It's the little things

As a busy mum to three little children and a wife to a super busy, often absent husband it is the little things in life, which often keep me going. Each week I will be writing a "it's the little things" post to share with you the things that have made me smile. The little things in life as so important but we often let them slip by. Appreciate the little things. They are precious.

This past week is a little lacking in special little things. I am sure they were there. It was half-term and everything! But we also had some tough stuff to deal with and I think my heart and head were a little bit lost. It's made me realize just how important it is for me to record the little things though, even if life is a bit tricky. Time to reconnect this week.

For now though, my latest little things:

I hope you had a lovely week and if it was half-term for you and/or your children I hope you enjoyed the break. As always my little things are taken with Instagram on my iPhone. Please join me (emilyquinton) and say hello if you are there too!

If you enjoy my little things posts then I know you are going to love my super friend Charis' new site: Life is Beautiful.
