I’ve been meaning to make a Weekly Small Pleasures post for several weeks now. But somehow I’ve been too busy during Sundays, when I typically post. It’s always nice to look back on the week, or notice in the moment the small things that make us happy and feel grateful for them. Today, I’m including a few pleasures from past weeks as well.
1. Making my favourite homemade breakfast that never gets old. Avocado and fried egg over thin bagel.
Never gets old. The best homemade breakfast: O'Doughs gf bagel thins topped with avocado, Himalayan pink salt, over easy egg (cooked in @kerrygoldusa butter), oregano and more recently topped with @traderjoes new "everything but the bagel sesame seasoning". Then, accompanied with a handful of fresh blueberries, @taylors English breakfast tea, and two squares of super dark chocolate. I can die happy. #food #breakfast #homemade #healthyliving #avocado #eggs #chocoholic #foodie #organic #glutenfree #smallpleasures
2. Nice spring weather. Not too hot, some cloudy skies, lush green, lake blues, nocturnal thunderstorms… Lovely.
3. The excitement of starting a new hobby and it being finally learning an instrument, something I’ve been wanting to do since forever.
Guess who's learning to play the mandolin?? So excited! Finally got my first lesson today and then serenaded passerbyers on the river trail with my two chords. And not to brag (ok yes to brag) but the teacher said "you're a natural, and I'm not just saying that." 🎶 #music #mandolin #austin #atx #musicalfamily #happy #newhobby
4. This song:
5. Finally finding awesome places to eat in Austin.
6. A couple visits to my favourite local bakery.
7. Trail solo walks.

Share your happiness!
I find that the small things that make us happy every day are easily forgotten.
This blog event is simply about remembering and sharing those small things that made you happy during the week; things that made you smile, made you laugh, made you do a happy dance, made your heart smile…
