Molly’s prompt “Simple Pleasures” was so broad and had such a vast range of possibilities; I seriously doubted that I could settle on one image this week!
Last Saturday, as the OH and I sat bathed in the sunlight streaming through the floor to ceiling windows in a gorgeous restaurant, looking out onto lush, green hills, tall trees silhouetted against the cloudless horizon, it occurred to me that I was experiencing a simple pleasure right then. We had spontaneously decided to treat ourselves to lunch out, had enjoyed our meals and chatted easily, sharing laughter and thoughts. I looked down and my noticed the mark left by my favourite shade of lipstick on the while teacup. Thinking it was a cute reminder of our escape from routine, I whipped out my iPhone and took a couple of shots.
When I got home and played with the image, trying out different filters and effects I thought it would make a different sort of Sinful Sunday than anything I’ve submitted to date.
I think it fits the prompt and, furthermore, the idea of feasting on good food coupled with my cheeky lip imprint on the pure white porcelain is quite Sinful in itself! And there’s a tiny hint of arm porn from Himself in the background too… I do adore his arms.
I am really looking forward to seeing how everyone else interprets the prompt and what simple pleasures they share this week.
