c'est si bon - giveaway

hello, i am kristen brett mills.
i am the girl behind the blog c'est si bon.

when sweet patricia asked me to guest blog,

patricia is a lady of kindness. generosity. and warmth.

i feel honored to call her a friend of mine.

over at c’est si bon,

i live everyday with a common goal.

i strive to find the simple joys & beauty inevery day.

whether it is the warmth that comes from your morning coffee.
or the thrill that comes from driving with thewindows down.
the sound of a familiar voice. the scent of freshcleaned laundry.
all of these little pleasures all too easily becomeordinary.
when in reality,
it is these little pleasures that make our life
so overwhelmingly swell.

in my attempt to make every day lovelier than theday before,
sometimes i tend to over-indulge myself. there. iadmit it. i do.
i over indulge myself. but i like it that way.
like tonight, I over-indulged myself in
heaping handfuls of dark chocolate chips.
and yesterday, i indulged in an extra large dietcoke,
passing up on my usual medium.
just because i wanted to.
the day before that.
treated myself to an afternoon of doing absolutelynothing.
sitting out in my backyard, laying on a blanket,sipping on lemon water.
mind you, i had a laundry list of things to getdone.

so, you see.
my little daily pleasures are so very simple.
but they are so terribly enjoyable.
and that makes me happy.
completely & blissfully happy.

the hopeful girl in me wants to believe that all ofyou
also treat yourself to the simplest of pleasuresthat life has to offer.
{i certainly cannot be the only over-indulger}
and i am making it my mission to ensure that youdo.

I couldn't find you on facebook?? i would love a chance for your lovely give-away as I do so enjoy your blog and the simple things in life... If I may, I would like to say one of the simple things I so enjoy is watching my neighbors horses from my kitchen window as they romp and frolic... welcoming the spring mornings

Simplicity and over-indulging; it makes me smile! Chocolate covered candied orange peels from a local chocolate shop have been my recent overindulgance- simply divine! Another simple pleasure - listening to our Spring birds sing their hearts out. Tomorrow I will over-indulge in that pleasure! Thank you c'est si bon for your guest post.

Excellent information and facts. Only real difficulty I was basically receiving was viewing the pics. No idea exactly why.
