Thank you to Ruth Ayres for the opportunity to focus on celebrations every week!

Today I celebrate the simple things in life...

Catching up with friends
Days moving at a slower pace
Visiting with family
Time spent with Bella

Netflix (now with NCIS!!)


Fresh strawberries and cherries
Iced tea
Packages in the mail
Kindness...always kindness

...and freedom.
I celebrate all of these things on Independence Day!


  1. That is one gorgeous pic of Bella. She fits right in with your gorgeous bedcovers, Michelle. I'm happy for you with your writing-see you on FB typing away! Have a great weekend, too!

  2. These are the things that bring joy to life. Simple things and a big thing...freedom!

  3. Love the picture of Bella on your bed. So very much at home. Enjoy the freedom!

  4. Such wonderful things to celebrate! I think my list would be exactly the same!
    Cute photo of Bella!

  5. I love, love, love this picture of Bella. It makes me want to run out and get a dog. Jackson used to steal our spots in the middle of the night too, and he would give us that exact same look. I've been intrigued and following your writing journey this summer on Twitter and Instagram. I can't wait to see what happens!

  6. Simple things can bring joy and pleasure and add up to happiness. I think that if more people would know how to appreciate strawberries and cherries and all other little things there would be more kindness in the world. A cucumber cheer and happy writing to you!
