Loving the Little Things :: Cedar Rapids, Iowa Photographer

Do you ever tend to notice yourself discontent with life? I think it happens to most people. Sometimes, I think we get so caught up in the little day to day ho hum tasks and "to-do's," that we forget to notice the little things that make life so wonderful! A couple days ago, I made of a list of all the things that seem small, but really make my day special when I stop and think about them. I have found that I enjoy life much more and am even a bit more cheerful (I hope!)  
{The original idea came from a tumblr site, Just Little Things.}

  1. Yummy healthy food.

“Life is full of beauty. Notice it. Notice the bumble bee, the small child, and the smiling faces. Smell the rain, and feel the wind. Live your life to the fullest potential, and fight for your dreams.”   -Ashley Smith
