  1. Good idea.

    You’re so very right, we could do this until Monday morning if we let ourselves. Here are the first few that popped into my head:

    The sound of a small waterfall in the woods;
    My 8 year-old’s smile with 3 teeth missing;
    Playing tooth fairy;
    Campfires;
    My newly discovered sense of smell;
    Those first few stars that become visible toward the end of one of those perfect sunsets;
    PJ’s that just came out of the dryer;
    When the entire evening goes exactly according to plan.

  2. These are great, Chris. Gotta love those gap-toothed smiles. 🙂

    And an entire evening going exactly according to plan? Is such a thing possible??

  3. the excitement my dog shows when we get home after a day at work

    breaking the toffee top on a creme brulee and eating the first mouthful

    cup of tea brewed with quality leaves in a china pot and served in a china cup – preferably with a friend

    finding snail mail that is not a bill 🙂

  5. Heh heh, that perfect evening is pretty rare, now that I think about it. I guess that counts as one of those things that seems little but it’s actually huge.

  6. -Sasha’s smile every time she sees me.
    -Monty’s little voice first thing in the morning.
    -Bea’s dirty little chuckle.
    -Spending time with Him outdoors, just the two of us.

    I liked your list a lot. 🙂

  8. Oh, fun! Thanks for the push to think about this. I really needed it. 😀

    – Weekend mornings with coffee in bed and hubby and I having some quiet, idle chat time.
    – Being greeted with coffee and a smile weekday mornings by my wonderful hubby
    – Having one of my kids come up to me and give me a hug and say “I love you!” for no reason.
    – Cool Autumn Breezes
    – Beautiful sunsets
    – Catching that beautiful sunset in a photo so I can remember it long after it is gone.
    – My new workspace where I can let my creativity explode
    – Someone else fixing dinner for a change
