Enjoying the little things

by Bella

It used to be that we didn’t think we were having a good time unless we were spending money, shopping, eating out, taking a vacation, visiting a zoo, or going to the movies. These days we enjoy just being together. 

Today was a beautiful sunny, 90 degree day. We live in the inland northwest where the summers are, for us, far too short. We love the sun and heat, so we get out and enjoy it whenever possible. We took a light hike on a beautiful lakeside trail with mountain views. We stood in the refreshingly cool, clear lake and took in the peaceful beauty and the sunshine as it glistened on the water’s surface.

…And all of this was free.
