It's The Simple Things In Life

A collection of all of the wonders in life, events, moments, objects, feelings and experiences that make us appreciate the 'Simple Things In Life'

Today

Today

Today is a gift. Plain and simple.

Most people take it for granted. Most people wake up, get out of bed and start their daily routine just like yesterday, and as they will tomorrow, without giving a single thought to today.

Today is special.

Handwritten Letters

Footprints in the Sand

Footprints in the Sand

There is nothing more satisfying that being the first person to imprint your footprint into a fresh patch of sand. And I bet you, like me, take a dozen or steps and then glance back to see your trail.

Coming a close second is stepping in someone else's footprints to see just how big they are compared to yours.

Coupled with listening to the waves rolling onto the shore, this surely is one of the simple things in life.
