25 Lovely Things


I love finding joy in the small, simple things. But I don’t do it often enough.

I’m learning… slowly… that thankfulness ushers in a host of small, sweet miracles that are worth dwelling on, celebrating, and reveling in.

Today I’m creating a new tag – 25 Lovely Things. Want to join me?

  • If you a reader just stopping by, I would love it if you’d post three lovely things in the comments below!
  • If you’re a fellow blogger, I tag YOU to find and post 25 Lovely Things!
