the little things

this summer
after a day especially filled with pre-teen angst
i laid next to theresa 
 and we talked about how it was so important, especially on days that felt endlessly dark
to take the time to acknowledge the things that we were grateful for
the things that were good
the two of us vowed to start writing three such things down, before bed each night
(i think oprah once talked about doing this…)
i’ve thought a lot about that conversation over the last month
and as i go through my day
(even the darkest ones)
i try and make a mental note of the things that make me smile
the things that are good
even admist the hard
because
sometimes
 it really is the little things
that makes life living.
lately, these are mine:
1. these flowers
Photobucket
because sometimes, giving is better than receiving
2. organic raspberries
Photobucket
on sale, and eaten by the pint
3. leaves changing
Photobucket
life, keeping on…
4. breaking out the beanies
Photobucket
+ chambray and wet hair on saturday mornings = early fall perfection
5. new necklace
Photobucket
sent by a dear friend, arrived on the perfect day and is worn 24/7
6. this chalk board
Photobucket
reminding us that life is good. even if it’s also really, really sad.
so this might be my weekly feature-
a little thing or two 
that makes me smile
