Life's Simple Pleasures



Christina is hosting another "simple things" party to show January who is boss! I do not have a huge beef against January since it is my birthday month and around here we tend to celebrate for a month!

the simple things I love today...

the sun is shining brightly~sloppy granddarling kisses~daughter made chili (yum)~funky, soft socks in a variety of textures and colors~the feeling of a scarf around my neck~big hugs from my darling husband~Moe kitty jumping on the bed to let me know it is morning and time for breakfast~teacups and saucers~fragrant steam rising from a mug~hot chocolate with marshmallows~all my darlings wrapped up in a quilt~cookbooks~daisies~fresh herbs~baskets~ homemade birthday treats~just washed hair~list making~vegetable soup and cornbread~naps~phone calls and notes from friends near and far~a good feel it down to your toes laugh~hearts and stars~paper, pencils and words~hugs and kisses~every shade of green~

Life has so many simple pleasures...look around...seize the moment...enjoy the day!

Hello, Connie. I am visiting you in the wake of Christina's love. Thank you for your list and reminders of what makes life good. Our blog formats are the same (the green and yellow dots). When I clicked here, I immediately felt like I was home!

What a wonderful list of simple but perfectly lovely things! I love the old seat in the first picture. (Not quite as much as I like the little angel with bubbles though!)

Another reminder that there is beauty all around. You've got me thinking about some sweet hot chocolate.
