"Enjoy the little things in life, for one day you may look back and realize they were the big things"
I was thinking about this famous quote by Robert Brault this morning and thinking how completely true it is. Well, that's to say it rings true for me. One of my favourite things about blogging is that it allows me to document my own Little Things. I have become very good at using my camera to capture moments in time, preserving memories that would so easily slip away if I didn't make an effort to hold onto them.
The images on my camera are often quite random, little snapshots of everyday life. And today I felt like sharing a few of them from the past ten days in celebration of Ordinary Life. Enjoy........
:: enjoying the tradition of sharing a jug (or two/three) of Pimms No. 1 with my Dad when he came to stay ::
:: enjoying a very delicious meal out at a local Indian restaurant with superb views across the canal. It was an extra special treat as it was child free :o) ::
:: enjoying a bus trip. We sat on the top deck right at the front (Little B was thrilled) which gave us a super view of our high street. It was only a simple jaunt to a nearby town for lunch, but the bus journey through the countryside was really enjoyable ::
:: enjoying passing on my hooky skills and teaching a lovely local lady to crochet at the café on Friday. She was deservedly proud of her very first granny square, and I felt the glow of happiness ::
:: enjoying an early morning walk with the family across green fields and along this gorgeous tree lined lane. It was only a short local walk, but it was lovely to be out and about so early on a lovely sunny day ::
:: enjoying the colour of the sky, I just love that shade of cloudless blue ::
:: enjoying the afternoon light streaming through my tiny kitchen window (which really needs a clean I see!) The plant on the windowsill is Little B's Magic Beanstalk (planted at playgroup and inspired by Jack and the Beanstalk) ::
:: enjoying the scent of fresh mint in the kitchen. This was initially part of the Pimms Enjoyment, but has also been enjoyed with delicious buttery Jersey Royal potatoes this week ::
I found these two beautiful wordy illustrations on Etsy when I was looking for prints of the Robert Brault quote. You can find them at Hello Little Fox, I think they are delightful.
