A Breath of Fresh Mint, Warm Loaves N Hot Rolls

Hapiness is...

Going inside a bakery and inhaling that delicious newly fresh-from-the-oven baked-goods aroma. I always say that bread and cakes are not just feast to the stomach but also feast to the eye as well as for the nose. With or without icing, a cake can always put a smile on a girl's face.

An another thing. Surrounded with so much delicious food always give me such a warm and fuzzy feeling inside. It's a feeling of abundance. It's like God's way of saying: "You are fine. I'm taking a good care of you. Look at all the bounty I've provided you through your fellow human. Just keep doing the work you have been doing, and I will take care of the rest. You are not in need of anything."

Sometimes I think it's silly. Sometimes, I think it's not.

I went to Bread Talk today and got a loaf of coffee bun for afternoon snack in the office, a cup of tiramisu for my husband, and two pieces of tuna croissants for our breakfast tomorrow. I don't cook, but no one can accuse me for not taking a good care of my husband, haha!

Do you think it's a pathetic thing or a great thing that such simple pleasure can give one such joy?

I love the mint and your bag is really cute! I also love the smell of fresh baked goods! I think it's a great thing to see pleasure in simple things! Personally, I think if one cannot then they're going to have a hard time with life =P

The bf and I often have arguments and disagreements on vacations a lot too. I think it's because of all the stress somethings so you're right, a relaxing honeymoon is probably a better idea, especially after all that wedding stress! I hope you get to go to Paris soon!

Taking pleasure in small things is one of the sweetest parts of life!

Both looks are very polished, but I think I like the dress with the sweater best. And, yes, bringing home goodies from the bakery counts as taking good care of your husband.

Simple pleasures - like fresh baked goodies or a great outfit - should definitely be enjoyed and never taken for granted.
