JOIN: Celebrating the Small Things


Every Saturday, join me as I CELEBRATE This Week 
with Ruth Ayres from Discover. Play. Build.


Sometimes it's the small things. Most of the time it's the small things. Last weekend we were in Orlando, Florida. It was a random, spur-of-the-moment trip that we booked only two weeks in advance. My husband is a huge football fan and got tickets to watch the athletes competing in the Probowl as they practiced...and we also were able to spend two days at Disney. It was a nice break to the cold, dreary days of Chicago winter. 

We have some great memories from our trip: surprising the kids, meeting Richard Sherman and Ha Ha Clinton-Dix's family and Tinkerbell, fighting Darth Vader AND Kylo Ren, riding the Rockin' Rollercoaster twice but as I flipped through the pictures, these stood out to me. We went to Disney Springs one night to talk around and get cupcakes at my favorite vegan bakery and our six-year-old had a football that he bought at ESPN Wide World of Sports. We were busy and walking and moving all day but he just wanted to play

We found some benches near the water and maybe we should have told them this was a bad place to play...it was near the water and people were walking by...but we didn't and my husband joined in and it was so fun. 



The pictures are a little hard to see but I have the memory in my heart. As the kids get older I've realized how these memories are so much more important than things we buy them or places we take them. I'm glad we have them and I'm celebrating them today.

Do you have small moments to share and celebrate this week?

  1. Keep making those memories together. They grow up all too quickly.
