simple pleasures everyday love


Work with Me





in Here


Welcome! Hi, I'm Cindy O'Krepki; writer, coach, entrepreneur, adventurista, wonderluster, epiphany addict & happiness enthusiast.

But really, what I want you to know about me is that I love love. And Simple Pleasures Everyday Love (SPEL) is especially for people who love love. I don't mean some token, distant, tolerant love that stays at arm's length, but rather a lovevalanche—an extravagant, open-hearted, unapologetic, lavish kind of love.


SPEL is a place for us—for you—to love & be loved. With each post, we practice leaning LOVEWARD (out of fear's dark reach)—by loving our own imperfect (as we say around here —flawsome) lives, simple pleasures, God & each other. I'm betting you'll fit right in.

My personal manifesto is simple, really: designing a life, home, business & blog with intention.  And when it comes to YOU & SPEL, my intention is this:

To inspire a virtual place for a like-minded, yet diverse, community (power posse of people) to communicate & connect. The richer & deeper, the better.


To elevate the ordinary. Celebrating not only the big moments of our lives, but also the small. Happiness. Beauty. Joy. It's all inside. (Come meet your tribe.)


To bring as much value to you as I can in every sentence. (Every time I put finger to keyboard I’m thinking of what might make you smile.)


To help you remember who you really are—bolstering the sense of your own magnificence. (Seems to me we all need heaping doses of encouragement in this area.)


To dazzle you with compelling photography. (You'll be God-struck with Sacred Awe.)


To remind you that there is infinitely more right with your life than there is wrong, & that your grass is (or can be) as green as any other.

So, if you're out to get more bang for your happiness buck, you're a fit! Join 8000+ other happiness insiders below. Because you deserve to love your life, truly, madly, deeply.
