sweet things

I think I got a little bored with blogging for a while. I had to step back and think of what this blog means to me. The very title puts pressure on me to write every day, when I actually created this blog to post things I made. More of a way to catalog things for myself than to share the every day of my oh so exciting life with friends and family. It's not that I don't have time, I have plenty of that. I was just going through a little funk, and it was all a little personal, but it's all sorted out now. I'm ready to start afresh and do things with myself. Some "just Ashley" things that I've been wanting to do.
So, to ease myself back into blogging, I'm going to make it easy on myself and share some little joys I find are sweet and meaningful to me (in no particular order....)

“Enjoy the little things, for one day you may look back and realize they were the big things.” Robert Brault

How my husband and I never eat dinner at the table, we eat in bed or on the couch while watching a movie or an episode of something.

citrus-scented things

sleeping in a cute nightie

those times when everything is clean and done and you can just lie back and read a book

hot chocolate even in the summer

the tea set my husband got me

how the bus stop is literally right in front of my apartment and right outside my work

playing a song on repeat all day

dark chocolate

getting something I've secretly always wanted

soft pinks

fog-makes me think of Humphrey Bogart

dressing like a classic movie star

flower wreathes



fresh food

So, what about you? What little joys make you feel good? do share!


  1. I love it. :) I am glad that you are back blogging, you're great at it! Jake & I are the same way - dinner is never eaten where it is suppose to be. :)

  2. Thanks for the confidence boost!
