Beautiful Things by Ruth Cameron Dawkins

Ruth  Caneron Dawkins blogs over at Dorkymum about parenting, politics, photography and ‘whatever else she fancies.’ She is a gorgeous and  thought provoking writer. We asked her to share her beautiful things with us.

Here’s what she had to say……

The most beautiful day I ever had… my wedding day, back in 2007. A beautiful autumn day, the joy of being surrounded by friends and family, lots of champagne, laughter and dancing, and a heart full of love for my husband.

The most beautiful thing I have ever seen… late evening sun on the Arctic ice cap.

The most beautiful thing I have ever owned…a simple jade necklace that my husband bought for me at a market in Singapore, just a few months after we met each other. I wear it every day.

The most beautiful song I have ever heard… Here Comes the Sun by the Beatles. A friend played it on the guitar at my son’s Christening so it always makes me smile.

The most beautiful person I know is… My five year old son, who has the kindest heart of anyone I know.

The most beautiful thing about me is… my loyalty to those I love.

Thank you Ruth for sharing your beautiful things with us. You can find Ruth over at her lovely blog or on twitter

    I’m struggling to fine tune my answers to these questions. It is hard to narrow it down to one thing!

      It’s so hard isn’t it Emma! Don’t overthink it though – I went with the first thing that came to mind for every answer. Look forward to reading yours x

      Awww, thanks lovely. T seems to have turned into a bit of a Beatles fan recently, not sure how much that had to do with it! x
