I love photos.  I like to capture the every day in pictures.  One of my hobbies is to learn more about photography and what settings on my Canon captures the moment exactly as I saw it.  I cherish the many photos I have taken over the years, and I love sitting with a cup of hot tea and reminiscing.  I have started following a few blogs lately that simply inspire me.  So, thank you to all these talented artists.

To challenge myself, I decided to start capturing one moment a day that just makes me smile.  So, I started a new account on Instagram called simplylifestuff.   Feel free to follow me.  One photo a day posted to Instagram and a photo dump on the blog on Fridays with #makesmesmile.  Here we go:

Enjoying after working outdoors in the flower beds

Early morning sun shining on the mountains – view from my kitchen

Sharing flavored sugar with a friend to celebrate her Bday

Enjoying a glass of wine during dinner prep

New bright pillows in anticipation of spring

Snow is in our forecast for tomorrow.  So, I leave you with a few additional photos.


I hope you have a wonderful weekend.  I see some sledding in our future.  What made you smile today?  Sometimes, it can just be the little things.
