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.
What exactly does this celebrate?
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.
Due to lack of time, I've decided to no long co-host with L.G.. I will still be here and hopping around, but I found it harder and harder to really visit everyone during the weekends and post constantly. IF anyone is interested in taking my place, I'm sure L.G. would love the help, so please let her know if you're interested!
This week was cold and has left me celebrating. . .
1) Snow! We actually got snow. An entire 1 1/2 inches *gasp*! I grew up in the Denver area, so this is more of a light dusting, in my opinion. But here, in the Ozarks, it was enough to cancel school for 4 days. They have a huge fear of ice here. . .as in overly gigantic fear. . .but the kids loved the free time.
2) Smoked ribs! We gave my husband a smoker for Christmas, and he finally gave it a try. We made 6 pounds of spare ribs and oh, they were good!
3) Hugs! Especially those from my kids. The cold weather has made them cuddlier than usual. And I've been enjoying every second.
What put a smile on your face this last week? Did you go sledding? Buy your first pair of shorts for the far-approaching summer? Find a warm pair of gloves in the bottom of your drawer?
What are you celebrating?
