spending time doing nothing with my loved ones, watching sunrise/sunset on the beach, a kiss and a hug from my hOnEy, playing card games with friends, a long talk/jamming with my best buddies

Yip I have to agree. I also love listening to the birds first thing in the morning, lying in the sun on my couch and watching the clouds float by, listening to my son running up and down the yard with his dog and laughing, lying next to my son and watching him sleep (such an angel) and I could go on forever... there are so many things that cost no money that truly bring me so much joy and peace and happiness in this life. I have found that keeping my life simple and not making it more complicated than it already is is the best and nicest thing to do... it just is simply the best way to live. To clutter my life with worries and worldly goods is not always the way to make one happy.

On my list of free things that I love are: hugs, kisses, smiles, kind words, praise, encouragement, sunsets, rain on a hot summers day, flowers, breeze, water walks, talks and music

I like your list. Mine would be: 1. Finding coupons you can actually use. 2. Getting a call from my grandmother. 3. Getting a card on Christmas from my K-5 teacher. 4. Having my dad give me a hug before I get a chance to give him one. 5. Eating a batch of grapes that contain no ruined ones. 6. Coming inside after a hot day & getting an ice cold bottle of water. 7. Talking to a guy and him actually remembering what I said.

I agree, the best things in life are very simple and you can have it anytime you feel like it. Reading a good book is the simplest pleasure I indulge in whenever I feel like it, or rather when the budget has it, LOL! But really, simple things like sleeping late in the morning are to be enjoyed for what't its worth. I would also like to include a cup of coffee, a leisurely stroll in the park with my beloved, snuggling in the couch watching tv shows. aaaahhhh... bliss!
