It's often said that the simple things in life are the most precious. What small pleasures make you the happiest?
running as fast as i can and feeling the night's cold air on my bare skin
when someone whispers in my ear
hearing my own heartbeat
movie nights in lizz's basement: junk food, juice boxes, favorite people all under one comforter, limbs everywhere
wiping my sweaty palms on my own legs
the feeling i get when i write something good
when people tell me they like what i'm wearing
winking at people
throwing my head back when i laugh
touching my legs when i'm wearing tights
holding hands with my best friends
kissing people's cheeks and receiving a kiss back
birthday cards, christmas cards, valentine day cards.
when people say "that's so you", "that's so celina"
mcflurries in the middle of the night
boxing day with danica
when i break a popsicle in two perfectly
nights when i live out my youth: pulling shenanigans, screaming in the streets, staying out late
waking up on sunday mornings and reading
breaking in new sneakers
