“Enjoy the little things, for one day you may look back and realize they were the big things.” Robert Brault
Some simple and “little” things that I’m thankful for this week:
Magazines. Thanks to a couple readers/friends (Suzie and Kerry!) I get some amazing food magazines along with my other subscriptions, and having those with me at work gives me something to do when my coworkers are all smart-phoning it up on our breaks. (Um yeah. No smart phone for me. I’ve got my mags–I know they’re so jealous! :))
The taste of sunshine on a snowy day. I created these cupcakes to sell for Easter, and of course had to do some quality control. Hello, sunshine!
Cuddles with the husband. Just nothing better than having him next to me at night.
Dressing Barbies with a a bunch of kids…and a few adults. Sometimes it’s good to forget that you’re a “grown up” and just go with the flow. Fun times! :D
Having two little ones vying for lap time with me, and bouncing them on my legs while singing “Froggy went a courtin’.” And their smiles of delight. Be still my beating heart!
Some simply amazing eats at Ciao. I usually eschew the humble margherita pizza, thinking I’d prefer something with tons of toppings, but am so glad I went with simple this time. So good! Also pictured are my salad (fabuloso), a mocha, and fried mozarella. Yumbo!
Not to mention great company!
Sister-friend time with Jaci (and her sister, Liz, who is also a special friend who thankfully doesn’t live so far away), who was visiting from TX. OK so this is not a little thing at all, this was like the highlight of my year so far, but hello. I can’t have a Thankful Thursday blog without mentioning this just cuz it isn’t little. Duh.
Also, a really big thank you to everyone who commented on my post about my Grandpa passing. People that have never commented before came out of the woodwork and your kindness means so much. Honestly, I don’t have the courage to read the comments yet but I did scan the names and was blown away by how many people I didn’t know had commented. This is not a “simple thing,” it is a big thing, but I did want to take this opportunity to thank you. I have the best readers ever. Plus, you guys have amazing taste in blogs. :D
