~simple things~

Enjoying the simple things.....something that I LOVE to do! I try to thank the Lord for all those little things that sometimes it's easy to take for granted! Like curling up with a good book, smelling candles, a new box of crayons, coffee, chatting with your mom! =)
All of these things I love to do, and yet sometimes, I forget to really appreciate them. So today, as I spent some time with my mom, I took some time to just reflect and thank the Lord with all of my heart that I have someone that gives me pep talks {...and buys me a peppermint mocha from Starbucks! =) }

If you haven't tried one yet.....you MUST! They are delicious! My usual is a white-chocolate mocha, but I decided to give this one a try, and it is scrumptious! It reminds me so much of Christmas time!
While my mom and I were out we went Bath & Body Works. I absolutely love that store! Everywhere you look there are candles, lotions, perfumes, body washes, and the list of scents is endless. So, we had fun smelling all the different smells & finally decided to get these wallflowers. Also something you should check out! They really work and my room already smells amazing, like Warm Vanilla Sugar {my favorite scent}
And my hallway smells like Twisted Peppermint!
So, today was all about enjoying those simple things! Taking the time to thank God for each and every little blessing! If you do this, you will find you are thanking God A LOT! =)
