You Don’t See What You Possess, A Beauty Calm And Clear

This week’s Sunday List was inspired by my Tell All Thursday post.  That post made me think about how easy it is to take things for granted, so I decided I should make a list of simple pleasures.

This week’s list: My Top Ten Simple Pleasures

10.) Reading

Spending hours reading a particularly engrossing book.

9.) singing-in-car_horiz

Singing my favorite songs at the top of my lungs in the car while pretending I’m performing with a really awesome band.

8.) couchsurfing

Laughing over a personal joke between friends.

4.) woman-overloading-with-shopping-bag

Wearing a new outfit for the first time.  It sounds silly, but it’s definitely a confidence booster.

3.) Girl in black leather jacket walking on black rubber boots and listening to her iPod

Going for walks alone, with just my thoughts (and, of course, music!).  This is something I haven’t done in a long time, though … I really should start doing this again.

2.) woman-at-cafe-on-patio

Writing.

1.) couple_kiss_bed-1-eswar

Waking up in the arms of someone I love.  Luckily I get to do this every morning!

What are some of your favorite simple pleasures?
