little things

Sometimes, you just have to drop what you're doing, cancel plans, and just play video games with your three-year-old brother.

At times, it's refreshing to have a heart to heart with a girlfriend into the wee hours of the morning, while painting until your fingers are stiff from the acrylic.

Occasionally, it's okay to just stop and appreciate the way some of your favorite books just seem to belong to one another.

Frequently, you just need to write with a pen + paper, just to connect emotionally with your piece. (For me, physically writing down something is much more engaging than typing on the computer.)

Once in a while, you need to go shopping for the perfect Easter dress with friends -- and then come back for it later when you have money. ;)

Every now and then, you just have to stop and enjoy the ordinary. Because such moments -- the little things, if you will -- not only make up life, but make it worth living.

So true. Slowing down, and enjoying the little things of life many times means a whole lot more than the bigger and busier things.
Great post! :)

I tried on that dress at Maurices but ended up getting a flowered one instead! And you have a nice book selection there. :)

OK I'll stop comment-stalking your blog after this one. But I just have to say that your pile of favorite books seriously warms my heart. TKAM is in my all-time top 5, and the giver and the hiding place are in the top 10.

Jordan -- was it the yellow and blue one? I tried that one on too, and thought it was adorable.

Katilda -- I love, love, love those books. They give me major feels.
