Things That Make me Smile

This week has been an emotional one for my family and friends. I felt like every time I talked to someone there was more sad, horrible, bad news. A young boy on the street that I grew up on passed away in a car accident. He was only 19. I got a submission at work from a woman who was inspired to quilt a certain scene after her son died at 21. One of my fiancé’s friends mom passed away unexpectedly… and the list goes on. This week has reminded me how beautiful life is, and how it is so important to live every second of life to the fullest. This week reminded me to take notice of the little things, and to be grateful for them. So along those lines, here are a few of the little things that brought me happiness and peace this week.


The beautiful flower arrangement from the tablescape at my shower that I got to take home and display.

Using the gifts from the bridal shower to make yummy food.

The joy, laughs, and sometimes exasperation that the fiancé and I feel as we watch Ringo come out of his shell. :)

And a special shout out to my Mom – Happy Birthday Mom!!
