a life “brimming with” books

On Friday, I talked about how pathetic it was to wish for things that I could have and I asked  what you were going to be intentional about doing.

First, I was so overwhelmed and humbled by the response that I received. Thank you so much for reading. And another thank-you to all those who took the time to post replies/comments in the comment section. I get a special thrill of happiness when I see those so keep them coming.

Well, on to the rest of the post…Allow me to share what I did this weekend.

One of the things that I have wished that I could do was spend more time in one of my favorite places, Barnes & Noble, sipping a hot beverage on a cool (or coolish), fall day. That’s what I did. I skimmed the new book, Happier at Home, by Gretchen Rubin. The first book that I read by her, The Happiness Project, is in large part responsible for this blog and quickly became one of my favorite books. Check it out here.

While there I asked whether the Starbucks had apple cider. It is a seasonal thing, usually reserved for the fall and I didn’t know if it was too early. It wasn’t! The barista recommended spiced caramel apple cider. It was sooooooo good. And such a simple pleasure that I WILL be including in my life more often.

I loved my weekend and realized even more the need to add simple pleasures, intentionally, into my life on a regular basis.
