Enjoy the little things.

My mom is the most incredible woman. I could go on for hours about how much I look up to her and how truly amazing she is! I love her so much. Today I thought I would share something she taught me from a young age.

Enjoy the little things in life
because it is the little things
 that make life worth living.

She is always reminding me of this. Every time I go over to her house she would ask me if I noticed the most recently bloomed flower or she would ask if I noticed the beautiful color leaves on the mountain. Most of the things she would talk about involved the beauty of the earth, which she most definitely gained an appreciation for because of her Father. She always takes time to enjoy the little things.

Here is a small list of the little things I enjoyed this week:

-Lots of giggles from the two kiddies I nanny.

-Dave forgetting to leave the frozen chicken out to defrost before dinner, resulted in going out for dinner.

-New friends inviting us out for dinner this weekend. 

-Catching up with everyone of my siblings and both my parents this week. 

-A professor from Dave's department inviting us over for an incredible dinner last night, along with a few other students in the department. (Everyone is so nice here!)

-Making snickerdoodles late Sunday evening because my husband loves sweets as much as I do. 

-The annual General Relief Society meeting for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints is on Saturday and I am so excited to go and get a spiritual pick me up from the most amazing leaders! Learn more here.

-Giggling with my husband before bed.

-Winning my first blog giveaway!! Check it out here.

-Singing as loud as possible with my hubby to MJ

-Getting done with nannying at 530 today and knowing I don't have to leave Dave's side again until Monday morning :)

(because i love pictures and i think every post needs a photo
and his kisses are definitely one of the little things I enjoy each day!)

It really is the little things that make life worth living. Thanks mom for always teaching me this.
