How many little things make you happy? Can just one small detail each day be enough to keep you smiling?
My name is Karen and I’d like to welcome you to the first post on my new blog ‘Little Things Make Smiles’. I believe that no matter how busy life gets we can all find that one little thing each day to make us smile. A positive passing moment or an indulgent hour – it doesn’t really matter as long as you find something each day.
I will be sharing with you the little things that make me happy and I hope that they can give you a ‘Little Things’ moment too. A few ‘Little Things’ about me to introduce myself.
I’m a mum to two girls who are now in middle school and junior high so life is super busy juggling their packed sports and social calendars!
I’m a wife to Josh who I’ve been together with since we were 18 and 22 years on we’ve grown up together and are enjoying fantastic family adventures.
Our cockapoo puppy Rascal keeps me very busy. He loves to go for long walks, visit the dog park and have me kick a ball for him to chase. Once he sits down he loves a cuddle. He is so very loyal and will follow me around the house. Rascal can’t fail to make me smile!
We are a British family from Yorkshire, UK who are living in Northwest Arkansas, USA. Whilst continuing to be proudly British we are embracing American life and enjoying the new experiences we are so fortunate to have.
I’d love it for you to follow my ‘little things make smiles’ moments on here and on my Instagram @littlethingsmakesmiles for regular photos that will give you a reason to smile and maybe ideas to try. I’m looking forward to hearing your ideas too for your moments that we can share with each other as ideas for future posts.
I look forward to writing my posts and hearing from you!
