The little things

With the usual life stressors going on, I'm sitting here right now feeling gratitude for the little things in my life that keep me centered . . . a day at home with some quiet "me" time, the piping hot and delicious vanilla latte I just made for myself (and my beloved espresso maker that makes a perfect cup every time), my sweet cats curled up on the couch next to me, and my comfy Dearfoam slippers that are keeping my tootsies warm on this cold day.

Speaking of little things, here is a layout I made for an article in Creating Keepsakes magazine about scrapbooking with itty bitty items.  This layout took me a while, but I really enjoyed the process.

These are some of my favorite photos of my younger daughter.  She was only 18 months old at the time.  Awwwww . . . those cheeks, those eyes, those little curls . . . they warm my heart!!  She is 9 years old now (and of course she still warms my heart!).
