Chicken Fried

Today I have been reflecting on one of my favorite weekends, Town and Country Days. Even though I am exhausted from the preparations and the actual day, it really is one of the Greatest days of the year! These words of "Chicken Fried" have been replaying in my head all day.

And its funny how it`s the little things in life that mean the most
Not where you live, what you drive or the price tag on your clothes
There`s no dollar sign on a piece of mind; this I`ve come to know


To a little bit of chicken fried
Cold beer on a Friday night
A pair of jeans that fit just right
And the radio up

The band played this song last night and it just personifies Small-Town America, which I love, which got me thinking of the other "little things in life" that I love. Sometimes I get so wrapped up in the list of to-do's or focusing on the negatives of the day, that I overlook all the small joys. So my goal to create a list of little things in life that mean the most to me, and help to instantly put a smile on my face. Who knows how many little joys I will find, so I start with 1-10.

1. Hearing Chicken Fried in a packed street dance, dancing with my friends

2. A warm Grande Nonfat Chai Tea on a chilly morning

3. My super comfy couch

4. The insane amount of body heat my Husband has to warm my ice-cold feet

5. The smell and taste of banana walnut bread

6. My joyfully, happy yellow purse.

7. The tall basil plants that are growing in my herb box

8. Listening to my niece sing her heart out to Praise songs

9. Watching my nephew play football (ps. Can't wait for this season)

10. Kittens Inspired by Kittens-- youtube it!
