What if you spent every day looking for One Beautiful Thing?

1,461 Days!



Today, My One Beautiful Thing is four years old! It’s hard to believe it’s already/only four years since I wrote my first daily post. I had my reasons for beginning, and over the years, those reasons have broadened and deepened, but it’s still my daily joy. The blog has become second nature to me, like brushing my teeth. It’s just something I do every day. And like brushing my teeth, I imagine it would make many people unhappy if I stopped doing it… Don’t worry. I have no intention of quitting!

I thought I’d take a look back at some of my faves over the last four years, by category. It was a really fun exercise!

Other Cultures
Original Music
Cool stuff

Exotic places
Personal stories
And funny stuff!

It’s been a real privilege searching the world for beautiful things to bring to you lovelies, and I look forward to many more years of exploring daily wonders with you!


Author: Donna from MyOBT

I have committed to spending part of every day looking for at least one beautiful thing, and sharing what I find with you lovelies!
