Simple Pleasures

Saturday, September 01, 2012

Today is one of those magical days where even though nothing extraordinary is happening, it feels perfect. Today is one of those days where you feel happy from the tips of your toes to the top of your nose.

My honey and I laid in bed this morning talking and giggling. It felt like when you first meet and everything your love says is the wittiest thing that you have ever heard. I made breakfast for all of the kids and went for my run at the park. My runs are always enjoyable but sometimes I push through for fitness sake. Today was one of those days where my run brought me such an amazing rush of peace and euphoria. The sun glistened with the perfect brightness, the breeze seemed to wash over you at the moment you needed it most. The flowers smelled stronger...My favorite songs on my MP3 player delighted me one after another. Today is one of those days where you feel alive, blessed, and happy.

There is no particular reason. Today started as many of my days do but I am going to basque in the splendid simplicity of it. Today I am going to smile and enjoy my family. It is a great day to be alive!

Here are 2 pictures I stopped to take today

When I reached the last quarter mile marker on my 6 mile trek the last song I would hear on my run came on. You will never guess what it was. "What a Wonderful World" by Louis Armstrong

What are the odds? ;)
Just try to tell me today is not perfect :)

(here is a link to the version of the song on my MP3 player. I hope it makes you smile too!)
