They say- Enjoy the little things. One day you may look back to find they were the big things.
My how this rings true- even at age 33.

One of the little things I enjoy, although often take for granted, is my little girl “clearing her dinner plate” from the kitchen table.

Or… a little thing like watching Britton shoot hoops with her beach ball in her bikini.

Or… getting a chuckle when she lounges on her hot pink pool float and asks, “Can you bring me some lunch now?”

Or… watching as your two totally different children dig through the freezer for the perfect totally different dessert

And then find it and ENJOY every minute of it!

Sometimes the ‘little things’ are as small and momentary as apprecating that your man cooks AND cleans dinner….

Or… watching something something other than a purple juicebox fill up your baby’s thirsty tummy

Or.. a small accomplishment like choosing not to focus on how bloated you are today, but rather how much you are digging your new camera lens

Or… getting teary eyed when your 42 pound baby moves into a big girl booster seat

Or… knowing that my sweet husband and I made two little awesome people who make our world even better than we could have dreamed

And sometimes it’s as something as simple as a new houseplant arrangement for the kitchen table. Yes, that brings me joy every time.

Or.. a small think like looking up from my desk to find a loyal little Havanese who loves me unconditionally. Even I haven’t fed her dinner and it’s 9:32 pm.

And sometimes… you know it’s a BIG thing.

Like being there when you best friend brings her first baby boy into this world.
