Celebrate the Small Things


Happy Friday!!! It's time to celebrate those small things!

This weekly blog hop is sponsored by the amazing Lexa Cain, and co-hosted by L.G. Keltner from Writing Off the Edge and myself. 

What exactly are we celebrating?

Every week, wonderful things happen, tiny things, which make us smile. But as time grabs us up, we forget all about these moments as if they never existed at all. This is the chance for us to reflect back on those and remember that there are tons of things worth celebrating.


This week, I'm celebrating. . .


1) Cool, quiet mornings! When I go out to feed my cows, there's a beautiful calmness in our small valley. I love just walking around and breathing it in.

2) Fuzzy blankets, socks and sweaters! It's snuggle time!!! With temperatures dropping fast and frosty mornings, everything warm, soft and fluffy gains bonus points in my book.

3) COOKIES!!! Okay, I really have to stop celebrating these as much as I do. The biggest downfall...blessing???...of being at home is the huge stack of chocolates, cookies and Christmas treats constantly within arm's reach on the kitchen table. Nibbling, snacking, with tea...in a fast grab. Oh those blessed pounds are coming, and what delicious ones they are! 


What about you? What put a smile on your face this last week? Did you go o' caroling? Find the perfect gift for someone? Join in another special family moment? Get a surprise at work? What are you celebrating this week?

  2. Very excited about the cooler weather. Frosty and cold, just the way I like it. Now, pass the cookies, please.

  3. I adore winter mornings - especially if I get up before anyone else in the house, and I can see the frost and the mist over our fields and everything is wonderfully quiet. I love having the fire on in winter as well :). I'll have a cookie to, please!

  4. Oh yes I love those cosy evenings and snuggling down. I can feel the pounds creeping on as there are so many lovely temptations around at the moment . . . I guess we'll all be trying to lose it again in the new year so might as well enjoy it now!

  5. You really can't beat fuzzy clothes and blankets in the wintertime. ^_^ So lucky to have treats around! Lol! I have nothing sweet in the house but cookie dough. Can you believe cookies don't make themselves?

    1. Luckily, cookie dough itself isn't bad either ;)

  6. Cool winds are in the tropics as well. Which is all well and good until it messes with clothes drying on the line. I put you out in the afternoon! Anyway Merry Christmas and enjoy those treats and nice mornings Tonja. Going to check your Cradle Rock Review right now.

    1. The clothes can get pretty tangled. Reminds me that I have to fix my line this Spring. Happy drying!

  7. Yum, cookies! I've promised my kids that we'll be doing some Christmas baking soon, so we'll have plenty of cookies in our house before long.

  8. I most definitely hear you about fuzzy blankets and cookies. ^_^ I have so many blankets for my bed, and a giant soft robe to wear around the house when it's cold. And I try not to keep sweets around the house because I'll devour them all, but that doesn't always happen. :P

    This week I'm celebrating sending off version 1.5 of my book to my second round of beta readers. Yay! And I only have to work four more days this year before my vacation starts. More yay!

  9. One reason I love cold weather is that I love all those fuzzy blankets and socks, etc. I love snuggling up!
    Enjoy those cookies and have a very Merry Christmas!

  10. I enjoy the feeling of snuggling into my blankets too. It feels so secure and delicious. Speaking of delicious, you're making me hungry for cookies!! I wish you and your family a very Merry Christmas!
