A Lil' Bit of Awesome

It's the little things in life that really make a difference. I hear this all the time...and I know it to be true...but, more often than not, I take for granted the simple little things that can {and do!} truly brighten my day. Soooo...today I am making note of 10 things that bring a smile to my face.

Little things that make me happy

  1. Finding money in an old purse.
  2. Getting in the car just as my favorite song starts to play.
  3. Receiving a handwritten note in the mail.
  4. Breakfast for dinner.  
  5. Mid-day texts from the husband...especially songs of the day.
  6. Free shipping.
  7. Lily's excitement when I get home. The unconditional love of a dog is priceless.
  8. When someone "likes" or comments on this lil' bloggety-blog or any social media post.
  9. Arriving at a stop light just as it turns yellow...and accelerating to get through it. 
  10. Picking up someone at the airport.

  1. Finding money in an old purse (or jacket!) is an amazing feeling! When I was younger I would leave some in my winter coat pocket just for this purpose... until after a few years I would remember and take it out early - sort of defeated the purpose :)

  8. Oh I love to pick people up at the airport too!! And you really can't beat finding money you don't expect when you put on a coat or a bag you haven't worn in a while...it's like winning the lottery for that day ha!
