Little Things

Living in a fast pace society, we often forget to slow down to treasure and enjoy what we have.

Its no secret that I LOOVE shoes, bags, makeup, clothes & so on...
I is {shamelessly} materialistic

But, often times, its the little things that bring me the MOST
excitement and happiness.

Little things like these:

When my 5 yr old baby brother kisses me after I have read him his bedtime story, and whispers,
"Jessie, your my favour-wit fwend"= Jessie, you are my favourite friend
eek! {My cold, little, black heart melts}

When I make eye contact with a stranger, and we exchange smiles.
Its amazing how good it feels to receive a sincere smile. It brightens up my day.
Smiles are much better than scowls, so wear one. :) :)

The comfort & warmth of my boyfriend's hugs. I could be in the worst of moods, crying floods of tears, but once I'm held tight in his arms, I feel safe, calm and comforted.

Life is too good, remember to cherish the little things.

Have a great weekend!

hey jess! cute post :) k i shouldn't be commenting at this hour.. but whatevs i can't sleep :( i love moments like those! i so appreciate them even more when they occur now because sometimes they hardly come by. i'd say for me it'd be nature.. at it's best. just appreciating the sunsets/sunrises, or for instance.. when i travel to the islands (tofino, sunshine coast etc), i stay in an area where i am completely surrounded by nature and away from everything else, and spend the nights just gazing at the stars, over hot chocolate. my friends find me silly that i am so fascinated by the massive amount of stars away from the city -.-.. oh and definitely when my baby cousins give me hugs & kisses :)

Aww your post is so cute. It brought a smile to my face. Hehe, what makes me happy? Hmm, the smell of freshly cut grass on a summer day. The dampness in the atmosphere RIGHT before it's about to rain. Oh and a good sale at the mall! Haha :)

SO cute! I love this post : ) I have a 5 year old baby brother too ...what a coincidence! I only get to see him 1 or 2x a year, which is sad because I just love him to death. Your post reminded me of him and put a smile on my face.
