At the beginning of this year I decided to go easy on the resolutions, so much so that I ended up not having any planned for 2014, I was never good at sticking to them anyway. The only wish I had for myself was to relax more and just be happy. Happy as in finding reasons to smile in even the smallest of things, every single day, no matter what. Giving my past tendency to over-think, overstress and worry about everything, this little exercise of happiness helped tons in improving my general mood, in made me appreciate it all at a different level and I learned to be grateful for every single moment, with all the good and the bad.
“I believe the nicest and sweetest days are not those on which anything very splendid or wonderful or exciting happens but just those that bring simple little pleasures, following one another softly, like pearls slipping off a string.”
This L.M. Montgomery quote kind of defines fall days for me, particularly once the colder weather begins to settle in and all I want to do is hide at home and surround myself with delicious food, coffee, flowers, books and my two favorite boys. It’s days like these when I feel that life is most beautiful when it’s cherished in all its simplicity. It’s days like these when I realize I don’t need much to be happy. And it’s a day like this that I want to share with you today. Because it’s too cold outside to be shooting outfits and because I love it home.
