five simple joys

The dozen mini macaroons from the local bakery Rocket Baby, because they were delicious, reminded me of Paris, and were purchased by my parents for our house warming party.  

The cups of coffee drinks from Smith Bros, because they were purchased from my Grandpa's favorite fish cafe in Port Washington, WI.  My mom, Paul, and I had a delicious perch lunch there and remembered my Papa while walking along the lake.  I know he would have loved being there with us. 

The baby tree in Washington Park with the unexpected pink flowers. 

The emptied Wheat Thins box wrapped in yellow paper that contained a care package from my JV roomie - complete with a thoughtful card and pumpkin treat making supplies.  Kara has the most creative (and environmentally friendly) shipping techniques.

The fake sunflowers in Cedarburg that looked so pretty photographed.  Mom, Paul and I stopped by this small town on our adventure last weekend, and my mom and I reminisced about past visits and thought about how much my grandma would have loved being there.  

Sometimes the simple joys can be the best - and the easiest to overlook.  What simple joys are you thankful for today?
