Let’s travel around the country and the world to discover a glimpse of how TSLL readers live simply luxuriously! Last month when TSLL’s 2nd book was released, I invited readers to share a pic of their copy, and as you will see, each reader shares a unique moment of their very own to savor.
From moments of snuggling in with a cup of something warm while the snow fell outside, to being paired with chocolates, paired with wine and so many cups of tea, TSLL readers have great taste and uniquely beautiful lives which is a pure delight to see. From France to England to Canada to Austria, readers shared in their own way and I just want to say, Thank you. Thank you for sharing a moment with us all, sharing what you love, sharing how you cultivate contentment and sharing what you love to visit when you stop by, tune or watch the simply luxurious life destination.
As you scroll down through the many images and captions, I have included the comment shared with the image and linked to their Instagram post when possible. Some images were shared via email, and in those instances I indicated the reader by including their first name and last initial. The final reader image is paired with a detailed letter from a reader in NYC who volunteers weekly at Metropolitan Museum of Art, and I encourage you to read it. As far better than I can explain, Alec describes and embodies what living simply luxuriously is truly all about.

@thegidget33 Rainy day reading! This is the 2nd book from Shannon Ables . The books like her podcast and blog are inspirational. They are must reads/listen for anyone that wants to live their life with class, style and simplicity. @thesimplyluxuriouslife#bookstagram#kindlebooks#podcast#thesimplyluxuriouslife
~from TSLL reader Alec D.: Hi Shannon,
The photo below [to the left] might not seem like much, but it was actually taken at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City. On Sunday mornings I enjoy a solo stroll across Central Park to the museum on the Upper East Side. I spend the next three hours greeting museum guests from around the world in hopes that they fall in love with the art there just like I have.
After my volunteer shift ends, I head downstairs to grab lunch at the cafeteria. I always get the salad bar with a dinner roll, a cup of Earl Grey tea and a piece of chocolate. I enjoy my Sunday lunch it’s the same corner table – it’s tradition! Once I’ve finished my meal, I sip my tea, savor my chocolate candy, and read a good book such as Living the Simply Luxurious Life.
This might not seem glamorous to others, but it’s a routine I look forward to enjoying on Sundays. Thank you for helping me understand that a luxurious life doesn’t necessarily equate to brand labels or expensive things. It can be as simple as getting lost in a book over a lovely cup of tea!

~If you would like a copy of the book, and would prefer to pay little or no shipping, you can find the book and ebook as well on Amazon or wherever books are sold.
If you are a new TSLL reader, perhaps you are wondering, what is the difference between the two books? Great question! I have answered this very question on this page (scroll to the middle).
