The Perfect Gift

Sometimes I dread buying people gifts because I try really hard to find something that they would like. I am pretty good at remembering random things people say that they want, so sometimes I am lucky and can find just that. But other times I am left searching tons of stores for a month. I literally looked for a particular "just because" gift for 2 months. Something about giving a person a gift they love gives me so much joy.

But sometimes the greatest gift is a perfect moment, one that you makes you smile from ear to ear. My latest simple, but perfect moments:
-Laying on your shoulder on Sunday evening helping you with your Sudoku,
-You re-enacting my favorite scene from Superbad,
-When people in your network group say, "I've heard so much about his wife, so glad to finally meet you"

These are the moments that I hope I will remember when I am old and gray, especially the Superbad one. It makes me fall in love with you a little more each time.

Life gets busy and we sometimes forget to give ourselves a gift every now and then. It doesn't have to be something material, but remember to take time for yourself and do something you love. I took some time out to take photos of our little cousin, a little something for his mom, but also for me. Capturing his innocence.

**The first picture looks a little grainy, I may have to update it tonight with the actual file.
