The simple things in life

I'm someone who's always out walking, exploring, or visiting cafes, shops, markets or galleries. Even with a baby, I rarely just sit at home. However, yesterday morning I didn't feel like going out but I didn't want to stay indoors. Instead, I put a deck chair in a sunny spot under a pretty tree and sat in the garden while my baby girl slept in the stroller next to me. It was the perfect opportunity to read for a while and enjoy the sounds and sights of the garden. 
I'd highly recommend just slowing down occasionally and doing this. Sit in your backyard, take a picnic rug to a park or a towel to the beach, or read in a cafe or bookshop.
