I’m sitting in what to me is one of the most beautiful and relaxing places in Riyadh, Acoustic Tea Lounge and Art Gallery. There’s soft acoustic music playing. There are fresh flowers on the tables. There is incredible local artwork covering the walls. It’s freezing outside–in the low 50s–and I’m so happy.
Little moments and comfortable places like this make me forget that this place I’m living in is so different than the one I come from. So I’m thinking a lot about little moments and how much they make life here not only bearable, but marvelous. And so I thought I should share that with all of you.
I’m off to enjoy a hot beverage and the company of my old friend, followed by dinner with my special someone and picking up the keys to my new place.
Remember to soak up and appreciate the little things. Notice the small moments that make you remember how wonderful life can be.
