The Little Things Are Everything


If you break it down I am really a simple gal.  I like reading my 3 year old a story, holding my husbands hand and eating cake.  I love hugs, watching my husband and daughter when they don't know it and being missed by someone I love.
Life can get so chaotic that you forget to take time to appreciate the little things.  As a food blogger I do a lot of baking.  My 3 year old has declared herself the official taste tester in the house.  So, everything I bake she has to get a taste of before its ready.  

Cakes, cookies, brownies....  So every time I prepare a baked good, I stop what I m doing once the batter is mixed.  I grab 2 spoons and call my Munchkin to the kitchen.  We each take a taste of the batter and step back and enjoy it together.

It sounds so simple, but we truly enjoy that moment.  I like to watch her light up as she gets a taste of that sweet treat.  The expressions are always priceless and something I will remember forever. Like I said... The Little Things are so important.  

My favorite moment taste testing was when we were making my sugar cookies last January we had a taste of the dough, I turned around and when I looked back she was up on her step stool digging her spoon into the stand mixer for a second taste.  Compliments to the baker, I guess.

How do you take the time to step back and appreciate the Little Things?
