Celebrate the 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) New pool! We 'inherited' an overground outdoor pool when we bought the house. Unfortunately, this year marked the end of the liner and pump. Luckily, we found one marked down (because it's camouflage and nobody's into camouflage???). The kids and I put it together, and now it's pool time!
2) Summer reading program at the library! The kids love participating. . .I'm not going to lie. They love the prizes more than the reading. But it keeps them busy.
3) Blueberry season has arrived! This meant a trip to the local farmer fields and lots o' pickin' to do. We picked up 2 gallons, which is just enough to bring us through the occasional blueberry pancake and muffin treats during the winter. . . and a blueberry frappe or two this summer too.
4) Seeing my finished Ubook! Yep, this one is going to hit the world pretty soon *squeal time*. It's quite a different experience to see the story not only appearing word by word on a screen, but the lovely narration and fitting music in the background are amazing. I can't believe how much work went into it and am kind of humbled...but also super excited!
What about you? What put a smile on your face this last week? Grab an inner-tube and head for a water slide? Go to a concert? Enjoy a delicious dinner?
