ten things making me smile...

Wednesday, October 26, 2011

1 // Heart shaped leaves, and cute boots!
2 // animals making silly faces. I know, I know I mentioned it in my last post, but c'mon, it's the best!
3 // Snuggling brothers in the sun. few things make me smile wider than when the kitties are super sweet to each other!
4 // gathering things and making mini collections where ever I go!
5 // finding photos of fun times. (that would be on the cabin we got with Ivan and Elycia, Kevin carved our initials and the year before we left)
6 // a big pile of pretty, newly thrifted clothes drying after being washed!
7 // big dogs who think they're lap dogs!
8 // putting mushrooms cute places after bringing them home
9 // the feeling of sand between my toes.
10 // cats invading my photos and thinking that they're getting photographed for band pictures. (notice three are looking at the camera and the lead singer is too cool to look.)
What's making you smile today?
xoxo
