The little things

Enjoy the little things in life...
...for one day you'll look back and realize they were the big things!

I love that saying. ♥
I think there is a lot of truth in it. I love the little things. Little things make me happy. :) A plant growing a new flower, a message from a friend, chocolate in the right moment, a cup of tea in the evening, the first snow, when the sun bursts out of a gray cloud ceiling.... I don't need my boyfriend to make a big gesture to show me he cares about me. The little things, not planned or prepared, are those, which really make me feel loved.

Like this cute plant, growing and sitting on the windowsill, looking at the world. Isn't it cute? :) :) I took the photo while I was visiting a good friend in Strasbourg. :)

There is always beauty around you, you just have to start looking. :) Every time I discover something I think is beautiful and might be invisible to other eyes, I'll show it to you. :)
Have you also discovered little beautiful spots all around the world that make you smile when you look at them? I would love to hear about it!

  5. Hi,
    i am grateful that you've showed me your blog when I was in a period where I tried to clear up my stuff and get rid of whatever could not serve me.
    So I had already started to throw away a lot of my little travel memories which seemed useless little waste to me. But reading your blog I got a bit softer and now some of my most precious memories are still with me :):-)
    doedle :-)
