Buddhism, For Me, Is...

 ...about trying to remain mindful

 ...about living in the present

 ...about not judging others

 ...about not becoming "attached" 

 ...about not hating

 ...about enjoying what nature offers

 ...about living peacefully and lovingly

Despite believing all of this, I  constantly fall back into my old habits of attachment, mindlessness, etc.  But I guess the good thing is that if it weren't for Buddhism, I wouldn't even know that those unhelpful habits are worth changing.  I guess that means I'm at least halfway to living the kind of life I want to live.
