The little things that make you smile :)

How many times do we get caught up with the big things or just weighed down with everyday tasks and so much stress that we totally forget to stop and appreciate the little things...?

I had such a good day on Monday because for the first time in ages I really felt like I stopped and "smelled the roses" as such. It was totally awesome. Somehow I managed to squeeze all my favourite things to do into the one day.

First I got to spend the morning with my niece's which I absolutely love. They make me smile for so many reasons. They get so excited just from watching a tv show, playing with bubbles, drawing with crayons or even eating sultanas! If only we all got so much joy from everything we did each day.

Secondly I got to take photos all morning and I LOVE taking photos. Hence the Feb photo a day challenge on my facebook page. Below is my gorgeous niece and her friend Indie playing with the bubbles.

Then I went home and had a very short but awesome afternoon nap! How good are afternoon naps? I never sleep good at night but I am sooo good at sleeping through the day time. Weird huh?

After that I made a new cheesecake recipe that Ive never tried before. This is one of my new favourite things to do. Cooking has always been one of my loves but lately I have been obsessed with trying out new recipes and challenging myself just to see what Im capable of. Its so exciting when you try something new that you thought you wouldnt be able to do and it turns out you can! Such an amazing sense of accomplishment!

So all in all it was a fantastic day. Im now going to spend more time doing the little things because you can get so much joy from a single second and Im determined to soak up all the joy I can get!
