The Little Things

An afternoon music lesson with my friend, Melody.  She is so talented.
Sore finger-tips from working on my guitar playing skills.
Imagining that one day I'll be able to play the guitar seamlessly.
The 'I Love You' note that my sister sent in the mail that is now on my fridge.
Talking decor with my interior-expert mother.
Thrifting.
Husband bringing home unexpected salvaged treasures--pictures soon! 
A new, LARGE inspiration board--
I've got to get this task of decorating laid out and organized!
Noticing that of all the places in the entire house my children could be, they'd choose to be touching knees on the floor, playing together. 
I pray they are always this close and loving toward each other.
My ever-growing list of inspirational blogs.
Anticipating a reunion and a birthday celebration with friends this weekend.

You?  What are the little things that are on your mind?

This was so lovely! Oh yes you children can stay just that close. I had a son and 2 1/2 yrs later I had a girl. They were so close. My son was more than a protective older brother. He always took care of her from the day we brought her home. They played and never fought. If my son slept away from home my daughter would sleep in his bed she missed him so. Today they are 25 and 23 and still best friends. In fact my daughter married one of her brothers best friends and collage room mate. : )

Yes that would be my little (big) thing as well!! That and THIN MINT GIRL SCOUT COOKIES!!!!

These are so great! My new goal is to learn to play an instrument with strings (I'm thinking the ukelele...). Good luck! (PS Your blog is gorgeous)

“You must write every single day of your life... You must lurk in libraries and climb the stacks like ladders to sniff books like perfumes and wear books like hats upon your crazy heads... may you be in love every day for the next 20,000 days. And out of that love, remake a world.” ― Ray Bradbury
