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.
When we were contacted to participate in Olivari's "Year Of Little" campaign we knew it was a perfect fit.  You can read all about the campaign here on Olivari's Facebook page

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.

So what do I think of Olivari, you are wondering?  Olivari really goes further to bring you a quality product.  Taking care to pay attention to the little things when producing their product, which yields a smooth enough taste to use in homemade salad dressings, pesto and so much more.   Then they added the pop-up bottle  spout.  What great attention to detail.  What thrills me even more is that it is available right in our local grocery stores and Wal-Mart.  Y'all know I am frugal, so it brings me great joy to tell you that this fabulous olive oil is moderately priced too!  SCORE.

Make sure you pop over to Olivari's Facebook Page and learn more about the Year of Little, get great recipes and enjoy fabulous videos.

As a bonus here is a handy guide to pitting an olive.  Note:  Step away from the corkscrew!

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