Simple Pleasures

A while ago a friend told me she was working on a book and asked if I would participate. The idea was to write a book about life’s simple pleasures; a coffee table book of sorts. The book covers simple ideas for enjoying life and making the most of it. Leigh put together a wonderful collection of quotes and ideas for entertaining, relaxing, how to seize the moment and really how to make every day a little bit better.

She went to her friends and family to collect stories and anecdotes, and I was one of the lucky ones she reached out to! Knowing I’m a runner, she asked me to write about why I love to run, why it means so much to me and how it makes my life better. Of course, I was happy to help. I started this blog partially because I wanted to help others find a love for running!


She sent me a copy of the book – I love the cover art! I flipped through the pages and found this….


This morning, after starting my workout at the gym, I headed outside for a 30 minute run. After three mornings of rain and humidity, it was so great to get outside and enjoy a beautiful sunrise and cool breeze! A perfect morning for a run.

This is a great book, perfect as a gift for a friend or yourself. Perfect to read in a comfy seat with a warm cup of tea!

If you’re interested, you can find the book here.

Looks like a book that will provide me with some pleasure! Where did you take the book's pix? Great background.

The book is sitting on the ledge of the balcony on 19. Glad you like the picture and I do think you'd like the book too!

One of my simple pleasures is enjoy reading a good book. That book looks like it would be a good book to read. Thanks.
