{It's the Little Things...Family & Friends}

October 28, 2011

Hello my lovely friends and followers!!

I hope you are all doing well and enjoying your Fall season thus far!  I have personally been quite busy lately, and my month has been filled with tons of fabulous events and occasions celebrated with my family and friends.

I have recently returned home after traveling for the past few weeks, and I'm now attempting to adhere to my "normal" daily schedule that I happily abandoned while I was away. :)  I must admit that this task has been a bit of a challenge, and I find myself missing the special things {and people} by whom I was surrounded throughout my travels.  I have spent the past few days reflecting on my life, my loved ones, and all the things that are near and dear to my heart, and I'm so incredibly thankful for each and every one of them.

As always, I have found great comfort in reading my friend Lindsay's blog, From the Aisle to Aloha, and her "It's the Little Things" blog series inspired me so much during a week when I needed it most.  Thank you, Lindsay, for your touching posts and for your love and appreciation of the little things in life...

Aisle to Aloha
It is my pleasure to link up to Lindsay's Link Party today, and it warms my heart to share with you the little things that made me smile this week...

...My Daddy.  He is my best friend and my hero, and he's always there for me...no matter what.  Thank you, Daddy, for drying my tears this week, for helping me smile again, and for knowing that cupcakes for lunch and Gamecock giggles were exactly what I needed to cheer me up on a gloomy day. :)
...Reflecting on the quality time spent with family and friends throughout the past few weeks and the special moments I shared with my little munchkins {my friends' kids who truly mean the world to me}.
...Welcoming my beautiful sister and my new brother-in-law home from their honeymoon and reminiscing about their perfect wedding weekend.
...Memories of our wedding...So fresh on my mind after standing in our church watching my sister walk down the aisle.
...Fall pops of color and pumpkin carving with my husband for Halloween.
These little things have made me smile this week, and just the thought of them has truly brightened my day.

What are the little things in your life that have made YOU happy this week?  I would love to hear them, and I wish you all the best for a fabulous and fun weekend!!

Glad you linked up! I just discovered your blog and I must say, I love a great southern girl who loves football! Roll Tide- but I like the SC and have many friends who are fans! That looks like a great dad you have there! I lost my dad when I was young. Always appreciate him and spend as much time as you can with him! Hope your routine gets back to normal soon. That is always hard!
