“Life is made up, not of great sacrifices or duties, but of little things, in which smiles and kindness, and small obligations given habitually, are what preserve the heart and secure comfort.” Humphry Davy
It’s so easy to forget that all the small moments we experience everyday can actually bring joy if we let them. Embracing mundane chores and letting “have to’s” become “get to’s”. Slowing down and letting myself just be in the moment instead of focusing on what is next. Celebrating the everyday for what it is. Not because each day is some spectacular big production, but appreciating everyday for what it is and finding peace and contentment in that. I’ve partnered with The White Company, who are opening their first store in New York on June 15th, (check out more info here) to help share this exact message … And what better reminder than their mantra “Perfect Simplicity”.
Jude and I have been visiting out local farmers market every Saturday for the last month or so. We’ve been getting enough vegetables, fruits, eggs, and bread, which has been significantly cutting down the amount of times we’ve needed to stop by the grocery store …. something definitely worth celebrating in my book! We’ve also been getting a small bunch of wildflowers to display around the house. The simple beauty of a delicate wildflower placed in those little glass bottles makes me smile as I’m heading from room to room picking up toys or making beds …. It’s nothing big or monumental but it makes all the difference.
