I heart….

– sleeping on sheets fresh out of the laundry

– starting a good book

– the cold side of the pillow

– seeing minnie yawn

– waking up to realize i have more time to sleep

– a cool shower after a long, hot, and sticky day

– someone telling me a secret. just me.

– the first step after taking off high heels at the end of the day

– instant friendships

Life’s simplest pleasures:

– seeing the subway arrive just as you step foot onto the platform
– right turns on red
– teeny tiny converse sneakers
– a husband’s skin after a clean shave
– the sweet scent of a baby’s head
– Saturday mornings
– the first bite of a big mac
– reading old journal/diary entries
– splashing through puddles in rainboots
– soulfood
– the first sip of your morning coffee
– an unexpected bouquet of flowers
– getting between the sheets after shaving your legs ( though rarely experienced firsthand ;X )
– a string of green lights as you cruise down Broadway
– answered prayers
– getting hooked on a good book
– finding money on the street
– staying up to see the sun rise
– filling each cell of your waffles with syrup
– sweet and salty combinations
