I’m a simple girl. You might argue the “girl” part of that, but I am easy to please, for the most part, and try to find beauty in every day and appreciate every moment. But, of course, some days are better than others. I mostly enjoy my life. I have family nearby that I love, work that I enjoy, spend most days with my man, and travel a lot. Then, there are days like today. What does my perfect day look like?
Friday evening date night with my man that included a little history (Hank Aaron museum), a little baseball (Mobile Bay Bears vs Mississippi Braves), an excellent (and seldom enjoyed) hamburger, a little wine, and an early evening. An early morning run in beautiful, historic old Mobile with my man running beside me. Weather that makes you feel like you could run for days, with just the barest hint of fall in the air. A surprise encounter with a photographer/running friend I met at Texas School who lives in Mobile and was out for her early morning run. Running clothes that look like I’ve fallen into the pool at the end of a seven miler. (I do like to sweat!) A delicious breakfast followed by coffee from Starbucks to accompany us as we travel home. Riding with the top down in my sweet little pony car and Aaron Neville’s silky voice at full volume. An afternoon stretched ahead of me with nothing to do but write a little, watch a few Big Bang reruns, and read while the ballgames play on our TV. Simple things. Things that make me smile.
I hope your day is filled with simple pleasures, too.
