celebrate the little things banner

On a whim, I signed up for a little blogger Christmas gift exchange — The Great Christmas Exchange. I loved scouring my match’s blog for clues about what she would most enjoy. And I was seriously delighted to receive my gift in the mail from Olya!

This little banner from Urban Bird & Co. has been on my Etsy wish list for a few years! The timing of this gift was perfect.

Never has celebrating the little things been more important to us. My temptation is to, of course, lament that the big things I’ve so desperately wanted that haven’t happened. But I can’t stay down for too long when I consider the other little joys I get to experience on a daily basis.

We celebrated our domestic adoption home study being completed by going to one of our favorite food + drink spots. We celebrated New Years at home an hour after Dan was off work with cupcakes and paper hats I printed and made a few hours before. We celebrate Dan’s days off work by too many hours of The Taste, Phase 10, and Wii. It’s a joy to be able to work at home. It’s a joy to simply have a home I love!

The banner hangs above the key hook mirror inside our front door. I see it while I sit on the couch and when I go out the front door. This sweet sentiment has meant much to me.
