I wanted to try something a bit new with my blog—not only as an exercise in thankfulness and positivity but as a means of writing something more regularly.
I first read about Things I Love Thursdays (TILT) through Gala Darling’s Blog and I’ve always admired the way that she (and loads of other people!) never fails to celebrate the big things and the little things they love without fail every Thursday. My Memom shared a quote with me from her calendar the other day that said “Enjoy the little things, for one day you may look back and realize they were the big things” (Robert Brault). So here’s to celebrating the little things, the big things and most of all, the happy things!
