Though we travel the world over to find the beautiful,
we must carry it with us or we find it not ...
I love bumping into inspiration! Last week, my daughter and I were out running errands and decided to take a little 'simple pleasures detour' ... We ended up at a little gift shop called "Lemon Grass" and we both enjoyed the adventure tremendously!

I am always drawn to the little nooks and corners in the shops where they tend to display their card lines. I could spend hours reading greeting cards and checking out the new, innovative ideas and designs of each card. It's my simple pleasure! I was so inspired by what I saw that I went right home and started designing my own line! :)

I have an appointment next week with a lady who may want to give them a little space in her store. Exciting huh?! I think so ...

Here are a few more of my simple pleasures -
Listening to Frank Sinatra, eating cottage cheese and peaches (with a little salt & pepper), laying awake at night and thinking, writing, reading a good biography, laughing with my kids, munching on salsa and touch of lime tortilla chips, sipping down a French vanilla Italian soda and dancing in the front room, holding hands with my husband, driving with the windows down, singing, and walking by the river.

Its your turn - what are your simple pleasures?!

Hum...simple pleasures: laying in bed in the morning with Evan and Addy, listening to piano music, laughing with Jake, eating pudding with whipped cream on top, going for a walk all by myself, making meals for my family, enjoying really quiet moments when it's just me and my thoughts....ahhh, I could go on and on. Life really is made up for simple pleasures.

How exciting that you may be getting your own little nook in a store. Best of luck with it.
My simple pleasures...Leftover pizza for breakfast, watching old movies, a walk through the woods with my husband and daughter, twenty minutes to myself to working on a craft project.

some of my simple pleasures...a cool wispy autumn wind, a big chocolate lushious brownie with icing, the little juke boxes on the tables of diners, fresh towels out of the dryer, popping bubble wrap, and blogging! great post!
