it's the simple things in life, really.

  • coffee in the mornings
  • checking things off my to-do list
  • warm, clean bed sheets straight out of the dryer
  • a letter in the mail
  • fresh flowers
  • reading a good book
  • getting just the right amount of sleep
  • water with lemon
  • making things with my hands
  • my new gray marker
  • taking pictures and preserving memories
  • being with the people i love most in this world
  • laughing so hard my tummy hurts
  • evenings walks
  • smoothies
  • hammocks
It's amazing how much joy can be found in the simple things in life. I think it's so important to take a moment to stop and appreciate these things. Take time to enjoy them. :)

What are some of the simple things in life that make you smile?

Here's a list of more simple pleasures to brighten your day.


  1. What a great list. And it's so true... Thanks for the reminder!

  2. Hmm. I really think we might be long-lost twins because i ADORE everything on your list.

    Hammocks though? Straight to my heart. I need one, and soon.

  3. my simple things are...
    -the butterflies i feel in my tummy when i see hubby walking towards me at the airport.
    -long hot showers to wash away the stress of the day.
    -holding a baby.
    -the moment when my phone is ringing and i realize its hubby calling from iraq.
    -seeing a soldier in uniform and thanking him or her for serving our country.
