Enjoying the Little Things


I am a huge believer in the little things and truly enjoy the simple pleasures of life and yet again I am reminded of the love I have in my life. I have many ‘little things’ that I am grateful for (you can see a few of them here) and one of them is soaking up as much of the beach life as I can now that the ocean is literally right outside my door. I mean, who can really say that? 

With my birthday just almost a week away and everyone asking what I’d like I finally decided what I wanted: patio furniture for our home. We have this lovely patio space and it never gets used because we haven’t put anything out there. So, today as I was walking home I saw my husband greet me with Murphy (as he does every day) but this time he was sitting on our new patio furniture thanks to his parents! My in laws are amazing and always do such sweet things for the both of us. I should also note that he spent his day off picking it up, assembling it, and even bought decorative pillows and an outdoor rug all by himself! I am so happy with our new furniture and I’m excited to begin decorating outside!

See what we got!

And here are some of the pinspirations that I have in mind for future decorating...

Have a happy hump day!


  1. Aww, that's so exciting! I love to enjoy the little things like this. Patio furniture would make me happy, too! I'm hoping to have a nice little outdoor space in my next home, and great patio furniture is on my wish list. Those ideas you pinned are awesome, especially the fire bowls.

  2. Totally makes me happy inside. I don’t need much but one big thing on my ‘to do’ list is get our house fully decorated and this is one step in the right direction :) I’m always pinning and these guys stood out to me the most on my search for fun DIY patio ideas. And my husband always wanted a fire pit and since we live in an apt I was eager to find the next best thing.
