Recently, I've been doing a lot of thinking and not a lot of doing. So, I decided to put the laptop to one side, put on my hiking boots and enjoy the sunshine. We went for a lovely, long walk with the cheeky Kimi in tow...

It was also the perfect excuse to wear my floral headband and try to recreate the up do Lily Melrose shared on Youtube, here. It's such a quick, easy hair style to do, plus it stayed in place all day without any bobby pins or fuss!

It's so easy to forget to enjoy the little things in life and the things we may take for granted. I rarely take a moment to appreciate the day and the present. It has become second nature to live our lives a few moments ahead - too busy to take joy in simplicity. I, for one, tend to forget there is always a reason to smile. On this day, the weather, nature and a cheerful beagle were my reasons. So, my plan is to look for the positive in each day, 'even if some days you have to look a little harder'.

I still find each day too short for all the thoughts I want to think, all the walks I want to take, 
all the books I want to read, and all the friends I want to see.
