The small things.

Welcome to Monday, where Kayla didn't have time last night to write a weekend recap post because her power was out. So, I give you a fun fall picture, instead.
Whaaat? ;)


I was going through pictures during mine and Caleb's engagement and this one just made me stop in my tracks and smile so big. Honestly, I remember this whole day like it was yesterday. It was Caleb's 24th birthday and I took the day off work to celebrate. I remember us leaving our phones inside most of the day, and just being with each other. We even headed outside to play in the gorgeous fall leaves.

I can find joy in the smallest of things when Caleb is around.
Like last night, when the power was out, he lit all the candles and we reclined together on the new couches. We ended up just talking about life, laughing so hard, making silly home videos because we got so slap happy, and eating way too many candy cane kisses (those things will be the death of me this Christmas season)!!

It's moments like this I want to remember most when I'm old and gray. He makes my life happy. I promise, when you choose to surround yourself with happy people, you have a better life.

Just a fun thought to leave you with for this Monday.
