happy little things

~stacks and stacks of fresh, clean, folded laundry

~two hours of peace and quiet while all three kids napped AT THE SAME TIME (how else do you think I got all that laundry folded?)

~ringlets of long brown hair bouncing up and down as a little girl plays
~five straight hours of sleep in the night

~a phone conversation with a brother who is far away and greatly missed

~reading library books with two sweet daughters while the baby sleeps

~fresh-baked banana bread

~a vibrant bouquet of cheerful red and yellow roses and wonderfully fragrant lavender, all from my garden

~soft baby sighs and squishy baby lips

~new episodes of our favorite shows

~falling asleep with my husband's warm hand clasped in mine

~blank notecards that are just waiting to be written upon and given to someone I love

~Easter candy (mmm, chocolate)

~this adorable face

what are the happy little things that have popped up in your week so far, my dears?

Awww yes so many happy things! Same with Angela... my main happiness is the fact that today is April 15th and I can breathe a huge sigh of relief that all the extensions and returns are out the door and finalized. This made me smile yesterday. AND we're heading into Bakersfield this weekend, so I'm looking forward to that :) I talked to my mom yesterday and she said she'd be giving you a call. Is sometime Sunday an okay time to meet up? I have the all-time cutest most-Talia-like present for Rosalie. haha.

I love this post! So warm and fuzzy and wonderful! So far I've gotten to enjoy some much-needed sunshine (with more to come this week!), lots of chocolate, and a new comforter set which I'm very excited about, and a nice sushi date night with the new boy :)

Hope the rest of your week is just as wonderful!

Flowers are gorgeous! I cannot believe they're from your garden!! I am going to copy your post one of these days, because I am in need of reminding about what is good in my life these days.

Sunny said...

Your post is just perfect! I have needed a reminder to think about all of the good things and blessings in my life, especially in light of these last couple of frustrating weeks. HUGS! I still haven't gotten to see little Rosalie! I hope that I can soon!
