It's the Little Things

Pin It I'm not super into New Years Resolutions. This year, Mr. K and I took kind of an overall approach to resolutions and simply have stated that we can "do better". Do better in eating right. Do better in exercising. Do better in traveling more. Do better in being more positive and optimistic. Do better in being grateful and appreciating the little things.

In an effort to help us with that last one, I actually bought Mr. K and I tear-off calendars for our work desks. They are "The Calendar of Awesome". Each day is a new "awesome little thing". For example, January 1 was "the first scoop out of a brand new jar of peanut better". Awesome! It's fun to tear off each day and think about all of those little things that make life great. Today, we will feature my own list of awesome little things:

The smell of coffee in the morning

Putting on comfy shoes (in my case, Ugg slippers) after being in heels all day

Finally getting into your seat on the plane after a long travel day.
Bonus if it's a window seat!

The satisfying "pop" of opening up a champagne bottle

Waking up in the middle of the night thinking it's time to get up. Checking your clock and seeing you still have 3 hours to sleep

The first day Starbucks brings back the Pumpkin Spice Latte in the fall

Fuzzy socks

Cuddles with sweet puppies

Getting mail. The good kind, like a card or note from a friend. None of that bill or jury duty notice crap!

The first night in bed after you have washed your sheets

When Olivia Pope says:

ITs Handled Olivia Pope gif

Perfectly twisting apart an Oreo

Getting your nails done

Laughing until your sides hurt

This clip never fails to make me laugh

When a deadline is extended

When a restaurant serves Coke, not Pepsi

Seeing old friends and catching up like no time has passed

Cheese fries

Fresh flowers 

That first feeling of relief after you have been dreading something

The smell of gasoline 
Ok, whatever, some people like fresh cut grass, I like gasoline, ok!? Get off me!
