things that make me smile

Today I'm grateful for the simple things in my life. The little things that make me smile.

This little table filled with corn cobs for my blue jays. I like how the sunshine makes it so bright and cheery. It just welcomes my blue jays.


Beautiful skylines.


Starbuck's Christmas Blend.
Cella's Chocolate Covered Cherries.
A good book like, Francesca's Kitchen by Peter Pezzelli.
Musical snow globes.
Wind chimes on a windy day.

The soft, golden glow from my lamp.


Bird houses peaking out from the snow.


Seeing joy in my children's faces.
A cozy blanket to curl up with on a miserable day.
Romance. Holding hands. Laughing with my husband.

Believing in a good and wonderful day.


Tomorrow I'm going to start sharing last year's Christmas decorations! I'm so beside myself for the holiday season but knowing my husband doesn't want Christmas sneaking in on Thanksgiving, I wait until that grateful day is over before I start in with the music and decorations.

I love the scene of the snow-covered birdhouse sitting on a stump!
It is always good to count our blessings.

Lovely post that made me smile ... but I must add, I feel much like your husband regarding 'Christmas sneaking in on Thanksgiving'. Life seems to be whizzing by fast enough! Perhaps you can put on a set of earphones and enjoy Christmas music whenever. After all, you have a life too! Smiling back at you, Nancy.
