seemingly simple things



it's the simple things that make me smile inside or brings a big smile across my face. simple things like:

a bunny in the clouds
a cats soft meow
sun on my face
a gentle breeze
floating leaves

a warm embrace
a full-moon night
firelight flicker
waking up in a tent
down comforters

the smell of Earl Grey tea
a visit from my daughter
thrift store finds
sand between my toes
wind chimes

a new sweatshirt on bare skin
my daughter's laugh
the smell of fresh-baked bread
a soft warm towel after a shower
hydrangeas

the giggles of my niece and nephew
the curl of a withering leaf
opening a new book
the pop of silly putty
creativity

the smell of fresh mowed grass
the crunch of autumn leaves
shadows dancing on the wall
my moms hug
redbud blossoms

the first frothy sip of a cappuccino
a walk in the woods
children's art
finding a feather
sunsets

a hammock nap
sidewalk chalk art
sound of chopping wood
chocolate lava cake
real lavender

Christmas pine
night air
clean sheets
old family photos
snow
...
oh and so much more

All I have wanted for such a long time now is just a simple life, with simple things in it.
I'm tired of all the drama life can bring us, I just want to slow down and enjoy all of the simple things all around me.
Thank you for sharing ,
take care my friend,
Julian
