Simple pleasure of the week: Sparkles

There are so many types of sparkles. There's the in-your-face glitter sparkle, and the more subtle sparkles like the bubbles in your champagne glass at New Year's, or the sparkle presented during a marriage proposal. We've already talked about the loveliness of candlelight, but I've forgotten about how lovely sparkles are when lighting up a room. Sparklers at the 4th of July, in your drink, or twinkling from a string of lights creates a feeling like no other. It's a special light to be sure, a mood, a little glimpse of magic. For this reason, sparkles is this week's simple pleasure. Happy Weekend!
