the Little things

“Enjoy the little things, for one day you may look back and realize they were the big things.” Robert Brault

Some of the little things from our week.

-Cooler mornings and walks with the girls.
-The swishing sound of Mia's diaper as she learns to crawl around the house.
-Asher walking out the door with his backpack on. He looks so big.
-My cute little sister and her 6 month baby belly.
-New cherry chap stick.  
-This little guy sitting on my mantle.
-Giant ice cream cones at Gigi and Pas' house. Piled way too high with cool whip and sprinkles.


-Late night texting with my sister that results in a lot of "LOL" even though I hate that term, sometimes it's all you can really say.
-Red Steve Madden heels.
-Brandons hugs. They're just good.
-Pumpkin Spice Latte samples from Starbucks
-A pair of old running shoes that form to my feet and make me want to run.
-Mia's first time on a swing with huge smiles and laughs.


-My 55 yr old dad planking on the top of a kids playground.
-Bella girl getting her first hair cut and daddy tearing up as he watched.
-Chikfila kids cones and oreo shakes. Oh and waffle fries too
-Dinners all together, even the messy spaghetti ones.
-Bubble bath giggles.
-Night time begging that never fails to end in a bit more snuggling.
-Sleepy time tea at the end of a day. {Make it a double}
-The sounds of a quiet house filled with my sweet sleeping lovies. Big and small.
