chocolate mint

Sometimes shining is just about having fun.

It's nothing serious

or heady

or life altering

or intense.

It's simple stuff like:

a warm, sunny day after a long and dreary winter,

opening your mailbox to find a surprise,

or a row of Thin Mint Girl Scout Cookies straight out of the freezer.

According to one of my favorite websites,, today is National Chocolate Mint Day.

I'm not sure how

or why

or who exactly said so,

but I'm willing to play along because I believe in the power of savoring life's simple pleasures.

And because chocolate mint is my all-time favorite dessert combination.

What simple pleasure do you think shines?
