English lavender spray on my pillow every night before going to sleep
4 Hershey's Special Dark kisses for dessert at lunch every day

I'm sure there are more, but these are the first that came to mind.

a bottle of cent cinquantenaire, and a long, small ring, natural leaf cuban cigar, after a ridiculously fine meal of pastas and wine braised meats.
sharing a bottle of 1800 and a fatty during a sunshower in a mountain glen, just after you've set up camp.

a plain, thin crust pie, a bottle of cheap rose', and a hockey or baseball game, when no one else is home.
The next time someone asks what you did this past weekend, squint really hard and say, "Why, what did you hear?"

Sharing a nap with my two puppies
Fried tomatoes and toast for breakfast
Sharing good wine with friends
Pasta with fresh tomato sauce, fresh basil, virgin olive oil
Discovering a stash of old family photos while getting ready to move
Snuggling with my DH at night
Getting a phone call from a grandchild
Watching the fireflies rise from the lawn at night

Ice cream from the Brown Cow, cheesecake from the Cheesecake Factory, being able to slip my bluetooth stereo headsets on and listen to my music without being interrupted ever 10 seconds by a child or a wife who doesn't understand I CANT HEAR THEM with the headsets on (which is exactly the point of them)!!
Sitting in front of a campfire just watching the wood burn, everyone else asleep so it is quiet, looking up at the stars.
