The Little Things

This 4th of July weekend will be spent enjoying the little things in life...and one very special day for my husband and I.

It's sometimes the small things that make you appreciate long summer weekends, and mornings spent slept in...and this 4th of July is no different. This weekend, hubby and I are lucky enough to be able to relax and spend time with each other, enjoying good friends, good food...and for once in Washington, what appears to be good weather. Our holiday weekend will consist of warm summer days (finally!), barbecuing with friends, fireworks....and our first wedding anniversary.

This is the first time in over six years of being together that Derek and I will get to spend any kind of anniversary together, and for it to be our first wedding anniversary is pretty special...and a perfect reason to take the time to reflect over the little things that have made this past year so special, adventurous and amazing for us. From finally getting to see each other more than once a month or so to moving across the country, and even that extra line on the pregnancy test that changed our lives forever, this year has been one crazy and phenomenal ride. And while our year has been filled with some pretty major events, it's still the small things like cooking dinner for two, and lounging on the couch watching Doogie Howser every night, that have made this year so incredibly memorable for me.

I hope you all are able to take five minutes and reflect on what makes your life so special, whether you're celebrating an anniversary or not. This particular weekend has always been filled with fond family memories for me, and it's always the perfect opportunity to reflect on the little things that make life, love and family so incredible.
