Life's About The Little Things
























The little things... 

A hot mug of tea between two cold palms. 

Fresh, crisp sheets that smell of washing powder. 

Spontaneous days out. 

The smell of brownies baking in the oven. 

Realising it's the weekend and rolling over to continue with much needed sleep.

New pyjamas. 

Baths with your favourite bath bomb. 

Baggy jumpers. 

A successful shopping trip. 

The sound of rain thudding against window panes.

Conversations about everything under the sun. 

Enjoy the little things in life, because one day you'll wake up and realize they were the big things.

  2. *happy sigh* Yes. These are all lovely. Sometimes I need to remember how important the little things are, like ice water and dandelions and the smell of a campfire. :) Thanks for sharing, Lauren!

  7. Hello Lauren! Thanks for visiting my blog! Your blog is also really cute!

    I have to agree with waking up, realizing its the weekend and going back to sleep. But sometimes, I really wish I could fight that urge to sleep and get up to enjoy the morning that I otherwise ignore in the hustle and bustle of getting to med school. Watching the sun rise for example- that would make the day well spent in my opinion :)

    1. Thank you so much Catalina, no problem at all ~ thank you so much for following!

      I agree completely, on days when I do wake up early I am so much more productive... and as good as staying in bed is, that groggy feeling you get afterwards is not so great!

      Thank you for your comment!
