I’m 36, married, have two children, and live in Brooklyn, of course, like 99.567% of the world’s bloggers. I had a great childhood and a rocky adolescence. As an adult, I believe that happiness is largely–though not exclusively–a choice, and am blessed to have the First World problem of figuring out exactly what happiness means to me. These days I’m focusing on experiences instead of things, having sufficient down time both by myself and with my family and friends, learning from others, eating quality food, minimizing waste of both products and money, exercising my mind and body, and crafting the perfect cup of tea. In other words, simple pleasures. I welcome your comments. E-mail me at livlite at hotmail dot com.
