There are so many things in my life that make me happy. Getting a call from my man when he's interstate, justto tell me he loves me. Sleeping in. Going to the movies. Hearing from a friend. Buying new shoes. Receiving postcards (or mail in general). Nights chilling with friends. Watching Offspring (team Patrick!) and eating late breakfasts.
There's just something decadent about a late breakfast, expecially if it's after a sleep in! Expecially if it's accompanied by a piping hot coffee. Followed by a trip to the markets and a little window shopping, it signals the perfect day.
So, this saturday morning, after you sleep in (even if it's just a little bit) make yourself a hot breakfast. Not because you need it, but, because, after a long week at work or with your kids and family, you deserve it.
