The Little Things: 001

     The past weekend was full of sunshine and glorious weather, especially for late January. However, typically winter stretches my limits of optimism. I always find joy in the minute details of my life. For instance, hearing an old favorite song on a mix CD that a friend gave me, then seeing a family of deer, while driving across town made my day even more wonderful. But when things aren't going right, I want to be able to focus on all the things I love the most.
     Thus, my new feature was born. Every so often, I'll be posting pictures of the little things that are putting a smile on my face. 
The Little Things: 001
  • Painting outside: The weather was so glorious last Sunday that I could not just sit inside to paint. I had to take in the sights, sounds, and smells of the day. I was so excited that even dragging the furniture and supplies outside was fun.
  • Panera Valentine Petite cookies: A spin on their original shortbread cookie, this cute little bag contains the secret to sheer delight. While it probably isn't the best treat for those on a diet, they also sell heart-shaped cookies in single servings. I look at that bright pink frosting and immediately feel happier.
  • Rusty things: I always try to stop and take pictures of things that are old and worn. This bus was no exception.
  • Birds: While I don't think that owning one as a pet is the road I'm on, I am enamored with birds and all their related subjects (birdhouses, cages, etc.).
What are some little things that you are delighting in this week?
