{The Little Things}

Sometimes I have to remind myself to be thankful for the little things in life. It is easy (especially in this country) to quickly forget to count our blessings when we are constantly trying to keep up with a fast-paced culture. There is always more we want, expect and feel that we need. This week, I am just happy to reflect on having a nice weekend away at the beach. Thankfully, there was plenty of sunbathing, eating, laughing and R&R! Just what my little heart desired...

Watching the sun set over the bay...

I certainly can appreciate spontaneity and acknowledge that "getting away" every now & then is something I treasure. Reason or no reason, it's nice to make an effort to spend time away...at least while young and with less responsibilities! However, it's also good to be reminded how simple things, such as sitting on the back porch with a glass of vino, can be just as lovely. It's not always about the big things, but the little things that make life a bit sweeter...

This Week's Little Things

My daily cups of tea

Surprises! Especially handmade cards!

The perfect gift to hold other little treasures!!!

Natural snack bars!

Looking forward to Fall collections...

Getting a haircut...to go shorter or not to go shorter?

And last but not least...

Who doesn't want to come home to this face?!

La vita é bella
