The Simple Things

I’m not sure there will ever be a time when life won’t be crazy. And that’s life. It keeps moving even when you want it to slow down. So you keep going, rolling with the punches, and enjoying the ride along the way! Learning to thrive in the nonstop crazy. Accepting the up’s and down’s and making it all work, working away at making your life what you want it to be. Living in the moment as much as you can, while trying to make your future everything you have ever dreamed of.  But in the whirlwind of life, you can end up craving just a little bit of quiet time, some peace, a hint of a slow down. And, for me, I find that in the simple things.


Really good wine.

Decadent cheese.

Dinner with some friends we don’t get to see nearly enough.

Fresh white tulips adorning each room.

Cooking a dinner to eat on the good china and with the cloth napkins.

Going out for coffee instead of making it at home.

Taking care of yourself.

Lighting candles just because.

Online shopping.

Sparing an hour out of your week for a fresh manicure or pedicure.

Taking a really long shower.

Wearing an outfit you really really love even if the spouse says it makes you look old!  🙂

Walking around the neighborhood just to get outside in the sunshine.

Cuddling on the couch.

Putting your current favorite song on repeat for hours.

Doing the little things that make you feel good because you deserve it. Taking the time to ground yourself. All of these things and so much more are my respite from the crazy in life. They keep me sane and level headed to keep up with the roller coaster.

Give me the simple things and I’m a happy girl. 

What simple things bring you peace of mind and make you happy inside?

You two twins!! Love this too. And for some reason I’m obsessed with that image of the potatoes. So pretty!

Putting your current favorite song on repeat for hours. <---- that is exactly what I've been doing!
