The simple things in life

It seems the butterflies aren't plentiful at the moment, but this pretty little bush had several on it. I love watching the way butterflies seem to waltz in the air with each other, but I've yet to capture it on camera.

When someone asks me "what have you been up to?", I always feel a bit challenged to answer the question. I think I should tell them all the exciting wonderful new things I'm doing but my life isn't like that. It's quiet, simple, relaxed... I've designed it that way...appreciating moments of doing nothing or something simple, but meaningful. Some simple things I dearly love are:

Walks on the beach...

Blueberry pancakes...

The smell of a magnolia flower...

Snuggling in bed with my cat and a good book...

Solitude...

Family get-togethers...

Girl dates...

Girl phone time...

Cooking healthy meals...

Going to the library...

Riding my bike...

Writing, blogging, painting...

A date with my partner...

Going to the movies and eating popcorn...

Photography...

Afternoon naps...

Giving to others, service work...


What do you love? What things connect with your heart? Is your life simple or complicated?

  1. We share so much in common, Debbie. I would add puttering in my garden, throwing pots, eating ice cream and watching a movie with my honey, gazing at a night sky, walking in the woods. Sure wish we lived closer! Showers of love and blessings - Paula
