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.
“For the “little things” project, I wanted to add an anecdote. I actually don’t consider it to be a ‘little thing’ but rather something quite exciting for me on several different levels. Last year, I had my ACL reconstructed and thanks to that, I’ve been able to enjoy many of the activities that I had scratched off as possibilities. One of those activities was backpacking. So, it was with great pleasure that I managed to do a short (but steep!) overnight in October. However, I was SO sad that the soles of my boots, which I’d had since 2001, started to fall apart (a small detail that I did not notice until we were at our campsite!). I made it back down the next day and the shoes survived, but I went directly to REI to ask about my shoes. They sent them to their “repair guy” who fixed my boots! I am so excited – not only do these shoes bring back memories of where I’ve been and trekked in them (Grand Canyon, the Cascades in WA State, Ecuador, Colorado…) but they represent the possibility of so many more adventures.”
You, too, can be a part of “The Little Things: Reader Submissions” page! Send me a photo of one of the “little things” making you happy today, along with a short note. You do NOT have to be a blogger to take part, but if you have a blog, I will link back to you. Send your submissions to firstname.lastname@example.org, with “The Little Things” as the subject line!
