The Little Things...

The end of another week.  Well, it's the end of mine anyway.  We are taking off tomorrow morning for a weekend in Vermont.  I'm looking forward to good meals, interesting conversation, beautiful mountains, fun skiing, and even the long drives with my husband.  All of it will be kid-free, and although I always miss my boys when we're apart, these little breaks are good for all of us.  

These are just a few pictures I snapped around the house.  The little pot of succulents has been making me happy since my mom gave it to me for Christmas.  (Thanks Mom!)  I think now that the boys are getting a little older, perhaps I can bring more plants into the house.  

Below is my "to-read" stack of books.  The pile grows on my nightstand.  I am currently making my way through The Hunger Games trilogy - a guilty pleasure to be sure, but one I'm thoroughly enjoying.  Any suggestions on what I should pick up next?  

I've gained so much by learning to appreciate and express gratitude for all the little things in life.  Plants, books, music, and road trips are just a few of the things I am grateful for today.  What about you?


  1. i love seeing wildwood in the stack of books. a little bit of pdx! xo

  2. I love your succulent. It's so cute! I just started reading The Marriage Plot, so far, so good. I would love more book review posts from you, since we seem to have similar interests because I'm always looking for something new to read!

  3. Best wishes for a happy weekend Mary.. Love your little things. :) xx

  4. I haven't read Half Broke Horses, but I loved Glass Castles by her. Let me know if you like HBH.


Thanks so much for taking the time to comment. I really love hearing from the people who read this little blog of mine. Thanks for stopping by!
