Simple Things

the resistance of the french press as i slowly push the top down

taking off my shoes and socks after a long run

making the shower water a little too hot

freshly-organized kitchen cabinets

finding the perfect spot for a new houseplant

the incredible joy on my baby's face when he sees me

hearing 'good morning, mama' from charlotte after her nap (even if it's 4pm)

finding packages on my doorstep

hearing an uninhibited laugh from william

the first magical sip of coffee for the day

the last savasanna of the day

a goodbye kiss as brad leaves for work

packing for an adventure

nursing theodore in bed and watching him fall back to sleep in my arms
