Instagram.
Perfection often feels out of reach. But however imperfect you’re finding life, you can make an effort to find #OnePerfectThing. Something which makes you pause, smile and feel thankful. Since starting this idea, I’ve really taken the time to find the beautiful in the everyday – that little moment that makes your day, nested in amongst the mundane things.
September has been a lovely month. I’ve loved watching how summer has gradually started fading into autumn. The pretty blooms are still there, but so are the autumn treasures – conkers, cobnuts, golden leaves and cosier moments indoors.
My favourite photos this month remind me of all those things. Caro’s cup of tea with a pretty bloom hanging on from summer, Isabelle’s perfect blueberry pancakes, Amanda’s foraged cobnuts and Kathryn’s cosy kitten.
My absolute favourite this month is Amanda’s collection of foraged nuts
As Amanda puts it:
‘every year I watch the hazel nuts growing from scrunched up bunches of brilliant greenness. Returning to the places I’ve seen them is always a disappointment, either someone got there months ago and laid their wormy eggs or the squirrels have beaten me to it. I couldn’t resist these tiny tight packets of frayed parchment, they’ve sat on the table for the last couple of days and started to brown up. Later we’ll enjoy their creamy freshness with a mature cheddar.’
Which sums up #OnePerfectThing completely!
I can’t wait to see your October photos. Just use the tag #OnePerfectThing over on Instragram to join in.
