What are the little things that make you happy? I was thinking today about how it really is the little things in life that tip the scales from day to day. The little things can get under our skin and make us really unhappy, grumpy, stressed, or angry. And it's the little things that can really make our hearts sing. In honor of Valentine's Day, I'm feeling the love. Here are a few little things I'm happy and grateful for today.
The hollow sound of ice cracking when you step on it. Preferably a big thick piece.
Theo kissing me on the leg when I get home and saying he missed me.
Coco showing me how she turns out her legs while she points her toes for ballet "like I'm showing you a sticker on my heel, mama." How true!
Watching TV with J and talking and not worrying about what we miss.
Having a lovely, laughter-filled coffee break with the girls at work.
The nice feeling of washing my face and applying all my serums, lotions and creams before bed. (Seriously, this is my new me-time;)
Red wine by the fire.
Bringing Theo and Coco into the big bed and snuggling my little cuties in the morning before we get up for the day.
Slyly watching Theo and Coco in the rearview mirror as they sing along with the radio in the car.
Dry shampoo. There is still no greater miracle.
Watching people eat (and rave about!) the jam I made last summer.
Telling J about my day and hearing about his.
I hope you're remembering the little things today. Happy Valentine's Day! Sleep well tonight. xo
