It's the Little Things

There are days, or maybe only hours, when my life is that of a rock star. Traveling, people on TV, parties, champagne, comps...and then there are the other, more realistic hours. Not so glam.

That's when the little luxuries matter. Bitty treats to sneak into an otherwise ordinary day.

Fresh flowers. Just for you. No reason needed.

Open that treasured bottle of wine. Maybe there is a reason this time, but it doesn't have to be a good one.

Take a walk when you should be doing something more important. Go someplace peaceful.

And then take a nap when you get home.

Buy that ridiculously expensive candle and don't be shy to use it. It will last.

After a long day, stop for a treat. Bring an extra one back for someone you like.

Read the fun book instead of the one translated from 18th century Russian.

Say I love you to those who need to hear it more than you think you should. Wear your heart on your sleeve.

Sorry, should have given a sap warning on that one.

Little luxuries make a big impact. Treat yourself.
