Something to smile about

It's been a crazy past several months, very hectic with lots of things to worry about and an insane amount of work... And it's not going to calm down until the summer. *sigh* But something that's helped, and always helps, is just finding simple little things that make you smile. Well, at least it has worked for me.

Like this afternoon in the local ice cream place, watching a boy from my neighborhood I have seen playing with the other kids in the pool downstairs these past two summers, getting an ice cream cone for a friend of his. A sweet little exchange between boy and girl that could be the beginning of something else. Adorable! :o)

Or receiving a long anticipated book in the mail... And anticipating the pleasure of cracking the cover and losing myself in the pages within.

And let's not forget the joys of not coughing after doing so for 5+ weeks non-stop! ;o)

There are lots of things to smile about you just have to stop and take a moment to notice them. And I'm going to try and remember to take a moment and share more of them here this Spring. See you around! :o)


  1. A much needed reminder to stop and smell the roses. I'm so glad you're feeling better! xx

    1. Smell the roses, enjoy the slice of cake, make time for friends... just enjoy the little things! :o)

  2. Now that's a long time to be sick, Cris. I am also very glad to hear you're better, and that you've got a good book to read! And it's nice to see your smiling "face" in my blog roll. :-)

    1. I don't think I've EVER been sick for such a long time, was horrible! I am SO glad it's over!
      I'm slowly dipping my toes back in the blogging world DJan! First step is to write a little something from time to time, nothing too ambitious ('cause those posts take a lot of work and time I don't have). Next step will be to start visiting my blogging friends again!


Hey there! Yes you! The quiet one in the back... I'd love it if you hung out for a bit and shared your thoughts!

I might stop by your place with an answer, but I'm more likely to reply right here so click on "email follow up comments" if you'd like to see what I and others have to say and come continue the conversation! ;o)
