    I love the feeling of coming home

    after a shopping trip with all of the new things I bought. It's worth it to spend a little on the things that make you happy. Just wearing that new shirt out in public or running in those new tennis shoes makes me feel more confident. Life is too short not to enjoy the little...

    last night I was feeling down

    and I met her, she asked me why I looked so down and I bought her a shot, we danced till the bar closed and she left with her friends. Thank you mystery girl. Champagne out of your shoe was still a good idea since you did not wear them home.

    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!!

    Autumn...the smell of the leaves,

    a crackling fire pit a mug of spiced cider and a smile form the perfect summer love affair. Hope college is everything you wanted.

    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...

    I don't need diamonds,

    money, materialistic items. I don't need wining and dining or expensive trips. All I need is good company and the feeling of love.

    I think the best moments in life are not

    planned. When I close my eyes, feel the wind play with my hair, and forget about all the worries.. Or when I sit on the rooftop and look at the stars, or the beautiful sunset. It's just so magical. I'm not sure if it counts as simple, but at least it makes me happy.

    I took time to pause and look up at the sky. It was a sunny and pleasant day with just pure blue above me. Such wonder in the natural beauty of the sky. It was an Autumn sky, this beautiful blue sky reminded me that my favorite season is near, the Fall. I took a deep breath in...

    I am vacationing at the beach,

    a very familiar place. I come here often with my family. Our daily ritual is to brew a pot of coffee, pour into two clear glass mugs; mine is black, his with a little cream and sugar. We head out the door and make our walk to the beach - not far, a few houses away. I love the...

    Like the seeds of a dandelion flowing through the air like her hair on a breezy day. Or the birds tweeting their morning song. Or how even though sand is warm and gritty, I love when it's close to me. That's really how things are in life though. Because even if your lost in the...
