Every once in a while I like to take some time to appreciate the simple things in life. I feel like I'm always rushing around or working, which sometimes keeps me from just taking a moment to enjoy some of life's little pleasures. So I've decided to share some of the things that have put a smile on my face over the past couple of weeks.
My good friend Alexa makes the most adorable handmade cards and frames that she will personalize just for you. I asked her to use her crafty imagination and create a beach themed thank you card.
I absolutely love it. If you would like something personalized for yourself check out her Etsy page or contact her via Facebook or Twitter.


I enjoyed a simple and deliciously spicy Bloody Mary at home while watching Mr. Barley run around in the backyard.  

 Relaxing and blogging at The Lucas Confectionery while indulging in some of the best cheese and wine the Capital Region has to offer.

If you didn't know, I'm a little nutty about stationary, cards, and any sort of paper product. Yes, I know its a bit weird, but I enjoy keeping some around for a spur-of-the-moment I need something cute for someone type of thing, ya know? I found these these simple speech bubble cards during my latest trip to Michaels and decided to personalize one and leave a quick love note for M.

Cute magnets with inspirational quotes from Northshire Bookstore in Saratoga, NY. They're nice reminders to keep me working hard for what I want to achieve in life. 

Always remember... 

What are some simple things that have put a smile on your face lately? 


  1. Gosh I couldn't agree more. The simple, and often little, things can bring the greatest joy. Sometimes I think we forget that the big things are just a whole bunch of little things compiled into one. Cheers to loving the simple!
