When life feels busy and complicated, simple pleasures offer tremendous solace.
That in mind, here are three things I’m loving lately.

Thing two: extra-dark chocolate.

Thing three: homemade thank-you’s.

The muffins were paleo, free of added sugar, and absolutely divine. The package contained delightful beeswax candles. The words inside the card touched my heart.
