Little List of Joys

Sometimes, it's a good thing to just delight in the small joys of life....

Breakfast for dinner

The excitement that comes before vacation (even if "vacation" is to nowhere exotic but to your hometown ) 

A day on the beach

Puppy dogs and Halloween costumes

And puppy dog kisses....they're pretty great too

A Sunday afternoon run to nowhere 

Twinkly lights....I love some twinkly lights 

Holding hands 

Late night phone calls

Friends that offer their bed when life gets creepy 

Bakery smells 

The bragging rights that come from winning a board game


Bubble Wrap 

Pumpkin carving (even though it is ridiculously hard!) Do not be fooled by the plastic tools friends....it is no joke 

A Saturday morning of sleeping-in 


A fluffy cloud day 

A no-reason-at-all cupcake

Yes, I realize I'm about 10 years older than the average Taylor Swift listener but I love her music so much....I pretty much relate to every song she writes. 

And this is one of my absolute favs.....

Ok, and maybe this one too:

What is one of your little joys?

Ohhh I love this! Aaaand tswift's new album, of course. Listening to it right now on the west coast (the joys of late college nights) and begin again played while I read this. Is it bad that I already know who most of the songs are about and their lyrics? Ha:) I always, always, always love your posts, Ashley...so fun, classy, and sparkly! :)

Brooke said...

Cute post!

I love going for a walk, and cuddles from my Puggle! =)

Have a beautiful week!


Jenna said...

I love your list! Good friends, late night phone calls, and fresh flowers never fail to brighten my day :)


Jess said...

I've missed you friend. Sorry I've been MIA on the commenting, but I think I'm finally getting back to semi-normal. My little joys are: kitty snuggles, hugs from the husband, not having back pain, texts from blog BFFs ... you know. :)

Katie said...

i love your list!! i love breakfast for dinner! and yeah for flowers!! ;) I don't even carve pumpkins because it is too hard!

Erin said...

Little joys bring out some of the BIGGEST smiles, in my opinion!! :)

Puppies always bring me joy, and winning board games is DEF high up on my list. Haha, what can I say?! I'm competitive!!

Erin said...

These are some great little joys. I need to buy Red. I think she's one of the most awkward individuals ever but I still love her songs.

Beds when life gets creepy. Yes

Katie said...

Great list Ash! That pic of you on the beach is a keeper. So cute you are. Billy and I are carving pumpkins soon and I think I'm gonna do a pom for Rocky... should be interesting haha

lil desiqua said...

I love your list! Especially the last one. I never heard that song but I really like it! It's so important to find joy in the little things!

Whitney Alison said...

This is such a great list. Hand holding is so underrated. I love a good handhold, when you lean over and your head fits in that perfect spot on his shoulder....*sigh*

Aaah! Those are probably my two faves from the new TSwift album too! Also, holding hands = guilty pleasure. I love it!

Thank you for sharing this list!!

My-cliffnotes said...

I love pup Halloween costumes.,or really outfits in general!

Michaela said...

I wrote about her song Red today! How funny. I love her, too, and can relate so much as well :) Adore your love list! Let's see...mine is: going home to visit family, a new dress, a yummy tea, new nail polish...

And WHO, my dear, are the flowers from?!

Unknown said...

I bumped into your blog via a referral and have enjoyed following it since!

Shalyn said...

I love this so much! Your list is precious just like you. I have been listening to Taylor ALL day long. Love it. I feel like a teenager (SO WHAT WORLD!) and it's fun. I wish you could be here with me to dance and sing. You should totally road trip to Boston with me, just saying. I'm going to make it a point to come to Atlanta so I can see you soon. I miss you. And I love you! MUAH!

Whitney said...

any girl who says theyve never been able to relate to "i almost do" or "all too well" is a LIAR!!! im obsessed with Red, can't stop listening to it.

ps- im jealous of your puppy kisses. i get to go home to see mine this weekend :)

Alex said...
