Sunday mornings....

I love Sunday mornings!
 The smell of coffee in the house ...
I want to have chocolate cakes for breakfast,
watch my living room in daylight,
read another page from the book I started during my summer vacation,
play with my children and watch them grow ...
just simple adorable little things that make me happy ....
