Small Treasures

It's Small Treasure Tuesday

This morning, I watched this clip on the Today Show (You all do know my love for all things Matt Lauer), and on the show, they were interviewing an author who wrote a book called 1000 Awesome Things.  The author, Neil Pasricha, started it off as a blog, writing a list of the small things in life he considered "awesome."  You know?  Those small things that make you step back and smile and appreciate the little blessings.  It's also what Chantel's blog does with her Small Treasure Tuesdays!  So, to me, here are the things I considered awesome today:

The smell of coffee and cooked bacon as I woke up this morning.  (Thanks T!)

The first taste of coffee for the day.

Freshly laundered sheets

Flipping through the channels and coming across Hoarding: Buried Alive

Warm chocolate brownies, fresh out of the oven

A new pair of shoes

Getting a letter from an old friend

Spending the evening in watching TV with T

So those are some of my small treasures for the day, but one big treasure is my niece, Roo - today is her 5th birthday!  I can't believe she's already five! 

What small treasures are you celebrating today?


  1. Lovely treasures!!
