I mustache you a serious question: what’s the best thing that’s happened to you today? ⠀ ...⠀ Obviously, going for milkshakes after preschool made the top of this girl’s list!
“The sunset is life’s way of saying, ‘Good job. You survived today. Here’s something pretty.’”⠀ ...⠀ #todayslittlejoy is tonight’s sunset. What was your little joy today?

I was having a tough day the other day.⠀ ...⠀ I was feeling all the things - stress, being busy at work, feeling MIA at home, in general just a little overwhelmed by life.⠀ ...⠀ My mom saw this, and gave me a big, understanding hug.⠀ ...⠀ And then, the next day she bought these flowers and gave them to my girls to give to me. I burst into happy tears at the thoughtfulness.⠀ ...⠀ There is nothing like a mother’s love. Regardless of age. #momsarethebest
Catching up on day 107 of #365daysofhappiness I believe there is real truth in this quote. Before Phoebe’s death I swear I walked round with my eyes closed. I didn’t appreciate the small things like these crocosmia but I do now. My perspective is forever changed...: #365daysofhappiness #crocosmia #smallthings #itsthelittlethings #itsthesmalljoys #smallbeautifulthings #foreverchanged #christinerasmussen #childloss #bereavedmummy #bereavedparents
Family movie night (minus my boy because he’s out of town). I’m a huge Marvel fan - the movies make me happy. . . . #familymovienight #antmanandthewasp #marvel #momlife #itsthesmalljoys #migrainesandmotherhood
My heart is overflowing with pure joy as we sit at the door enjoying the rain. . When I was in Indianapolis a few weeks back, my girlfriends were making fun of me for walking in the rain without cover. Today Lainey and I stood outside and tried to catch the drops in our hands. As the drops fell on us I was so grateful for that moment where I could share something I love with her. If it is raining, you will find me our dancing in it. . My heart has been pining for North Carolina since we left and today a little piece of it came to the desert and my heart is at peace.
Day 103 of #365daysofhappiness Ladybird, ladybird fly away home. As I ate my chicken sausages sandwich at the bottom of the garden I spotted this little ladybird on my newly planted pot. Tiniest of things but it made me smile.... #365daysofhappiness #ladybird #ladybug #itsthelittlethings #itsthesmalljoys #noticethesmallthings
I love seeing life through my daughter’s eyes - she was so excited to go out on a boat for the first time. Summer is made for days like this.
Is there anything as beautiful as a new beginning? ... It’s the first Monday of the month and of the new quarter. Setting goals, writing down events, making plans are all key for my own health and well-being, and I absolutely love my #inkwellpress quarterly planners.
So grateful for these lazy Sunday mornings with my girls. I love watching them play together and see their creativity blossom.
Make joy a priority! Plan for it, schedule it, make it happen!⠀ ...⠀ What’s next on your horizon that will bring you joy?⠀ ...⠀ I’m looking forward to this weekend: time with my family, some friends, an endorphin-boosting workout, and hopefully some downtime to read and take a breath.
Sometimes self-care is big and fancy, like spa days, facials and late night catch-ups with your best friend ... ... ... and other times it’s pausing to enjoy a lavender candle and quiet after the kids are in bed. One guess which one is my pick tonight!
Changing your mindset changes everything.
Have peonies always been this beautiful? I feel like I’m just discovering them this season! I bought a bouquet for a friend, and it cost a small fortune, but it was⠀ worth it to see her smile in delight. ⠀ ⠀ And then I discovered these at my local @traderjoes and they were a steal - $8 for the bunch, rather than $8 per stem. These ones are just as gorgeous. I’m enjoying them as long as I can!
When bae surprised you with a happy meal. #becausejibanyan #itsthesmalljoys
I lit a candle for my morning yoga practice. Sometimes it’s the little things that make a big difference and remind me to stay present in the moment. #yogaeverydamnday #yogainspiration #lovewhatyoudo #lightacandle #morningslikethese #morningpractice #bepresent #bepresentinthemoment #bepresentnow #loveyourlife #smallsteps #itsthesmallthings #itsthesmalljoys #itsthesmallthingsinlife #itsthesmallthingsthatcount
The last few times I’ve done the pots I’ve watched delicate little birds flit about our garden collecting twigs for their nests. • Has it improved my mental health? • Yes, I think it probably has. That is all 🙃🐦🌱 • #thehappynewspaper #happynewspaper #mentalhealth #simpleliving #simplelifehappylife #smallpleasures #itsthesmallthings #itsthesmalljoys #findhappiness #findhappinessinthelittlethings #springwatch #nestingbirds
My M&M turned out really good. Do you want to know my secret? Paint pens. My painted rocks have gotten so much better since I ditched the brushes, well almost ditched them. I still use them for things here and there. Comment and let me know what you think of my M&M!!
Sometimes we just need to pause and appreciate the little things in life 🍂🌳 #itsthesmalljoys #attitudeofgratitude
It’s April @treatboxuk day 😃. Some lovely treats again this month, although a lot will be headed to my sons room as it fits his theme nicely lol. Can’t wait to try the mud soap and cuticle oil. Passport holder is lovely too, who cares what colour a post Brexit passport is if I can cover it in pineapples 🍍😂 . . . #treatbox #treatboxuk #happymail #happymailday #makesmesmile #makesmehappy #selfcare #bekindtoyourself #snailmail #itsthelittlethings #brightenedmyday #thismakesmehappy #itsthelittlethingsinlife #thinkhappy #treatyourself #treat #treatforme #treats #pampered #pampertime #pamperyourself #selfcareinabox #huginabox #itsthesmallthings #itsthesmalljoys #littlejoysoflife #itsthesimplethings #pamperyourself #treatday

Sourcing new items for the shop is the best part of the job. But, it isn’t always so easy and many trips are unsuccessful. I walked out empty handed after driving 40 minutes to this store. The wonderful thing is that it was still very fulfillIng. Watching this older gentleman play this beaten up piano oh soooo beautifully truly made the visit all worth it. ~ ME #itsthesmallthings #itsthesmalljoys
What I found in my boot this morning....Dagny is part squirrel I’m sure. She always storing stuff. #lovemylife #blessed #lovemybabies #smilesinthemorning #itsthesmalljoys
I love the Spring! Birdies looking through your windows, cool breeze of air and flowers blooming. Sometimes you just need to Be Still (Psalm 46:10). This is my favorite season and so excited that I captured this picture as I arrived at the office. #hellospring #springhasarrived #lifeisbeautiful #itsthesmalljoys #workingmamalife #hotmessmama #iamawesome #thelifeofasouthernmama
Being a #SAHM , it’s the small things that excite me some mornings. Like being able to spend a solo few minutes brushing my teeth before 10am 😂😁 And yep, that is indeed a #Spiderman toothbrush. All Mums use them don’t they??!? 🤷‍♀️ #motherhood #raisingboys #itsthesmalljoys
No filter needed 😍✈️🌤 beautiful sky on the flight home to Glasgow #itsthesmalljoys
It’s @treatboxuk day, yay! Love this months box which is all about relaxing me time. The bag and mask are really useful and the coffee scrubs I can’t wait to try. The wax melt by Charismatic Cat is marshmallow and smells amazing. The nail varnish is a beautiful colour and I’ll be playing with this later. I just love getting these, really brightens up the month. . . . #treatbox #treatboxuk #happymail #happymailday #makesmesmile #makesmehappy #selfcare #bekindtoyourself #snailmail #itsthelittlethings #brightenedmyday #thismakesmehappy #itsthelittlethingsinlife #thinkhappy #treatyourself #treat #treatforme #treats #pampered #pampertime #pamperyourself #selfcareinabox #huginabox #itsthesmallthings #itsthesmalljoys #littlejoysoflife #itsthesimplethings #pamperyourself #m2mfl33 #ffmarchphotos #magicmamafollow19

I LOVE how excited little children get watching plants grow, and flowers bloom. I get pretty excited, too...but there is definitely something more genuine and pure about their excitement. June saw these little flowers blooming on our plant sitting on the kitchen table upon our return from our morning reboot excursion. She ran to tell me with so much joy and couldn’t WAIT to show me. We decided to take a picture to document the sweet “baby flowers”, as she called them. And, I thought it’d be fun to document her sweet little hands, too. ❤️ . . . . . #ohtoseethingslikeachild #childlikewonder #childlikejoy #loveherso #momlife #itsthesmalljoys

When it is cold and snowing a bit outside and it's mid week, it really is time for #warmupwednesday @secondcupcanada even if it means a two block detour! Yes and that is my pretty caramel correto there! #itsthesmalljoys #yegdt
When your husband surprises you with some beautiful flowers when he gets home, not because it's almost Valentine's Day ❤️but just because he loves you. I'm the luckiest girl on this planet. #beautiful #besthusbandever #couldntbebetter #itsthesmalljoys
When you just need a good giggle and to act silly, so you go down the stairs in a blanket 😝 #itsthesmalljoys #sprinklelifewithalittlesilliness #weirdcouplegoals
This was the view that greeted me this morning when I opened my hotel room curtains... It’s a small thing but it helped me start the day in a grateful and more positive mood.. #beautifulview #itsthesmallthings #itsthesmalljoys #beautifulmorning #grateful #gratitude #mindful #malahide #stopandlook
Can I tell on my other half for just a second? 🤣🙈🤗 Wednesday is my REST day & SLEEP IN day...but that doesn’t matter when your fiancé needs some lunch 🤷🏼‍♀️ & spare me on the “he’s an adult, he should do it himself” cause we ALL KNOW it tastes better when I fix it... DUH 🙄 (👀 I see our typos, it was early 🤦🏼‍♀️) #jonesesinjamaica #highschoolsweethearts #hesspoiled #sorrynotsorry
You know what kind of day it is? Chocolate chips in my pancake kind of day! . . I’m so thankful for #enjoylife gluten and dairy free chocolate goodies! They make my life more flavorful, but more importantly, they make my kids too. . . #glutenfree #dairyfree #proteinrich #itsthesmallthings #itsthesmalljoys
Ahhhhh life is often about enjoying simple pleasures. I think it’s one of the best ways we can all bring a little more joy into our lives - small things that can bring a lift to your day whether that’s a walk in the park, a big hug with a loved one, savoring a favorite comedy show that makes you laugh and so on. One of my favourite things is a real chai almond milk latte - the kind with steeped tea not the sickly sweet flavoring from a carton. I love to sprinkle a little cinnamon on top and oh my how delightful it is. Warm and soothing and cozy. I hope you all find a little time for something that brings you joy today. . . . . . . #RealLifeRevolution #simplepleasures #chailatte #almondmilk #vegan #cinnamon #tea #tealover #soothing #comforting #findjoy #liftyourspirits #gratitude #itsthesmalljoys #inspiration #smallwaystobehappy #hugs #love #comfort #findjoy #freshair #walks #friends #laughter #lovelove

A large oil on canvas landscape/seascape from last year, created with love for @seeingthesmallthings I particularly loved doing this piece as I played around a lot with the paint,creating layers and texture, aiming to focus as much on the process as the end result. Thank you to @seeingthesmallthings for taking such a lovely photo and featuring my work on her fantastic site. You can see more of @seeingthesmallthings beautiful photography at https://seeingthesmallthings.com/2018/01/29/five-small-but-good-things-week-two/ You can also read her weekly blog on noticing and appreciating those little things that make life sweet. #itsthesmalljoys #simplethingsinlife #begrateful #bemindful #seascape #oilpainting #oil #oilseascape #oillandscape #landscape #gower #gowerpeninsula #wales #southwales #processinpainting #paintforhealth #photography #interiorphotography

My mom made the BEST blonde brownies. It’s been a long time since I’ve had them so I decided to use my new kitchenaid to make them even though I’m not a baker at all. They tasted just like hers. #itsthesmalljoys #kichenaidlove
A COLD dreary Monday...always better with a little pink.#itsthesmalljoys #pink #myhouseinjanuary #hibernationtime #padanaramvillage
#mondaymotivation #beatthejanuaryblues #craftycreations #macrame #freestyle #driftwood so January is always that ducky month that if your not careful you can find yourself in a bit of a slump ... so rather than get down I'm getting lifted throwing myself into some #creative projects, #healthy eating, planting seeds creating compost #30dayyogachallenge and anything I can think of that makes me #feelgood I won't lie I do find myself at times feeling the winter blues but sticking at the positive stuff and keeping present (that's key!!!) #itsthesmalljoys
The new entrance. Is it weird that at nearly 50 I finally feel like a grown up because I have outdoor lighting that works? Lil 🐀❤️ #itsthesmalljoys
If you are a big fan of @riflepaperco like me, they are coming out with the sweetest stamp January 18th. How sweet for a wedding announcement, Valentine’s card, or just because....❤️🌸💐❤️ #usps #lovenotes #valentines #weddinginvitation #handwrittennotes #bringonspring #itsthesmalljoys

We’ve been forced to slow down in our household the past 48 hours (and counting). Early Bird is sick and is missing her last week of school before the break, including the always anticipated class Christmas party 😩 . 🎄 . there’s nothing worse when you’re 8 having to miss a class party, you know fun is always had. I told her today we’d have a class party for her here at the house instead, even if it only has 3 people. She said that would help her feel better! . 🎉 . So, even though EB is sick I’m thankful for the past ✌🏻slower days, afternoon naps, cuddles & endless hours of watching Fixer Upper with my girl. #itsthesmalljoys
#whatiswrongwiththispicture I'll tell you: All 3 kids are still sleeping, what the what!?! It's past 7:00, this NEVER happens!!!! I have a HOT cup of coffee in hand, it's still hot from being brewed- not reheated 18 times... I am showered and dressed! (No hair or make up- but clean body and clothes are 1/2 the battle) There is an adult show on the TV, I have NO idea what's going on in he world-- but I can tell you the full Disney line up for the week!!!! #itsthesmalljoys #sleepingkiddos #hotcoffeeforme #noreheating #catchinguponworldnews #peaceandquiet #atruechristmasmiracle #christmasmiraclesdohappen #illtakeeverysecondofthis #parentingwin #lifewithkids #itllbeoverbeforeyouknowit

🌛 • Someone's been a little shy.. opening up at night and being all secretive and shit! • 🌜 . I sadly missed the first one opening up last night, but still had the pleasure of appreciating it this morning while it was slowly shutting up shop! 👋🏼👋🏼 . I had a strong feeling in my heart that tonight was the night for the second one to open and spread its beauty... and by the miracles of the universe, she/he did! 🙏🏼😍 . Didn't even think anything when I potted this guy with two shoots coming off the sides, I am truely at awe with this flower, so simple yet so majestic, it's the little things that bring joy! 🌝🌱🙏🏼🌵✨🌌🌼🔮💦💖😇 . #sanpedro #sanpedrocactus #nightlife #bloomsatnight #sanpedrocactusflower #flowering #blooming #nightphotography #cactuslife #cactuslove #hellolittleone #proudmoment #blessed #grateful #inawe #appreciation #beautiful #miraclesoftheuniverse #littlethingsinlife #itsthesmalljoys #goodvibes #positivity #followmyjourney ✌🏼✨
