simple things




using my favourite cup for tea. watching the birds at the bird feeder. finding an oh so perfect treasure at a thrift shop. watching my baby boy fall asleep in my arms. day dreaming. going out for brunch. my red purse.

opening the mail box to find my magazine subscription, a catalogue that I ordered or better yet a hand written letter. talking to my mom on the phone. walks along the water. road trips. using a map (not map quest). bonfires.

the first sip of coffee in the morning. "stealing" a kiss from my husband. a fresh bouquet of sunflowers. patterned rain boots. cupcakes. picnics. driving with the windows down (in the summer).


The lovely Christina at Soul Aperture is hosting her 3rd simple things post and has asked all her blog friends to join in. She is graciously donating 1$ to the Haiti earthquake relief for each person who participates in her project. If you haven't yet checked out Christina's blog, I strongly encourage you to do so. It will be like a little mini vacation for your mind. Her photos, stories and day to day observations are just beautiful.

  2. Hej Johanna,

    Just stopped by to read your list. Love the picture of the boots, perfect. But Navajo saying grabbed me. So if you don't mind I am gonna add it to my collection.

    xoxo Elizabeth

  4. Hello, Johanna. I am visiting you in the wake of Christina's love. Thank you for your list ~ it was like a breath of fresh air! I enjoy thrift store treasures, too. Not only are they are good price, but they always come with a story ~ real or imagined ~ and that is cool...

  11. Oh.... OH!! Oh, goodie!! I've found another kindred spirit. First, how could anyone not fall in love with someone who has polka dot galoshes and a white floaty skirt? Then, I read your list. We are alike in so many ways. As I read I kept grinning and saying, "Me, too. Me, too." I have a lipstick red purse I adore and I am completely addicted to magazines. My heart always leaps when I find one in the mailbox. The only thing better is a real letter. Oh, I'm with you, my new friend.

    By the way, I just hung up with phone with my Mom before I sat down at the computer. It was our fifth conversation of the day.
