The Little Things: Hillary

So often, we get caught up in our day to day routines and forget to appreciate the little things in life.  In my Little Things series, I like to honor the details that are making me happy today. Now, I ask my readers to send me a photo and note about what is making THEM happy today.

Hillary says,

“One thing that brings me joy is an almost-empty nut butter jar. To me, that only means 1 thing: Oats in a Jar [OIAJ]! I recently came to the end of one of my favorite’s, TJ’s Almond Butter with Roasted Flaxseeds. I also had a late-summer farmers’ market peach in my fruit basket, so I just couldn’t resist:

steel cut oats + cinnamon & more flax, 1/2 juicy peach, chopped pecans, apricot jam, and of course… almond butter remnants – oh my!
I am a firm believer of the No Nut Butter Left Behind Act, so OIAJ is something I stand by that makes me happy while not letting any precious nuts go to waste.
It is the little things 🙂 “
