All the Small Things

Remember that super catchy song by Blink 182 from way back when called
"All the small things"
....and the chorus went....
Say it ain't so, I will not go
Turn the lights off, carry me home
Na, na, na, na
Na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na, na


anyone?
is this thing on?

Anyway, lately I've been trying to take time and enjoy all the small things 


SUCH AS......


A visit from my two favorite ladies in the whole wide world



A bright new iphone case for summer from Shannon

A rainy Sunday for closet organization and couch snoozing

A satisfying workout

A song with special meaning  (no, it's not Blink 182)


Text messages that put a smile on your face

vacation planning? like vacay to PA? haha.

there are lots of small things that make me smile ... like reading your blog post and singing the song to myself - even before you posted the lyrics, lol. texts from friends. texts from hubby. emails.

Katie said...

definitely have that song in my head now! I too am working on finding joy in the small things. like dunkin donuts 99 cent iced coffees in the summer or sitting on my desk looking at my yard that my husband spent lots of time working in.

Jenna said...
