It's the little things.... ETA

So I've always been an optimist and every small good thing can outway any big bad thing in my life and make me happy again.

Today I feel a bit dorky about it but here goes:

Dh and I are FINALLY, after 11 years together, getting a matching bedroom set!! It's never been really important. I've never been bothered by the fact that we had mismatched items. I've even been content without ever having a headboard!

Now that its coming today in the other hand, I feel like a little kid at Christmas!!


Do any of you have stories of the really little things that have just made you soooo happy?

ETA: I added the first 2 pics. Got these all cleaned up now just need dh to bring home the rest and get it scrubbed down!

Lol I was excited when I got my headboard and our electric fireplace/ entertainment center. But I'm a dork too!

Lol my husband teases me for it but I love the fact the a funny squirrel or a really pretty flower can make my day!

I wouldn't like being grumpy!

I completely understand what you mean. I like still getting excited over the little things in life. Were moving into our own house, which is huge and I am super excited, but oddly enough I am even more excited about a day camp (which I am working at) coming up. We prepare for months for it and I am always excited, and mildly dread it. Sometimes parents worry for no reason.

One of the little things that always make me the happiest is just hearing my dh laugh at some dumb thing I say and knowing he's laughing with me and not at me ... because I'm laughing first!

Another little thing that really makes me happy, dh making me a cup of coffee & bringing it to me on a Saturday morning in bed!
