The Small Things


The Ordinary Lovely started as a promise to myself to celebrate the small things in life. It's so easy to write them off when your mind is programmed to always want bigger and better ... the dream house, far flung holidays, or the elusive perfect day where your children don't ask for snacks every thirteen seconds and no cross words are spoken. However, I wanted to retrain myself to focus on the here and now and the little bits of loveliness that occur each and every day around my home and in my life. These are my favourite ordinary but lovely moments.
