Simple Things

having a whole day to yourself

a scoop of O Wow Cow rum raisin coconut ice cream

spending time with your family

mailing a favorite book to a special blog friend

playing Scrabble

finding an extra $10 in your wallet

laughing so hard your sides hurt and your eyes water

being silly for no reason

Wishing Christina of Soul Aperture a
Very Happy Birthday!!

watching thunderheads bloom

waiting for the wind to arrive before a summer storm

getting a surprise package in the mail

being grateful

being mindful


following your bliss

walking your favorite beach

collecting shells after a Nor’easter

an early morning walk

the scent of beach roses

the latest Janet Evanovich novel

homemade brownies


a favorite song

just being alive

You have such a beautiful list.

That ice cream! I have a feeling I'll always be looking for it .. though I am guessing I'd have to travel to find it.

Christina said...

I love your list ... it never fails to amaze me how similar we all are when we make these lists ...

Hi Chris! Love these simple things; swooning w/jealously over your access to the shore to "collect shells after a Nor’easter." I visually pictured each & every thing you listed.

PS: Your blog is beautiful. I'll be stopping in often, so put some coffee on... :-)

Oh, I do love your list. My favorite is walking on the beach. I am so blessed that I just got to do that one week ago. It's hard to believe that was only a week...

one love, my friend, always!!!
