~ Simple Things ~

The Simple Things in life are the true beauty, hope, and love of our existence ~ the list can and will change daily, but what is important is the ability to appreciate and indulge in these moments.  The incredibly wonderful and beautiful Christina, of the magical and poetic Soul Aperture, is celebrating her birthday today, and in honor of all the glorious things which make her heart sing, I'm celebrating her with a few of the delightful moments which make my days brighter and my soul joyful ~ 

* laughs from the deepest depths of your belly

* sunshine warming your shoulders

* memorable moments made with friends

* a warm cup of smooth coffee

* the way your body absent-mindedly dances to the beat of your favorite song

* the gentle caress of your beloved's hand

* blue polish on my sweet crumb's toes

* the way a perfectly ripened peach drips down your chin

* the fresh scent of rain on a summer afternoon

* a breathtaking sunset while dining outdoors

*  closing your eyes and making a wish

*  warm sand between your toes
