It’s the simple things…..

I’ll admit it. I like to spoil myself.
Yes-I like going out for a wonderful meal, taking off to a faraway destination, regularly go for massages, and if a big costume ring catches my eye….you’ll more than likely see it on my finger later.

BUT, that being said…..it’s the simple things that make me feel truly spoiled.

    I find it absolutely decandent to be up before anyone else enjoying the peacefulness of the morning with my coffee.

    Cutting flowers from my garden, or if not in season….stopping off at a flower shop to inhale the fresh and alive smells inside….and maybe walking out with a small bouquet of preciousness in my hands. LOVE! Eye candy AND a heady scent!

    Going into a bookstore and browsing through the titles that catch my eye.

    Stopping off for an ice cream…….something that doesn’t happen often–to be savoured when it does.

    Going for a walk in the woods. Where else is better to reconnect with yourself and listen to your own thoughts without distractions? Shared with another these walks make for a bonding moment 🙂

    Being the first one to open up a brand new Saturday newspaper……fresh and folded up just so.
    It’s never the same once someone else has opened it up, which is something that David (the dirty rotten) likes to do if he can beat me to it because he knows it drives me CRAZY!!

    Meeting up for a coffee with the important people in my life…..and ordering a cappuccino made by a barista who makes them look so darn pretty!

Pretty to look at and if you've found a good spot-tastes yummy too!

    I once painted the main wall in a former home a dark grey. Not a bad thing for some people, but for me it went against how I usually surround myself (clothes, art, accessories). For the year it was on my wall, I felt like I lived in a dungeon. Then I decided enough was enough. After only a few passes with the roller I caught myself grinning like an idiot. I was euphoric! Such a simple thing.

Are any of these guilty pleasures? Nope. I never feel a bit of guilt! They are just the simple things in life that make me feel good doing them. To be repeated.
