Ultimate sophistication

Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication. -Leonardo DaVinci

I love the simple things in life:
  • blue sky
  • fluffy white clouds
  • colors of the rainbow
  • baby smiles
  • warm hugs
  • cold puppy noses
  • the scent of the ocean
  • the feel of sand between my toes
  • and a shell found on a bench at the beach
 ... to name a few.

What are some simple things you love in life?   


  1. Me too, Stacey!!!

  2. Grandchildren hugs
    My cat, Simon
    sound of a roaring creek
    You know I could go on and on but I will stop...

  3. i love all the things you listed, each and every one of them. add staring up through tree branches, watching the dogs chase each other, the smell of honeysuckle in the back yard, sweet little doves on our power lines and the cooing they make. in fact all the things i love are free and simple.

  4. Oh those simple thing that make life worth livin'!

    The way Farm Boy's eyes light up when I walk into a room.

    The smell of apple pie in the oven.

    A cup of hot chocolate after bein' out chorin' in the cold.

    Dirt under my fingernails on warm days.

    Childern's laughter ..... Heck, I won't bore ya and go on here...there's simply not enough room. Heeehehehe!!!

    God bless ya and have an incredible day filled with life's simple pleasures. :o)

  5. So much to be said for the little things that often go unnoticed. Hope you are feeling better now.

  6. Many of the things you love are the same for me. A quite sunny afternoon with a few lazy clouds in the sky is a perfect day.

  7. Oh how I love the simple things in life--and love your list!

    mine would include............

    first cup of coffee in the mornings

    checking my friends blogs--smile

    solitude, yes, I love solitude

    the quiet--no t.v. or radio--just God and me and my thoughts

    a great book
