Joyful simplicities... it's just what makes you happy, what makes you content at heart, joyous, well, full of positive energy, in simplicity. You don't have to spend money, you don't have to do big things.
Today, I decided out of the blue to go back to Burford, a lovely little town in the Cotswolds, after I had been there a few days ago with a dear friend. I know Burford from previous vacations, and I'm now so lucky to live close by, so I can treat myself to a cream tea or a cappuccino and a little stroll there whenever I want.
The scented, wonderful wisteria is in full bloom, so I just had to go back with the "big camera" to capture its beauty. Loving blue, lilac, lavender and all shades of purple, you won't be surprised to know that I love this plant!
The window of this bakery is always very tempting... and I loved the hearts on the tarts.
A little stroll and several photographs later, I decided to sit down for a while and have a cream tea in quiet.
|Yes, I have added way more clotted cream and jam than I should- a joyful simplicity indeed! ;))|
And then sipping tea, I just had to pause, savor the moment among the gorgeous flowers of the patio garden, and notice all of the Beauty around me- and just be grateful for everything I'm blessed with.
