Yesterday was a full and busy day after a very full and busy week. We spent the evening with my friend Marta of VonGrey Photography getting our 5 year anniversary pictures taken. I can't wait to share how they turned out.

I love that my husband appreciates photography and has just as much fun as me on these shoots. I know that there aren't many guys out there willing to spend 3 hours getting their picture taken, and I love that about him. These pictures will be a treasured memory...the images and the experience.
As much fun as yesterday was, I am hurting really bad today after such a busy week. I just did too much and wasn't as gentle with myself as I should have been (thanks for that comment Dani). I even got blisters yesterday getting to locations for pictures. If I'd known we'd be hiking I would have worn different shoes. :P
And so today has become a day of rest. I'm still learning to recognize my new limits and pause and rest when I need to.
I thought it would be a good idea for me to start a list of the little things that bring me joy, especially on hard days. I want to write them down to save them, savor them, share them, and encourage others to do the same. Today seems like a perfect day to start.
- Writing in my journal.
- Making my husband laugh.
- Online courses from inspiring women
Please feel free to share your "little things" in the comments here. Or blog about it and post a link. Truly celebrating the everyday comes with taking time to notice the little things that make us smile. I'm compiling a running list and saving them HERE. I'd love if you joined me.
What are your "little things"?
How do you remember to stop and savor them?
