    Even without context, I know the answer to this one! It is an expression used to say that everything is going well for somebody, to the point that he/she feels that the world, life is great. For example:

    He had a loving wife and two great children, he had recently been promoted to General Manager and had just moved to a spectacular house in the suburbs. All was well with the world!
