The Best Things are Experiences

The older I get the more I appreciate experiences over things.  I would rather spend a weekend at a bed and breakfast or at a mountaintop cabin than to add another designer bag to my collection.  Spending the day at an amusement or waterpark brings me more joy than a other pair of cute shoes.  Sitting on my patio looking at the moonlit sky, gives me an inner warmth and peace that the moonlight madness sale at the mall can't compete with.  Things are good, but they will become old, worn, dated, or cease to bring you the same pleasure.  Experieces, on the other hand, will remain fresh in your memory, bringing you and the ones you shared them with the same joy when recalled years later.
