It's the Simple Things

The Simple Things
Joining Jesslyn Amber again this week to share some of the simple pleasures in life that I really appreciate.  As I've said the last two weeks - this link-up is such a wonderful idea and really helps lift my mood to take just a few minutes and think about all of the simple things in life that bring me such joy.  Hop over to Jesslyn Amber's blog to see what everyone else is appreciating and share yours as well!!

I appreciate a fresh glass of iced tea...hold the lemon

I appreciate the unconditional love from my furbabies on a daily basis

I appreciate the simple joy I get from digging potatoes out of the garden

I appreciate my husband's dedication to teaching me the game of golf

I appreciate a cool breeze on a hot summer day

I appreciate the much needed rain we've been getting this week

I appreciate watching the steam rise off the pavement after an afternoon thunderstorm

Love this post!!! My husband finally gave up on teaching me the game of golf, haha.

Stopping by from Jenna's. Your blog is too cute!!

Stopping in from Jenna's. Your blog is great. I like your list of things to appriciate. It is good to live "aware" and "present" in your day to day. I try to live that way too. Have a great rest of the week. :)

Awww no lemon? I guess I'll forgive you on that...however I don't drink tea a lot LOL...I always get lemon in my water though. Now my husband loves some sweet tea! I need to get back on learning the game of golf...such a hard game isn't it? Love this list...it's good to stop and see that it is really the small things that matter.

Just as I'm reading this I hear a rumble of thunder...looks like another steamy, wet afternoon in the 757!

Before I got pregnant, Matt was so dedicated to teaching me golf. Now he is so dedicated to teaching Connor! Haha

Megan said...

I really like this...I need to do it. Maybe I'll join in next week! I like the steam rising off the pavement one. Sometimes I take too many things for granted.
