Simple pleasures

Ever since having children, I realized how much I took for granted the simple pleasures I had in life pre-kids. I’m not talking about anything extravagant like the purchase or a new car or a winter vacation to Florida, I talking basic enjoyment such as watching an entire movie in complete silence. I’m talking of an uninterrupted Sunday afternoon nap. I’m talking about a warm meal on a cold and rainy evening. I’m talking about the feeling of the warmth of the sun hitting my face on a summer’s day, a ride in the country with the windows down, the smell of wildflowers, simple and beautiful pleasures of life.
