Review: I'm very grateful to have been offered a copy of this little book for review. It's the perfect size to stuff in a purse or even put in a stocking (if you're already planning Christmas gifts like I am!) Each page is one color and in bold black on top is a "little thing" that can make someone's day.
Most of us are quite busy people and it's nice to remember that everyday can be filled with some little moments that make you smile. Let them be recognized and enjoy them for what they are, even if the rest of your day is stressful, etc.
I like the simplistic nature of the book. Each page is what Nancy posts on her website, in terms of style, and it keeps it easy to read, which is always nice. I read this book all in one day, as each page only takes a few minutes to read. However, I think it could be a fun thing to keep out for visiting friends and family...or even make a deal with yourself that you'll only read one (or two) pages a day so it lasts longer. You could even give yourself a challenge: try and notice how many of these little things happen in your day-to-day life and which ones mean the most to you, in terms of putting a smile on your face or making you feel relaxed, etc.
The above page is from Vu's website, where she shared some pages from the book. I wanted to show you the size, set up of the pages, and even some of the "little things" you can expect to find in the book.
I found myself agreeing with almost all of these "little things" but some of my favorites were Having something to look forward too, Accents, Free stuff, and When a baby falls asleep in your arms.
Are any of the above "little things" you enjoy? Share your own "little things" in the comments too!
