Ahh, the little things!

Hey! So, this is my first post. Valerie has been so diligent with posting (and having a great time doing it) that it has allowed for me to focus on a few other things while she types away. However, it’s time I get involved! Right now, Valerie is knee deep in an new design project, so I thought I’d take this opportunity to get my feet wet in the world of blogging and say hello. We are really excited about this blog and sharing our thoughts, feelings, ideas, inspirations, projects, and so on.

One of the many things that Valerie excels at, but I’m finding I have a hard time with, is knowing what, and what not, to blog about. In everything we do, she sees a blog opportunity. But, on the other hand, I'm not so sure you would want to hear about the turkey sandwich and diet coke I had for lunch. Therefore, I think I’ve been waiting for something huge to come along to share with the world : )

However, through this mini-struggle, and more specifically, throughout our everyday lives, I’ve learned that it’s not about the large seemingly profound things, but actually more about the little things.

So, something I’m going to be focusing on is remembering how important the little details are and how amazing it is to find beauty and inspiration in the smaller, or less world-changing and earth-shattering, things. Given this, I came across something small, (actually two small things) this week worthy of sharing in this blog post.

Our two cats silhouetted in the window.

So, I’m curious. What inspires you? What tiny thing, object, etc. made you smile today?
