I think we underestimate the little things. I love small things…with meaning. Maybe that’s why I like party favors for a dinner party, a scavenger hunt on the morning of my sons’ birthdays, love notes hidden in a suitcase for a traveling spouse.
The sign above was a gift from my mother when she was visiting for Mother’s Day. At that time, the plans for our arbor, gate and fence were just that. Plans. I spotted the little sign at Terrain, where we were browsing and having lunch. She immediately decided to get it for me and I’ve been holding onto it for months. Finally, it is hung in its proper place.
So, if you’ll indulge me today….this one is for my mom. Who lives rather far away.
Every time I see it, I think of her. So, thanks Mom. I really do think of you every day!
What kind of little thing do you enjoy or like doing for someone else? It’s probably not as small as you think!

So sweet and even sweeter knowing it was from your mom! Everything looks beautiful…and in full bloom!
And I agree often those very small subtle gestures that we don't give much thought to can sometime brighten someone's entire day!
Hope you enjoy this wonderful weather…so my speed:)
How adorable, I love fenced in yards with lovely gates!! No wonder the hydrangea look so good no deer to eat them
