The little things.

Do you remember the Friends episode when Ross is trying to get ugly naked guy's apartment and he sends mini muffins? But the other prospects send huge fruit baskets and Ross says, "I can't believe that didn't work! A guy from work brought in mini muffins and it was the best day." And Chandler replies, "Your life makes me sad."
I had that kind of day yesterday. We got a new coffee machine at work that makes lattes and expresso and I had the BEST caramel latte and I was so excited about it. And I realized that my life is kinda sad when that is one of the highlights. I guess it's just the little things in life that make me happy.

New England Girl said...

I love that sort of attitude... appreciating and loving the small things! There are so many tiny details to be excited and happy about... if you focus on such "small" things to make you happy, it's pretty tough to be in a bad mood! :) Plus, who wouldn't be excited about a new coffee machine?!

Brittany Ann said...

Oh, I relate! Seriously, no line at the copy machine, and I'm in 7th Heaven.

Ah Chandler. He was always so funny. I am all about the small things!

katie + bret said...

Oh hunny, hush your mouth! That is not sad, it's GREAT that indeed, "the little things" have the ability to make you happy. It's the little things that get us through life so soak them all up and have an extra large latte!

THE Stephanie said...

Oh no, it's actually great!! Great that you don't need anything big to make you happy - just the simple things!

Like this morning, my poor hubby left his coffee at home, so what did I do? I drank the rest of it. :) Warmed it up in the microwave and had half a cup of coffee, but it was the best coffee ever! It was made with love, I guess... LOL

Katie said...

I think the fact that you got excited about that says good things about you! Its great that you find joy in the small things!!

Fatbrideslim said...

This reply is a little late but I've only just found your blog. I saw this episode just last night! How funny!

The little things are the BEST. If you can't appreciate them, what can you appreciate? :)
