Leap Day List of Lovelies

     Today is Leap Day! A day that only comes around every 4 years. I had envisioned a very special day full of very special everything. But life tends to not play by my rules or plans. 

     Little Man is sick with a stomach bug of some sort. So instead of doing something fun and spontaneous, I am scrubbing puke out of the carpet and off of everything we own while administering electrolytes, liquids, probiotics, and cuddles.

     I feel badly for my little baby. And I feel kinda lousy in general. So I decided to make a Leap Day List of Lovelies. A list of some of the little things that make me smile.

  • Warm sunshine
  • Gentle rain
  • Good books
  • Big trees
  • Porch swings
  • Cups of coffee
  • Orange and spice tea
  • Fragrant flowers
  • Real mail that isn't junk or bills
  • Fresh herbs
  • Pretty food
  • Dessert
  • Coffee Crisp candy bars (there is a lot of food on this list)
  • Listening to Banana Pancakes by Jack Johnson
  • Snuggly blankets
  • The first day its warm enough to wear flip flops
  • The first day its cool enough to wear boots
  • Hearing my kids laughing and playing together
  • When Hubby puts his arms around me
  • Random texts
  • Realizing that life is full of things to smile about and embracing the smiles


  1. Nice list, good to write down the little things that make you happy!
