I kind of romanticize things a lot. 

I mean, I'm a sap about things; I do things specifically because of the way they feel. Like, I go to Starbucks on a Saturday morning partially because I want the coffee and mostly because I like the way going to Starbucks on a Saturday morning makes me feel really relaxed and cozy.

I dream about traveling almost every single day.

I hold my puppy like a baby and tell her I love her and really, seriously wonder if she knows how much I love her. I think about how thankful I am for her.

I spend a lot of time thinking about how much I love different people in my family and how thankful I am for my friends.

And you know what? To some, it seems kind of silly. Annoying even, maybe. Like, oookay, you can stop being so happy or thinking things are so good all the time. wake upppp.

But you know what else? I never want to stop being a romantic.

I never want to stop thinking about how amazing a sunset over the lake is or how magical the light is at dusk. I never want to stop thinking about how lucky I am to have my sweet puppy and my family and friends.

Life is definitely hard and there are no doubt lots of challenges along the way but man, it makes things so much easier when we appreciate the little things so I never want to stop seeing the little things as really, really big.

Never, never lose this. It is a tough quality to hang onto and life seems to make people cynical. Your life will be so much more beautiful if you can continue to find the beauty in romance in little things.
