my simple pleasures

Several other bloggers are sharing theirs, so I figured I would too.

Here are a few simple pleasures of mine

....funny how even thinking about them makes me relax a bit....

1- a good cup of coffee, especially if you're on a porch overlooking mountains

2- a long chat with an old friend

3- hearing children laugh

4- playing with my nephews & niece

5- the sound of a fire crackling in the fireplace

6- being in love

7- being at the beach, soaking up the sun, listening to the waves

8- beautiful flowers

9- snuggling with Gus (his ears are like Egyptian cotton!)

10- being with family

11- the sound of rain

12- finding the perfect greeting card for someone you love (strange perhaps, but i LOVE it)

13- having a glass of wine with my parents & talking for hours

(and because I can't stop at 13....)

14- being with my girlfriends

.......just to name a few.


  1. I'm TOTALLY with you on the greeting card thing. I found a great post-birth/new mommy card once that said, "How's Your Va Jay Jay?" in huge letters across the front. All I could think of was my friend Katie :)

  2. I did mine at They have backgrounds, stickers, etc., and you can upload your pictures. You can buy different things, but I'm a total El Cheapo and just stuck to the free stuff :)

    I also made an actual scrapbook on there for part of Boo's Christmas present, and it turned out REALLY well!

  3. ahh, i love all of those things too :) great post!


I would love to hear from you ... Don't be shy :)
