What are your simple pleasures in life?

Here are some of mine, in no particular order:

Laughter

Birds (yes, yes, completely unsurprising coming from a #birdnerd) — watching them, hearing them sing, studying them…

Butterflies

Flowers (in gardens, in a field, in a vase — doesn’t matter)

Hot chocolate

More laughter

Dad jokes

Reading ‘Peanuts’ strips

Sunlight on the ocean — dancing diamonds!

Moonlight on the ocean — my favourite sight in the world, I think.

Music

Sleeping in

Movies

Strawberries…

What are your simple pleasures? When was the last time you noticed them?

Pause. Breathe. Take notice. Simple pleasures are everywhere.

Off you go… enjoy them.
