    I love Saturday mornings.

    I took a leisurely stroll to the local coffee shop, and made my way to the weekly farmers market in my neighborhood. This morning I stopped by my brothers house first and we walked together, catching up with one another. The air was crisp, and the sun shining so bright. I...

    He called me outside asking me to close the

    door behind me. I have something to show you, he says. He takes my hand and walks me around the back porch. We sit and look up. The stars are so vibrant tonight. We share a glass of wine and talk about how beautiful the stars are. It was so dark and the only thing I could hear...

    A warm sunny day, a windy,

    rainy day, the aroma of fresh coffee brewing, pizza, feeling well, hearing a great song-these are examples of simple things in life that are much appreciated.

    So I lost my student ID card yesterday,

    and some kind soul found it and went to the trouble of emailing and hand-delivering it back to me!!! Have faith in humanity! :))) I am so extremely lucky that he found it.

    So a guy friend of my friend was driving my bff

    and me to the mall. It was lightly snowing out and instead of parking and us walking together he dropped us off at the door. He even had us wait for him to bring the car around when we left as well. He did the same thing when we went and picked up coffee. It was so sweet and...

    Simplicity, is my goal in my life.

    .. I am learning to declutter every aspects of it. Tie up loose ends, end things that are no longer working or productive to my growth. ( every door closed, another opens ). Open up new chapters in my life and begin my journey. Open myself, to infinite possibilities and embrace...

    Me and my little sis cuddled on the couch

    for the first time since she ran away. We had a blanket and we're watching a movie - as she was falling asleep she whispered to me "don't let me leave again I missed you too much" --- made my life seem worth it

    I leave work saturated,

    a full moon in the dead of winter, a good book and a day off, a campfire with friends and family, sitting next to you on the couch, holding your hand, the way we spent all night just talking, waling through the woods to the cottage, holding you close while you slept, watching...

    I'm so delighted of what I got this morning.

    The driver of my boss handed me a white envelope. When I opened it, a check amounting to 50,000 pesos ($ 1,142). There's a note attached to the check saying." To: MY SISTER & PARTNER, ENJOY SHOPPING... Thank you LORD for the blessing!!

    All I want at the moment is a hug.

    Usual I'm not the hugging type and it's awkward when people try to hug me. It's not that I don't like hugs, I just don't like forced hugs. I've just been feeling sick all day, I have so much on my mind and the weather has just been grey. A nice warm long hug from someone big...
