Little Things

Do you absolutely adore the little things in life, like me? I am so thankful for the little things - it's what makes me so happy!

I'll be walking through the store, pass a beautiful flower and take a smell. I know that sounds incredibly cheesy, but it's true. I love when people (ahem, V if you're reading this... ;) ) leave me random notes (just kidding, V knows me well enough by now to know that) or even pick a wildflower and give it to me. One of my little cousins does that for me all of the time - melts my heart.

Monday night, at work, there was a young man in there that is a pretty consistent member. He is always very polite, nice, and social. Always makes a point to say hello to whoever is working. (I love when people do that - makes me feel more like a person and not just the manager...if that makes sense?) Anywho, as I was closing up he asked me if I was going on a date when I got off. I looked at him, smiled, and said "No not tonight." He then proceeded to say - "Oh wow...guess you always look that beautiful then" and walked away. Too cute! He totally made my night. He didn't have to say that - but chose to. He doesn't think anything "funny" by it - he is at least 6 years younger...but I thought it was just too sweet! Totally innocent.

Little things like that - make me so happy.

Here's a car that V and I saw the other night...we couldn't help but take a picture...we were trying to figure out what on earth the license plate said - it took a second...


Amusing, right? Who would have thought?!

Again, the little things...made a monotonous drive a little more amusing. (Monotonous only because we take the same route to the grocery store all of the time - not because we were with each other...just wanted to clarify!)

A couple more little things- having a man who asked me if he could vacuum because he likes putting lines in the carpet, people winking at me, homemade biscottis, snail mail - that isn't a bill or junk mail.

What are some of your favorite little things? Do they completely make your day like they do mine?!
