Join Me In Appreciating the Small Things...


I am lounging on my back patio this afternoon enjoying an unusally gorgeous sunny day for this time of year. Normally I would still be at work but I had a doctors appointment mid-afternoon that gave me the freedom to come home earlier than ususal.


As I sit here enjoying the sunshine on my face and the sound of birds chirping, and my favorite songs playing in the background, I am reminded how important it is to appreciate the small things in life.

Take time my friends to just sit and enjoy a glorious day. Notice the shadows playing across the back fence and the sounds of nature all around you. Life is fleeting and we lose so much by rushing around and not taking a moment for ourselves.

Rest assured your chores won't notice if you don't get to them for 5 minutes !

Join me in my backyard oasis and take 5 for yourselves.

Wow- that's your patio? How absolutely beautiful!
I live in WI where we are expecting another big temp drop tomorrow night- somewhere below zero.
Found your blog through your last post on 2peas. Sorry you are leaving.....

That is so beautiful! What a beautiful, soothing retreat for you. Thanks for sharing your photo. I'm in Michigan and all I see is about a foot of snow. Hey - at least the temp will be almost 30 degrees today.
I pictured myself laying on the couch and taking a quick nap listening to the birds and feeling the warm sun around me. Ahhhhhhhh

If I had that patio, I'd be lounging on it too! You'd laugh if I posted a photo of what's outside my back door.

This is gorgeous, it looks like something right out of a magazine.
