simple things sunday

One of my favorite simple things is the soft glow that comes from the little white twinkle lights that I have strung up in my screened-in porch!

And now, that the weather is warming up, I am so looking forward to spending time in that porch, gazing at those little white lights. My husband strung some up on that porch for my birthday a few years ago. Those lights have since burned out. But, to my delight, my dad sent me a new strand in the mail last week! What a great surprise!

I love rocking in the antique glider covered with an amazing vintage polyester quilt. I love being still and enjoying the nice weather. Most of all, I love the peace that I get when I sit out there in that little porch. And believe me, those lights sure help set the mood!

Look at that midnight blue night sky!

And this is what happens when I try to take a picture of myself in the twinkling lights...
Pretty cool, huh?
Have a great night, everyone!
