“The happiest of people don’t necessarily have the best of everything;
They just make the most of everything they have.”

It has been my observation that life is not guaranteed: it can change or end at a moment’s notice. I want to find happiness in the simple things around me and enjoy the journey. I am an ordinary woman leading an ordinary life, always ready to enjoy the extraordinary blessings of an extraordinary God.

Here are my thoughts and ramblings on enjoying life’s simple pleasures – whether it is good food, time with family and friends, a little exploring, or the beauty of a simple moment. Taking time to smell the roses doesn’t have to be expensive, and we can be happy and enjoy life in spite of the curve balls it throws us. I hope you enjoy reading my thoughts, or perhaps trying out a new recipe, as we all travel through this journey called life.
