  4. Pilar, your list of 'simple things in life' is wonderful. I like many of these as well. And in fact, it's raining right now as I'm looking out the window. :) Those cinnamon rolls look delicious, and homemade icing, YUMMY! It's nice to hear that you still send cards in the mail. I love sending and receiving cards too. I can smell your candle from here.

    Lovely post, Pilar.


    1. Thanks! I love making cinnamon rolls even though I haven't made any in a few months lol. I love sending and receiving cards! We live in such a technological world it's nice to send and receive things that are handwritten! I hope you're enjoying watching the rain!

  5. Love this! Every one of these is a simple thing that makes me happy too!

  6. I miss long phone conversations. I don't think I do that anymore because of texting. But I miss it.

    1. I love texting too, but sometimes I rather just have a phone conversation lol

  7. It's shocking how we often overlook the simplest things in life. You compiled a great list here, Pilar!
