Today I Am Talking About My Small Joys #BlogSmallJoys

When Alex asked me to write for her new blog series #BlogSmallJoys I was honoured.

I admire Alex and her writing ability. She definitely has a way with words.

While thinking about what to write for this post I was reminded of when I participated in Project Happy back in 2012.

My #BlogSmallJoys post will be similar to the Project Happy posts I wrote back then.

Now, what are your small joys?

    I took most of Saturday off because my husband was leaving for a long trip to Asia on Sunday. I read almost an entire book, one that felt like it busted me out of my reading rut (nothing seemed satisfying lately) and it was positively blissful. I will probably review it for tomorrow’s post. :)

      A trip to Asia! Wow! That would be amazing.

      Cannot wait to read more of your NaBloPoMo posts!

    My small joys are watching my children interact! I love hearing them chit chat, watching them snuggle and feel the love that they share!

    We’ve had some serious anxiety issues for our littlest starting Kindergarten, she’s sobbed/wailed and suffered with being away from me for the majority of the last 5 weeks. Today though, she gave me a hug, a kiss and was off, no tears. It was a beautiful small (and big) joy to see!

      We struggled with the beginning of Kindergarten this year too. We were dealing with many tears too. I am glad to hear that she made it without tears yesterday!

    I love having freshly made beds and no dishes in the sink!

    My small joys are walks through nature, a cup of warm milk on a cold day, and sharing a laugh with my kids.

      I love your small joys! I enjoy walks but haven’t gone for a while.

    My small joys include the 20 mins of me time before the family wakes. A great song on the radio and my dogs at my feet while watching a movie

      Aww, that sounds peaceful. I wake up after my kids. I should probably start a new routine to save some quiet time for myself in the morning.
