simple

Loving:
-Balloon heart garland.  Inspired by birds and trees after seeing hers.  Made out of card stock, hung on twine, a little tippy so I added twine to the bottom.  Floating heart balloons.  
-Flour on my jeans.
-Strong coffee.
-The post office.
-All of your wonderful comments and suggestions on my honeycomb cardigan.  Thank you so much.
I am sure there are a few simple things that you are loving.
Have a great one.

I love flour on my jeans too! That's so funny. It just makes me feel like I've done something good, you know?

Definitely...reading a good book on a breezy, overcast day at the beach in shorts and a sweatshirt. Toes in the sand, skin kissed by the salty, ocean air...simply delicious.

Float sweet dreams this coming Heart day!
