Simple things

“Enjoy the little things, for one day you may look back and realize they were the big things.”

Christina has invited us to celebrate the simple things in life that make us happy.
These are some of mine...

* Breakfast in bed

* Arriving home right before it starts raining

* Listening to an old song on the radio and be instantly transported to that summer 

* Painting your nails pink and feeling instantly fabulous

* Reading a blog post and realized that someone has put your exact same thoughts in writing for you to understand

* Chocolate.

* An unexpected call from a friend

What simple things are making you happy? 

For a first round of my simple things, go here. See if you can spot the one that I've mentioned again today!


  1. At this present moment it is hearing Bryan Adams singing the most beautiful love song. LOL

  2. Ooooh look at your nails! Fabulous...

    A letter in the mail, not an email, a proper old fashioned letter!

    Finding money in coat pockets that you'd forgotten about.

    Waking up and realising it's not time to get up (although alas that usual means I have to get out of bed to srt out a wailing boy).

    Winter sunshine

    First cup of tea of the day, bliss!


  3. i'm off to paint my nails pink. i think it will nicely combat the grey day. thanks for that!

    happy monday!

  4. Nearly most of those you wrote there...and a smile of a strange in the street.

  5. ditto with the pink nails and the chocolate....
    Peace and quiet... I love to hear nothing but the birds singing.

  6. joyful list. unexpected calls from friends are so wonderful.


  7. love what you said.... for me, it would be free wi-fi at Borders. :)

  8. A fabulous quote to begin with!! And your pleasures are unexpected call from a friend, an old song that takes you back to a specific time, reading a blog post where someone has said exactly what you feel/think...these truly are the simple things in life that can fill us to the brim with joy!

  9. your nails are just perfect. and that chocolate... may we share.

  10. Great list! I love getting home just before the rain and reading a blog post that speaks to your thoughts. Thank you for sharing!

  11. I love your list-especially the one about reading your thoughts in someone else's writing. I like your coffee photo too!

  12. i love each and everyone of these - beautiful!!!

  13. * Listening to an old song on the radio and be instantly transported to that summer

    I love that feeling! Thanks for sharing your list with all of us.

  14. Your pink nails, wrapped around that blog mug, are very alluring!

    I especially like the one about blog posts putting thoughts into words.

  15. all of these are simply lovely!!

  16. "Reading a blog post and realized that someone has put your exact same thoughts in writing for you to understand"

    Thank you - you have read my mind!

  17. I'd love some chocolate, something a simple trip to the shop will fix.

    Lovely list.

  18. love your list, especially the one about the blog posts. besos!

  19. Hola soy tu admiradora no tan secreta y me parece que si algún día pones algo que no me encante no voy a estar disponible para comunicártelo porque de la sorpresa me habrá dado un infarto jajaja

    Lo de poner en un lugar palabras que no son tuyas pero que te reflejan perfectamente siempre me pasa con tu blog, estarás hartísima de que te lo diga, pero esque me hace mucha ilusión leerlo siempre :)

    Mil quinientos millones de besos desde la Valencia en la que a 17 de noviembre pasamos de los 25ºC!

  20. such a good feeling when you make it inside before it rains.

    i love you post, and yes you get a christmas card. :)

  21. * Listening to an old song on the radio and be instantly transported to that summer

    i love that one.

  22. i absolutely LOVE this post. What a great way to appreciate the simple things we often take for granted. Your blog continues to be such a source of inspiration for me.

    simple thing: finding a post that lifts you up at the very moment you need it most.
    thank you.

  23. very nice list !!! Read blogs make me feel happy... Have a great time ; )

  24. I feel fabulous when my toes are painted! Have a great weekend!
