outfit of the day(bird): it's the little things

leggings ~ Forever 21
boots ~ Ross
tank, coat, scarf, hat ~ thrifted
A list of the little things that have made me happy lately:
~ My son holding my hand without me asking.
~ Finally having the motivation to clean my basement.
~ Meeting new blog friends (or as I like to call them, friends) like Lauren and Ralph.
~ Having someone trust me enough to ask for, and accept my advice.
~ Getting a complimentary free night's stay at the hotel next to my work.
~ Especially right after my kids told me they would love to stay overnight in a hotel.
~ Letting my kids climb the apple tree even though the sign told them not to.
~ Fresh apples.
~ Friends who know what your life is like.
~ Friends who don't yet (but some day will).
~ My sisters' emails.
I could go on, but I'd rather stop now and hear yours...
xo,

  1. So cozy and wonderful is your look Megan. I believe that there's something good in every day, even if the day doesn't seem so good, yet there always will be something, even little thing of good. Love your list.

    1. I can assure you that we paid for the apples. It was just so late in the season that the only apples left were too high for my kids to reach, so they had to climb the trees to get them! We would never steal, and I certainly wouldn't ever teach my kids that was ok to do!

    2. Oh no, sorry, I was only teasing, I know you you wouldnt let your children steal! Sorry, didn't mean to upset you!!!! It was just funny with the reference to apples, I love the phrase scrumping so couldn't resist teasing!!! X

  3. What beautiful things to be grateful for. They mirror my list. Fresh Fall apples are the pinnacle of nature. And your hat is so cute. I've always wanted one exactly like that but doubted I could pull it off. Still do -- I lack your panache. BTW, those leggings remind me of the ones Nora wore recently (10/13) only her triangles were yellow and yours are white. Since they came from the same store, I assume they're the same brand. They look great on both of you.

  4. I think I need those leggings :) Lately I am grateful for feeling safe in my new home! Waking up, seeing the puppy still sleeping, and feeling like home.

  7. Cute leggings! Such a cozy look. I'm loving all of the fall leaves. I missed them the last few years. I'm also loving my daughter getting so excited making new friends at her new school.

  10. Well the best thing that made me happy lately was reading your comment to me yesterday! Brought great tears to my eyes and a crackle in my voice as I read it to HM. Then I said to him, "see, that is why I love blogging so much". And yup we have been blog buddies for 2 years now. Amazing!!!
    All of these thrift shop items are so awesome! Your posing is so cute too. I loved seeing your doggy, too. Have a fun and safe HALLOWEEN! {see ya tomorrow} ♥ + ♥

  11. Aw, I love a good gratitude list. I'm grateful for the connection blogging provides as I can sometimes feel a little isolated from the outside world up here!

  18. Lovely pics--I adore your hat!!! I need to get some of your motivation and clean our basement and my bedroom closet, too! What makes me happy is texting my hubby and three sons and all of us having a good laugh in the middle of the day (all of us in different places, but together in spirit). :) T. http://tickledpinkwoman.blogspot.com

  19. I adore the outfit, perfect for Fall and I love love your list that makes you happy. For me, my son got a letter from his teacher for being good and participating more at school, my husband replace my electric cooktop with gas cooktop :), the sweaters I bought were now markdown and I get the customer service adjusted the price and 1 more day till I get to sleep in because it means not to get up early because of no school/weekend.
