I'm sure you're wondering if Alexa & I have moved to France without telling you, with all of the French popping up on the blog today. Sadly, I'm not writing this from Paris (sigh), but I was inspired by Alexa's post this morning. I don't normally do resolutions in the traditional sense, but I do like to have a saying in mind when going into the new year.
For 2014, it's "La via est fait de petits bonheurs," which translates to "life is full of little pleasures."
2013 was a big year, so when life settled down I found that I was always thinking about the next thing, always pushing myself to work harder, plan our next trip, even plan our next free weekend. This has helped me in my career and to stay connected to family and friends, but it doesn't help me stay in the moment.
So this year, I want to try to enjoy the little pleasures. The view from my morning walk with our dog (pictured above). A cold glass of wine with dinner cooked by my husband. A really good song that comes on the radio during my commute. Slipping into bed the day we put on fresh sheets. Devouring a new issue of Vogue with my Saturday coffee.
I'd love you to add to this list. What is one of life's little pleasures for you?
