The Littlest of Things

Sometimes I feel like my days go by so quickly that I don’t get the chance to really focus on the things that can always quickly put a smile on my face. It doesn’t have to be anything major, really. Usually, it’s just the littlest of things that can make me appreciate my day that much more.

Like starting my day with ketchup smiley faces in my eggs.

Or eating an amazing yogurt mess with lunch…


which was made up of vanilla Chobani, pumpkin, banana slices, Love Grown Foods granola, and Quaker Oatmeal Squares.


Or getting stuck at the umpteenth red light on my way home from work, only to realize that it must have been “meant to be” because my current most favorite song came on the radio and ended just as I was pulling in my driveway.

Or being greeted with this little face as I walk in the door; Cody always has a way of effortlessly putting a smile on my face.


Or getting the link to the recipe for the pumpkin dinner rolls that my friend Andrea made for our Fall Festival this past Sunday (^^click above to get the recipe).


Or the simplicity of unwinding from my day by lighting one of my favorite fall-scented candles, snuggling into my cozies, and lounging on the couch…


with a nice glass of wine.


Oh yes, sometimes it is the littlest things, isn’t it?

I decided at about 3:00 this afternoon that coming home to a glass of wine was an absolute must. I guess I can sort of blame it on my afternoon post, but this glass actually is still not my bottle of One Hope Chardonnay.


I had this bottle of Tug Boat White in my fridge that was already opened, so that has to get finished up first. This bottle is amazing though, and is actually one of the ones that I bought this summer while out in wine country for Sarah’s Bachelorette Party.


Tonight’s dinner came together pretty easily, and was quite tasty, despite the fact that it may just be the ugliest food I’ve posted in quite a long time on here. Sorry ‘bout that one.


We prepped our sweet potatoes the same way that we did last time, which turned out just as delicious.


To keep things easy, we paired our baked sweet potatoes with some chicken sausages and a small can of beets for me. Yes, I occasionally eat vegetables out of a can…no big deal.

Now if I could just convince Jay to take care of dish duty tonight…that would definitely be another one of the little things to make my day. Smile

Question for the Evening:

What was one of the little things that made your day today?
