Simple Pleasures

Watching tea brew in the sunlight…and then sipping it, obviously.


When it looks like Maizey is smiling at me

When my brothers and sisters (in-law) send me pictures of the kiddos whom I miss dearlyapril173

A bed that’s made. Even if Maizey thinks I made it for her to accessorize with her presence.april172

Any room with really great light. Like this one at Dioli’s.april174

What simple pleasures make you happy?

Do you make your bed? I’ve always been terrible at making the bed. But I’ve done it for 2 weeks so I’m hoping it’s a habit now. 😉

    love your simple pleasures! some of mine recently… tulips blooming, walks with our pups in the beautiful weather, a delicious bowl of oatmeal, good talks with my husband, and friends that always know what to say to make you feel better.

    We just bought new bedding and got a fancy headboard as a housewarming gift, so I’m trying to be better about making the bed, too! I do like the feeling of having it done when I leave the house – and it motivates me to keep the bedroom picked up.

  • Miriam @ Bellaspire

    Maizey!! Haha, that made me laugh out loud!!

  • Aubrey

    Maizey looks precious! My dog unmakes my whole bed, and he’s only 7 lbs.

  • Liz @ IHeartVegetables

    Aw, how fun! My simple pleasure of the day was realizing how relaxing it can be to just walk the city alone!

  • Trisha

    I’m right there with you on all of these…especially the bed making! I too, have always been horrible about it (even when my mom threatened that spiders would crawl in & wait for me to go to bed if I didn’t make it every day) but have really been making an effort to make it as of late. It’s amazing how much more relaxing it feels to get into a made bed!

  • Jamie @ Don't Forget the Cinnamon

    Sunshine coming through my open windows! They were weatherproofed and permanently shaded all winter.

  • Amber @ Busy, Bold, Blessed

    I love doggie smiles! My dog definitely smiles at me too.

    My simple pleasures: sunrise/sunsets, walking my dog through the park in awesome weather, flowers blooming, the smell of our lilac bushes… loving spring!

  • Claire @ Live and Love to Eat

    Having my husband back after he was out of town for only 24 hours. 🙂

  • Jen @nutcaseinpoint

    I make the bed- then the dog messes it up. It’s a vicious cycle.

    Simple pleasures: baking, coming up with new workouts, walking the dog 🙂

  • Katie

    Gah, cutest picture of Maizey smiling! And I love having a made bed, too. I probably do it 6 out of 7 days a week.

  • Joy

    I do make my bed…
    A simple pleasure that makes my heart sing is the poodle carrying his stuffy around

  • Holly W

    I’m also horrible about making the bed. The few times I actually do, it makes SUCH a big difference. I wish it was more of a habit for me, but I just haven’t gotten there quite yet.
    Love your simple pleasures 🙂

  • Ashley @ Sweat for Sweets

    This is awesome! A nice reminder of how important the little things are 🙂 And yes, I try to ALWAYS make the bed. It makes everything look so much more put together & tidy!
