photo club {simple}

i loved this week's theme - {simple}

i consider myself a pretty low-maintenance person, and it's often the simple things and gestures that convey the most meaning to me.  i knew immediately upon seeing this theme that i wanted to photograph the simple, day-to-day things that bring me joy. 

{like this gerber daisy that the hubs surprised me with on the 8 year anniversary of our first date (also happens to be april fool's day) - not an anniversary i remembered, so it was even more meaningful that he did.  took this on one of the only (semi) sunny days we've had in the last couple of weeks.  just having the sun stream thru the windows was such a treat!}

{my favorite tea (Aveda) in my favorite mug}

{this simple flag symbolizes many things i hold dear}

{i would be a very cranky person if chocolate wasn't a part of my life.  a friend just introduced me to trader joe's dark chocolate.  YUM.}

{loved the simple beauty and softness of the fence and the blossoms - made me feel all romantical}
