Beautiful Browns

My husband’s friend recently gave us a dozen eggs from his backyard chicken coop.  (What a great way to make us regret giving away our Easter chicks!)

I couldn’t help but pause and appreciate the subtle differences in their color.

The words “I’m not a brown girl” have come out of my mouth many times, meaning that I don’t love it enough to want it on all of my walls, or on the exterior of my house.  I just love other colors far more.  However, when I see all these shades of brown together, they are beautiful to me.   It’s almost like looking at a paint swatch, but much prettier because it’s a naturally occurring variety.

This morning I am thankful for an unexpected visual treat.  It’s uplifting to appreciate the color in ordinary things.

What color have you noticed lately?
