Five Little Grins

Posted on

I’ve been in a bit of a funk the last few days. Nothing bad really, just a general feeling of “blah”. It’s probably the weather’s fault. (Stupid cold. Stupid short days. Stupid naked trees. BLAH.)

Anyways, I stumbled across this link-up over at Be a Warrior Queen and knew right away I needed to join in. Since I really do make it a priority to keep my eye on the positives in life, it seemed like a great chance to re-focus my mind.

 5 Little Grins

The idea is share five little things that are making me smile, so here goes…


1// My cousin Tyler came to visit us this weekend. I love that he lives closer now; it’s always great getting to see him.

2// This little snuggle bug. Joey isn’t much of a cuddler, but I can always count on Daisie Mae to curl up with me when I’m cold or just need some lovin’.

3// This super cute little notebook for jotting down all of my lists and thoughts. Bonus: it was on clearance for $3.

4// My camera. The more I use it, the more I love it. It seems to have unlocked a love for photography that I never knew I had. I find myself taking it everywhere I go these days, which is how I got this photo on a walk with the pups.

5// Mr. B’s little cousin making friends with Joey. Isn’t it just so stinkin’ precious??

What are you smiling about these days?



  • Thanks so much for linking up! It has been a bumper that its been so much colder out now. I wasn’t ready for it. And your pup is adorable.

    • Thanks for hosting such a great link-up! I’m not ready for colder weather AT ALL. And I will whine about it for the next 6 months 😉

  • Puppies make everything better! They are so adorable.

    • They really do! The world is a better place because we have fluffy little nuggets living with us 🙂

  • That notebook, I’m in love. I have a slight notebook addiction don’t mind me.

    • I do too! I have them stashed all over the house and in my purse.

  • the fussy britches

    I’m not very happy about the colder weather either. I already can’t wait for summer again!

  • Cold weather needs to go away! I have been practicing more with my camera too. So fun getting the hang of it!
