    The company of friends,

    good food and a drink are all it takes. sometimes just a quiet day outdoors with nature and no distractions.

    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...

    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.

    Having my 4 yr old tell me I made a delicious

    dinner. Makes my day. Even when it's a simple grilled cheese sandwich. He puts life in perspective for me and helps me see beauty and joy in everyday, simple things.

    My friend just lost her husband.

    I can't even imagine how much she is hurting right now. She said, she wished she could have told him I love you one more time.... So, when I come home tonight... I'm going to hug my kids and husband a little tighter and tell them how much I love them. You never know.. you may...

    I was at the shops purchasing a few groceries

    only an hour ago. Debating as to whether or not to purchase a shopping bag, I declined. After all, I managed to carry the items to the register with no issues. As I was walking to my car it became clear the 15 cent bag would've come in handy.. I was crossing the parking lot...

    I live simply. I wear the same old pair of

    Chuck Taylors until they disintegrate. My wheels are a 1982 Wagoneer that I can fit the most important things in the world - my kids and a few things of my late father. My idea of a vacation is somewhere where I can walk all day, looking at architectures or nature. Or both...

    Spending the weekend with 2 little ones really

    is good for the soul. They are hysterical, loving, naughty, bundles of joy. Pure joy! They make you appreciate kisses, hugs, sitting in the grass, spinning in circles to fall down, looking in awe at a grasshopper, and reading a book on zoo animals. They have recharged my...

    Every morning when my husband kisses me goodbye

    before he leaves for work, we tell each other, "Be safe and be happy. I love you and I like you." It makes me smile every time. All the simple wishes we have for one another wrapped up in a tiny phrase.

    I miss tracing the lines of your tattoos.

    I miss the feeling of your shoulder blades the way your muscles flexed when we made love. I miss your laugh, that loll on your face when I'd say " baby I'd live in a card board box if it was with you". I miss you. R.I.P my heart.

    When was the last time someone behind you at

    the grocery store gave you the extra $ (that you thought you had) to pay the cashier? People that do things like that amaze me. <3

    Like quiet. And sunsets.

    Really big trees & the outdoors overall (as long as it's not raining). Seeing parents with their toddlers. Stuff like that keeps me smiling.

    We come here time and again (yes,
