Little bits of Joy.

I was browsing some blogs earlier this week and I came across one that was a simple post of the little things. The little things that make such a big difference. 

Little things that bring me joy:

Great conversation with one of my sister in law. I don't ever want to take this for granted. I am so happy that I get along with B's family and that his sister's are so wonderful.
Finally opening up our windows at night. It's getting into the high 60's at night now and it is beautiful. The perfect amount of cold to snuggle with our big fluffy comforter.
Getting back to running. I stopped for so long and switched to other types of exercise. Getting back to running takes time. I'm motivated and I feel myself enjoying it and pushing though, making progress. Thank you to my running buddy, Sarah.
 This may be totally lame but the thought and sheer excitement of having kids. NO, I'm not pregnant but the thought of that in the future is so exciting. Knowing that B and I and our families get to experience that bring me joy.
My grandpa passed away about a month ago and at his memorial, a beautiful card was read. One part said to remember me and know I am here when you see butterflies, lately I have see lots and lots of them. That thought brings be joy. 
B and I have been married 5 months today. 
Grace. I love the word and the meaning. For some reason it sits well with me. In any situation I try to use this word. I try to respond, act and live with grace. 
A sweet email from my mother in law asking if I had any family traditions for Thanksgiving that I wanted to bring to my hubby's family. She and I have been emailing about thanksgiving and decorations and cute ideas etc. So sweet of her to ask if there is anything I want to bring into their family. 

I am very lucky and I wanted to take a second to appreciate it. It's funny, when I sat here thinking of all the little things that being me joy, these little things actually mean the most...above all else.
