The little things?


"The little things?
The little moments?
They aren't little".
                   Jon Kabat-Zinn


Just a few of my "little" moments lately ... 


playing house ...


walking on the beach ...


leisurely kayaking through the Ventura Keys ...


playing with Lulu ...


finding an errant buoy ...


snapping a photo of a neighbor's house...


riding the train to San Clemente


to coordinate my 50th high school reunion at a beautiful location ...

  11. Pretty photos! Love their Bouganvilla! I love the vintage postcard of the rabbit. I use to love to go on a day trip to San Clemente when I lived in southern California. I've lived in Northern and Southern, but I prefer the south. Congratulations on your 50th reunion too! xoxo Su

  27. Your pictures always make me smile and cheer up. How can you feel anything but happiness where you live? Not to say I dislike where I live, I actually like cold weather and snow---but every picture you post, indoors or out shouts HAPPY!
