Tweny simple pleasures

We often try to find pleasure in complicated things or in things that require us to spend so much.  We forget that a lot of life's pleasures are actually inexpensive or free.

Here's my list of simple pleasures.

1. reading and finishing a good book
2. snuggling in bed with a special someone (my child or my hubby)
3. waking up late on a lazy day (how I love that!)
4. watching the sky turn into different shades of orange, pink, and red on a clear afternoon
5. gazing up at a starlit sky
6. tickles!!!
7. a kiss from my child...
8. and a totally different kind of kiss from my husband
9. waking up to this

10. performing in front of an audience

11. watching and listening to my son play the violin

12. eating ice cream with someone I love
