SATURDAY NIGHT * THE SIMPLE LIFE













You know, happiness is where you find it. Contrary to what a lot of people think, it has very little to do with money, prestige, status, fame, power or security. Sometimes it's just the simple things in life that are most priceless and pleasurable. Peace, the warmth of the sun, a salty perfumed breeze, the beauty of the snow white sand and turquoise water. Being with people who love you, treat you with kindness and accept you for who you are. An authentic, made-from-scratch burrito with some killer queso. All of it combined with watching the sun sink into the water. Those are MY kind of cheap thrills......so happy I live where I do!

I miss Florida so much. We used to vacation in Destin or Seaside and the like almost every year. My Nephew lives in Palm Beach and my dear friend lives at Clearwater. Another friend had a cigarmakers cottage in Key West for five years....You are indeed lucky to live where you live, Anne! Beautiful photos!

Oh that looks lovely! Yes, the simple things are best! Easy to say that, but how easily we are pulled to everything else! Good to have reminders of the best things in life. Thank you!

Happy day,
Melissa

I absolutely agree with you about what makes me happy. I also like to enjoy simple things on life such as a glorious yellow moon reflecting on the sea. Love your blog!
