it's the little things!

hey y'all! The Little Things linkup is back! I'm excited to start up these posts again and focus with you on the small blessings in my week. If you haven't linked up with me yet, don't be afraid to join in! Just post about the small ways your week was made better and link up with me each Friday! 

(Just a reminder to please keep your linked posts on the topic of "the little things"!) 

I only have Instagram pictures for you this week-- it's been a busy one. But I hope to pick up my DSLR more next week to record my little things.

Sushi night! We taught Chris' parents and Naval Academy roommate how to make sushi last night. We've been making our own sushi for a few months now and gosh, it's good. Especially that homemade spicy mayo. I got lots of requests for a recipe/tutorial on the blog, so keep an eye out for that soon. 

Dates with my love. Chris' parents are in town, so we got two date nights this week. What a blessing. Alone time with him is precious these days and we savored every minute. 

Happy colored canvases. I got some time in the studio this week and started working on my inventory for the shop-reopening! Tiny, bright-colored canvases have been fun for me to see on my studio desk after a long time of no painting. 

Me time. I got to visit my hair salon and get my hair cut last night. I had a few minutes afterwards to stroll through Target and that alone time was pretty rejuvenating for this mama. 

Silas' grandma.  I love seeing Chris' mom loving on Si. And it makes me so excited to introduce him to his aunts, uncles and cousins in Maryland when we visit in a few weeks. I love seeing our loved ones with our sweet boy. 

So, what little things have been blessing you this week? Or what big things are making you smile and feel thankful?
