15 Little Things That Make Life Grand

1. That deliciously crunchy cutting sound that freshly sharpened skates make on a clean sheet of ice

2. A drawer full of black tank tops so you don’t have to keep searching through the dirty laundry for a mostly-clean one 

3. Waking up slowly without an alarm

4. Finishing an entire cup of coffee while it’s still hot

5. Free parking on weekends

6. Actually finding the random/obscure spice needed for a recipe in the spice rack so you don’t have to make a trip to the store to buy some

7. A perfectly ripe banana

8. The look and feel of a well loved book with a cracked spine, dog-eared corners, annotations in the margins, and highlighted sections. Beautiful. 

9. A brand new pack of sharpies – oh the possibilities! 

10. Opening an old glue stick and finding that it’s still usable

11. Finding a stash of bobby pins when you’re running low

12. Getting a full night of blissful, uninterrupted sleep (after having a baby, I will never, ever take this for granted again)

13. New Stuff You Missed in History Class episodes on Mondays and Wednesdays for the drive to work (& the new casual Friday minisodes)

14. Watching your toddler proudly put money in his piggy bank

15. Going to bed on Sunday night, knowing you’re prepared as heck for Monday
