The Simple Things

Here are some simple things I appreciated this week! :) I seriously LOVE this link-up & you will too!


...an invite to a church retreat at the end of July (more on that later)...
...receiving an e-mail invite to start Pinterest (thanks Jesslyn!) I'm obsessed...
...sweet kisses on the forehead...
...the anticipation of a girls din din on Friday night...

...having time to give my car a "deep clean" & fill up with a full tank of gas...
...frozen mason jars in the freezer, keeps anything you drink frosty & cold...
...a sweet "have a great day!" text in the early morn...
...Sex & the City episodes on E!...
...my new devotional book...
...time spent with the Lord...
...Starbucks...
...the color turquoise...
...finding some amazing decorating/craft ideas...
...feeling happy & at peace...

...& last but not least!!! Cooking dinner last night! :) If you read my blog, you'll know I really want to start cooking so this "simple thing" made me verrrrry happy. And HEY! I didn't burn the chicken! It was VERY simple: noodles, chicken, & spinach pasta. Hey - don't judge, I'm starting easy. :)...


And for dessert - my Nannie's homemade banana bread she sent back with me!! And 2 cute little girls who thought they were getting some! Ok...maybe I gave in. :)



I hope everyone is remembering that the simple things in life are what really matter! :) :) :)

I agree with everything! Especially the mason jars :) I would love to know the title of your new devotional. I am looking to buy one and haven't found one for me yet.

Never tried putting mason jars in the freezer, but I do keep drinking glasses in there in the summer! Same idea, I'm sure.

You drank the Pinterest kool-aid?! Welcome aboard! ;)

And, your pasta dish? Looks deeeeelish!!

I love this link up too :)

Having my car cleaned with a full tank of gas is definitely a simple joy of mine too!
