It's been a couple of weeks now since Christina of Soul Aperture invited us to slow down and take note of the simple things that bring us joy. For some reason, summertime just seems to be all about simple things. Or maybe it's because summertime is steeped in so many traditions, and they remind us of simpler times. In any case, I'm continuing to be a big fan of simple things.
ironing (with a linen spray with just the slightest scent of lavender)
a plain white linen blouse
vanilla ice cream
whisper pink toenail polish
"creating" with magazine cut outs, paper, and glue
a wave from a neighbor
ice cold watermelon
cartoons and cereal on Saturday mornings (no age limit!)
car trips with "slug bug" and travel games and rushing to put your shoes back on when stopping for a potty break
I hope you take the time to enjoy a few simple things today.
