When was the last time you looked around and appreciated the beauties of the world? Often, the small things in life go unnoticed because we are too wrapped up in the daily dramas. There are important things in life to be concerned about, but sometimes it's good to just take life one breath at a time. I decided to make a list to remember the good surrounding us, because Life truly is Lovely.

This coffee brand is USDA organic. Newman's Own Keurig coffee flavors are all organic. They have French Roast, Decaf, and a Special Blend. I'm in a committed relationship with the French Roast flavor. The smell alone from dispensing 1 cup of coffee sets a whole cafe jazz vibe.
