the simple things. {a little list.}

Friday, February 5, 2010

Thanks to the lovely Kimbirdy over at Fill Your Well, I recently discovered that Soul Aperture is (or was?) donating $1 to Doctors Without Borders for every blogger who posts a simple things list. How simple (and amazing) is that? To be perfectly honest, I'm not even sure this $1 offer still stands since I'm a little late to the game, but more than anything this reminds me of the great things we as bloggers can do as a community.

the. simple. things.
{according to me}

- smooching the chubby cheeks of my nephews
- singing my heart out in the car
- warm summer rain
- freshly painted toes
- new dresses on sunny days
- conversations with my mom about life over wine
- making children laugh
- kindness
- Saturday naps
- making new friends and fiercly loving the old
- reading curled up in bed
- music, music and more music
- love letters
- sushi
- travel
- waking up every morning next to the handsome feller I love
- seeing compassion in strangers
- writing
- good hair days
- almond butter
- standing up for what I believe in
- being my father's daughter - even in his absence - always

There you have it, friends. My little simple things.

Remember that you can buy this amazing album for only $7.99 and all of the proceeds will go to helping Haiti. I have it and in my opinion, it's more than worth it simply for this gorgeous cover of this breathtaking song.

Happy, happy weekend!
