The little things mean a lot

I have had the song with the same title stuck in my head for weeks now. I love the sweet tune and the beautiful words. It sums up my view on the world so perfectly. The little things really do mean a lot.

It is the bloke bringing me a drink of water when I have forgotten one,even though he has already sat down.

It is my busy toddler stopping for a minute and asking for a cuddle from his mummy

It is the baby falling asleep in my arms, content and happy in a milky daze

It is walking hand in hand to the coffee shop on a cold sunday afternoon because we really fancy a cake

It is fitting back into some jeans that you were ready to discard into the 'never gonna happen' pile

It is the way the boys fall asleep within seconds of each other at nap time, and wake up within seconds too, 
even when they are in different rooms

It is those mornings when you are shattered and they lie in until half past 9

It is holding hands in the cinema whilst the  children are being looked after by the grandparents.

It is bringing the children into bed when they wake and having a snuggle together before we face the day.

It is talking about the future together.

It really is the little things that make the big things.  Life is a series of little moments, looks, touches and kisses on the forehead, but combined they make ordinary life that bit more special.


  1. Lovely photos Bex. Such lovely natural shots of you all. And it's certainly the little things in life that are most important. x

  2. Greetings from Colorado! I'm bored to tears at work so I decided to browse your blog on my iphone during lunch break.
    I love the knowledge you provide here and can't wait to take
    a look when I get home. I'm shocked at how quick
    your blog loaded on my phone .. I'm not even using
