The Little Things.

So much of day-to-day happiness is caused by little things. Catching an unexpected green light, dinner turning out to be delicious, the smell of coffee in the morning, getting a good night's sleep. Things we don't really think of as noteworthy, but they make us happy all the same. 

I say cheers to those ordinary things that make life beautiful. Cheers to the things that, when added up, make us so much happier. Cheers to the mundane, boring, and blissful. 

Ordinary, little things making me happy this week:

Fall colors. I just can't get enough. It may be 1,000 degrees outside, but every store I go in is covered in reds and golds and mustards and I'm loving it.

Well-done fries at Chick-Fil-A. If you've never tried this, you need to cancel your lunch plans and hit up a drive-thru. Order your fries well-done and 1) You're guaranteed to get steaming hot fries, and 2) they're crunchy and just perfect. 

Friday Night Lights. Rewatching an old favorite while doing mundane things like laundry just makes me happy. 

Pumpkin everything. It's the most delicious time of the year.

Fall decorations. Nothing says happiness like waking up to get your coffee and being greeted by a cute little scarecrow sitting on the counter.

Pumpkin scented candles. They make me all sorts of happy. 

The Autumn in New York music station. Full of old songs that make me swoon and remember why this is my favorite season of all. 

What little things are making you happy lately?


  1. Ooooh well done fries at Chic Fil A sound ahhhhmazing! I'll definitely have to try that out :-D

  2. I am obsessed with fall colors! they are so pretty! x, kenz

  3. How have I never known to order my fries well done? So going to try it! Is The Autumn in New York Station on Pandora? Spotify?

  4. HAHA, I love that you call them 'well done' fries. I always order my fries that way, but we call it 'extra crispy' :) I love the small things, when I'm stressed out or in a funk, I remind myself to enjoy instantly calms me down. xoxo, ganeeban

  5. I agree with a lot of these, especially pumpkin everything (yay!) I find a lot of beauty in nature. We see things like the sky and trees everyday, but I still find them beautiful every time. Something that does not make me happy? You reminded me that I live in Michigan where there are NO Chick-Fil-As! I've heard the company is planning on eventually expanding to Michigan, but for now we literally have none. Oh well at least we have Taco Bell here. Lol.

  6. I love fall, too, and all that comes with it!

  7. What do you edit those photos on? they look so cute :D

  8. Ummm what?! Well-done? That sounds delicious! I was telling Jordan the other day how I wanted to re-watch FNL again. It is such a great show.

  9. Love this! Autumn everything is making me happy :)

  10. Completely agree it is the little things :] I love pumpkin scented candles.

  11. This is a really beautiful post, and one I agree so wholeheartedly with! The small little moments that make up the everyday are some of the happiest that I don't want to forget! xx

  12. Love this- just the little pick-me-up I needed this morning! It's easy to let work and stress take over, but there really are so many things to enjoy/be happy about each day. New fall candles are definitely high on my list right now :)

  13. The little things in life are definitely the stuff that impacts you overall way more than you'd ever realize. Mine is all about the cool weather and my wardrobe options being expanded. That and I've had a concert heavy agenda the last few weeks. (P.S. - this post made me sad I've never had Chick-Fil-A ever!)


say whatcha need to say.
