polaroids, daisies & italian soda

It's so easy when you're sick, stressed, tired, and incredibly busy to throw yourself a pity party.
 It's an uncomplicated task to overlook the beauty of a sunny spring day when you are stuck inside working. 
It's simple to not see the beauty in the little things. 
It's no trouble to focus on accomplishing tasks rather than living life.

However, when you take a second to look a little closer, realize that God is good, and you are truly blessed... you might be blown away at the beauty of those little things in life.

For instance:

The color of the italian soda in a sweet little mason jar. 
A snippet of a verse that keeps things in perspective, constantly, up on a chalkboard.
White daisies reminding me that spring is here and I survived made it through Winter. 
A cute little vintage polaroid camera that is the perfect addition to the top of our bookshelf.  

I sure hope you take a second to enjoy the little things today, friends.

This is the day that the Lord has made;
let us rejoice and be glad in it.
((psalm 118:24))


love.
