Life's Simple Pleasures

So, lately I've been a little overwhelmed, stressed, and overbooked!  Last night I took some time to myself, had a glass of wine and thought about all the little things that make me happy.  I know it's a little cheesy, but sometimes I think it's nice to remember all of life's little moments that make us smile.  So, here's my list of the little things that make me smile, in no real order...
  • a clean kitchen and the sound of the dishwasher running
  • a glass of wine on the back deck, soul music playing on the outdoor speakers and the kids playing together
  • cool crisp mornings on the front porch, before the kids wake up, with coffee, the newspaper and Chad
  • Saturday mornings at Carson's soccer games
  • Sunday night dinner at my parent's house
  • adoration of the blessed sacrament
  • clean laundry that is folded AND put away
  • lunches made and clothes set out the night before school
  • hearing Carson and Kennedy playing nicely together
  • Wednesday mornings (My kindergarten class starts their day in P.E., so I get an early morning break!)
  • all school mass
  • dinner together as a family
  • a clean car with a full tank of gas
  • lunch with my family after mass
  • reading a good book
  • an afternoon nap
  • holiday decorations
  • hearing Carson and Kennedy talk excitedly about their new new baby brother or sister that we are planning to adopt
  • colorful leaves in the fall
  • going to bed early
  • 80's music
  • fresh flowers
  • being prepared
What are your simple pleasures??
