10 of my favorites that can’t be bought
Listening to the charming chirping birds, the “caw” of a crow, the awkward “squeal” of a seagull, and the squawking of wild parrots
The luxurious first sip of a beautifully hand-crafted latte, with thick, frothy foam, and just a touch of sweetness (in the form of caramel, vanilla bean, or chocolate – in no particular order. My mood decides )
Palm tree fronds waving in the gentle, whispering breeze, or watching them whipped about by rushing, blustering wind
Snuggling every type of creature – include attempted snuggling of hummingbird moths, as pictured (you *really* have to want to see it, but it’s there cupped in my hands )
Being wrapped in the arms of one I hold dear (read: my sweet nephews + niece, my parents, my siblings, my dearest friends … and someday, my husband)
The intoxicating scent of fresh jasmine
Being greeted by the whimpering excitement of a puppy dog who just can’t contain itself!
A solid post-afternoon-in-the-sunshine nap, waking up refreshed, with plenty of the day left
Stimulating conversations, that get you thinking , and bring revelation
Getting lost in the throes of a captivating book, with a story so enrapturing, it encourages you to live a bigger life
