Last night I realized I’ve been taking more pleasure out of the simple things in life. It might be that with tighter budgets, we have all been forced to enjoy what we have now instead of striving for bigger and better things.
I reflected on this last night as my husband and I sat on the back porch, enjoying the 65-degree evening, looking out on our tiny yard. Our labs, Roxy and Bam, enjoyed pure bliss in the form of a two-foot long rawhide bone for each of them. We didn’t need to go out to a fancy restaurant, a show or an excursion. We had enough adventure in our own backyard.
