the pineapple

I love a pineapple.
Not only are they tasty, but they represent hospitality.
And if there's one thing I long to be, it's hospitable.

Justin bought it for me as a surprise and I love it so.

My little pineapple is really suppose to be an ornament, but after traveling around our apartment,
I think it's made it's home next to the books on our window ledge.
I love the gentle nudge... be kind, love well, show grace.

When I sell liquor, it's called bootlegging;
when my patrons serve it on Lake Shore Drive, it's called hospitality.
Al Capone

Christmas is a season for kindling the fire of hospitality in the hall,
the genial flame of charity in the heart.
Washington Irving


  1. love that al capone quote. and that pineapple looks awesome on the bookshelf.

  2. yes, hospitality! We love a good pinapple in our household too. Recently we found original tin ceiling tiles from old buildings in philadelphia sporting a pinapple, and have been framing and giving them to friends as house warming gifts. (in hopes that we will always be welcome to crash...?)

and just as hard to sleep after.
