There's nothing like sitting on the back porch, licking a juicy Popsicle on a hot summer's day, or cozying up by the fire with a good book on a long afternoon in January. When we take the time to fill our lives with small, simple pleasures such as these, life becomes very rich indeed. Simple Pleasures
is a delightful compilation of recollections, quotes, and ideas about finding the richness in life, the richness that hides in the corners — easy to reach, but often neglected.
The book covers each season in detail in four sections: Home; Garden and the Great Outdoors; Body and Soul; and Family and Friends. Each section is brimming with creative, life-affirming ideas for connecting to the simple pleasures waiting in everyday life.
A lovely companion book, Simple Pleasures of the Home, adds crafts and recipes to the charming recollections, quotes, and suggestions for discovering the richness in life, this time focused on the home. For those of us homebodies who enjoy our home life, this book is a treasure trove! It focuses on the Kitchen, Bedroom, Bathroom, Living and Dining Rooms, Family Room, and Outdoor Spaces.
There are so many creative suggestions of things to do for yourself, for friends, as a couple, and as a family, that you will have an almost endless supply of meaningful ways to discover simple pleasures all over your home.
Intermixed among all the ideas in both books are short, reflective pieces that always make me smile or laugh. Using the ideas in these books is sure to enliven your life!
