Little Moments

Muppets!!!! πŸ™‚

It was my brother’s birthday last week, so the Wee One and I called him to sing and wish him a happy day. During our chat, I was telling him about our upcoming trip to Paris and all the things I’m excited to show the Wee One. As usual, he started making fun of me and how much I spoil her – which is kind of true, but I don’t believe that she is a brat. I try to give her every thing and opportunity that I didn’t have, and I smother that kid with love love LOVE…which isn’t a bad thing. I know that my brother is happy and excited for us – but his remarks got me thinking about the beauty of the simple things in life. πŸ™‚ I’m a person who needs to stop, unplug, and reboot every so often as I seem to lose track of the simple pleasures around me – between my 12-16 hour work days, the number of nighttime duties and events that I have, my Wee One and her busy little life…it’s no wonder I sometimes lose my way a bit. Let’s make a list of the sweetest things we can think of…that’s guaranteed to make us feel better, right? πŸ™‚ Here we go! πŸ™‚

Great coffee πŸ™‚

-Drinking a good cup of coffee in bed πŸ™‚
-Sitting at the piano, placing your hands on the keys, and listening to the pretty tinkling as you start playing
-Audrey Hepburn singing “Moon River“, or Cristin Milioti singing “La Vie En Rose“…perfection πŸ™‚
-Going for a walk
-The smell of oranges, vanilla, and rain πŸ™‚
-Waking up in the morning to the sound of silence, no obnoxious alarm clock in sight
-The smell of bacon cooking – yum πŸ™‚
-Holding hands
-Fresh flowers in a vase on a table
-The first sip of an icy cold beer on a hot day – bonus points if you’re drinking it in a delightfully trashy dive bar πŸ™‚
-The sound of a laughing child
-The Muppets. All of ’em. πŸ™‚
-Falling asleep with the TV on
-Sheep…such adorable, awesome animals πŸ™‚
-Comfortable shoes
-Warm blankies on a cold night
-Spooning πŸ™‚
-A perfect cocktail with lime in it πŸ™‚
-The song “Dream A Little Dream Of Me”…in English and in French πŸ™‚ Bonus for this Mama Cass version…the best ever: Dream A Little Dream Of Me

The perfect mojito πŸ™‚

I could go on and on, listing all of the silly things I love…and I will be watching my inbox if you fancy sending me what’s on your list! I know that at times (a lot of the time) I make my life wayyyyy more complicated than it needs to be. I’m not the only one who does that, I know…it seems to be a sign of the times. With all of today’s modern conveniences, we also make things exponentially more complex. Every so often it’s good to turn off, to shut down all of the noise, and just be alone with yourself and your thoughts (frightening though they may be) – luckily my warped little mind and I get along pretty well…we’re both easily amused. πŸ™‚
