It’s the little things…

A few years back I had a little series on the blog called “It’s the little things…” where I just shared little things that made me happy. It was mostly pictures of my cats back then… I hadn’t posted anything related to that series for a while so when I cleaned up all the tags I use at the beginning of the year that was one that got deleted. In an effort to share more of my daily life, and take more photos of just everyday things I’m bringing that tag back.

These photos were taken earlier in the week. Jeff and I had plans to go to the mall but when he arrived at my door he pointed toward the sky and said “What do you think? Wanna go to watch the sunset and take pictures?” Of course, I did! I would I ran upstairs, grabbed my camera and off we headed to the frozen wonderland that is Lake Erie this time of the year. 
Within minutes my fingers ached because they were so cold but we still stayed and shot.  I’m so very thankful to have found someone who enjoys spur of the moment adventures just as much as I do, and someone who will voluntarily go to the freezing cold beach just to get a few shots. We’re a pretty awesome team. I want a lifetime of moments like this with him.

In the car on the ride home from the mall this night, I panicked. My memory doesn’t seem to be that great anymore, or at least I feel like I’m having trouble remembering things. “I can’t think of any memories that don’t have a photo attached” I cried. Maybe it’s just because I take SO many photos but I have to think pretty hard to think of moments where I don’t have at least one photo tucked away somewhere that is related to it.

The next day Jeff said something along the lines of “I had a lot of fun yesterday!” My response was “I don’t remember what we did…?” A few minutes passed before I remembered what had happened in the car the night previous. We both had a good chuckle about the irony of that.

I don’t know if my memory is getting foggy or if I have unrealistic expectations and just feel like I should remember every single thing but hopefully this series will help me feel a bit more at ease. Evenings like this one I never want to forget.
