simple things.

We are big believers in showing gratitude for the simple things in life. When the going gets tough, if you can look around and still find beauty in the smaller bits of life, you can weather even the fiercest of storms. That's why we've decided to create a weekly series where we give thanks for the simple things that make our lives a little brighter.
simplethings1 Friends, which we've been tearing through on weeknights. We're also grateful for the friend who lent the entire series to us.
simplethings2 This brush, which helped us clean our apartment to a sparkling shine.
simplethings3 This thermos, which made an appearance at our wedding and now has a home on our dining room table + this lampshade, which has brought new life to this little corner.
simplethings5 These flowers, which I picked from our garden and add a special sort of happiness to our side table.
simplethings6 These tissues, because it's a bummer to be sick, but it helps when the supplies are cute.

Other simple things we're grateful for:
  • This song, which we've shamelessly been listening to after it became the soundtrack of a very memorable moment in New Girl.
  • Call the Midwife, which is an incredible show about British midwives in the 50s. It's considered a drama (and believe me, there have been tears on my end), but it's really spectacular and parts of it are so funny! 
  • Trader Joe's potato chips, because there is no other potato chip like them.
  • Coca-Cola, when have I ever not been grateful for you? (And with TJ's potato chips, don't get me started.)


  1. Thanks for sharing. I think the simple things are usually the best things. I am going to have to try the Trader Joe chips. And I think Call the Midwife is one of the best shows ever. XXOO
