The Simple life

"Happiness consists not in having much, but in being content with little."
-Marguerite Gardiner, Countess of Blessington.

I came across this quote today and it really hit me. It helps to remind me to be grateful for what I have in life.
I don't live in a mansion, I don't have expensive jewels or wear designer clothes.
However, I have a loving family, I have a roof over my head, I have food in my pantry.
It may not be a glamorous life, but it's my life and I'm content.


  1. That's awesome - so inspiring and so true. You're probably happier now than you ever could be with all those *things*....

  2. Sometimes we just need a reminder of what is really important to us.

  3. I love this quote! Thanks for posting on my blog a week or so ago... been behind lately! I enjoyed reading thru your blogs, and can't wait to try your latest crock pot recipe (the crockpot is my favorite kitchen appliance)!

    Congrats on the new family member soon to be as well!
