My Two Cents

Day 8: A piece of advice you have for others. Anything at all. 

So I am about to give you my two cents. You didn't ask for it? Oh...sorry I am not sorry! 

So if i had some advice for anyone at would be this. 

Enjoy the little things. 

It is really quite that simple. The little things in life all add up to your happiness. The weeknights on the couch with your husband watching TV. The afternoon outside watching your dogs chase a butterfly. That afternoon shopping with your mom. Playing a game with your nieces and nephews. That late night talk with your grandma. 

Life is so short and so precious. You never know when it will be the last time you see someone. We aren't all going to be around forever. It is the little things that you miss when someone is gone. 

Always tell your family that you love them when you see them or before hanging up the phone. Do not go to bed angry at your spouse. Remind yourself that any little thing that you do, even if not the most exciting, is special and precious time spent with that person.

Take the time to give that person a random kiss!

To pet your dogs when they are waiting unpatiently for your attention. 

To play that extra round of ski ball, just because it is fun!

To steal snuggles from a pouty puppy!

To play in the snow (or dance in the rain)

To enjoy a beautiful sunset


  1. Great advice!! I am trying to do this more every day... Especially when I am having a bad day, stopping to enjoy something simple, makes it not so bad =)

  2. Nadine - these daily deep linkup posts are amazing! I definitely agree that you should cuddle with the crazy puggles more often...I'll send mine your way to cuddle as well!

  3. I agree with you. It really is that simple but many people forget!

  4. The little things are definitely where it's at! Great post.
