The little things.

I fully intended on blogging last week, but it was one of those weeks where everything hits you full force (and nothing seems to go right).  I felt a little bit like I was drowning.  A sick husband, a stomach bug while pregnant, and a cranky and coughing toddler took precedent over this space. But, we made it through. Some sleep, Gatorade, and plenty of Tylenol later and we made it to here.

There were/are other things going on that feel overwhelming in this moment, so I am trying my best to focus on the positive things, no matter how small they may be, in order to shift my focus and regain my joy.  So, I thought I would kick off the almost-giving-thanks season a little early (hope you don't mind) and just share my list of little things that are making me smile.

+ We know the gender of this little one swimming around in my belly.  I promise to share that soon!
+ I got to watch my mom finish her first half marathon this weekend. She worked so hard to get there.
+ Cupcakes while Gideon is napping. (No sharing here, folks)
+ We are moving into a house in TWO weeks. (The joy is stolen when I think about packing)
+ Crunchy leaves to step on.
+ Crockpot meals.
+ Bonfires and s'mores.  Are you a lightly-browned or burnt marshmallow lover? Browned please!
+ Hearing Gideon say "I wuv you" without any prompting.
+ Knowing I don't have to make dinner tonight.
+ Borrowing clothes from my sister. Don't have to buy new, but have something different. Win-win.
+ New hair. I got my hair colored last week and became a brunette. I love having something new without a drastic cut.

What are your little things?

  1. I used to be a browned marshmallow fan. My cousin made me a burnt one once and I politely took a bite to save face... and then intentionally burned every marshmallow I ever ate again!
