Little Happies

Don't you love those little moments in life that bring you small happinesses?  I have long loved the photos that Gail takes on her blog Louisiana Belle.  Recently she mentioned turning some of them into notecards.  I wanted to buy some, but she insisted on sending me a sampling for free.  Aren't they gorgeous? 
Pierce and I will be putting these to good use in our letter writings. Louisiana Belle really captures some amazing shots.  Especially her birds!  Thanks, Gail!

While I cannot begin to touch Louisiana Belle's photographing talents, I did recently catch a shot downtown that I really like, looking out towards the farmer's market in Roanoke.  A picture that brought me a little happy.

What about you, readers?  What small thing has brought you happiness lately?

My feet, although not small, are happy, so that makes me happy :-)

Happy moments with our dogs. That always makes me smile.

Gail is a treasure, and has such a gift! Having said that, I really enjoyed your photograph as well. =)

My happy? Reading. Reading is always a happy.

Your Roanoke picture would make a great notecard!

Lin said...

Oh, those are GREAT photos! And yours as well.

Happy is elusive for me lately. I've been bogged down by work stuff so I have to make it a point to turn off the negative and work on positive. Thanks for the reminder this morning--I'm gonna focus on positive and happy today!

Sally said...

Sweet of your friend to send the note cards!

I completely understand about the photo you took, Lisa. It makes me happy also, and you did a wonderful job.

Wishing you and the family a happy weekend. :)

Your picture is really artistic! The way the fountain is on the left, and very up front, then the long row of smaller green awnings. It also gives a sense of space, almost like 3-D. Her cards are so pretty! I am checking now to see if she is the Gail that I know.

Spending the day with Mia!!...:)JP

I agree, Gail is so talented.

I like her pictures and your picture. :)

I hung the kids school projects on the front door this morning. Seeing their surprised/happy looks (usually we put in on the 'fridge) made me happy. Esp. the teen who was deliberately trying to hide her happy. ;)

troutbirder said...

yes very talented. My spouse also makes notecard from here photography and often donates them to our local library for their fundraisers...:)

Terri said...

She definitely does have a good eye- her photos are always wonderful. I like yours too- the water drops against that red brick..love old buildings. My happy today? Lunch with my sister- she ate while I talked and I ate while she talked. :)

Take a picture on the old town is so interesting. It must be there are so many pleasure there.

I like jokes from friends.

Harry Flashman said...

I like the pictures.

I suppose my small happiness would be that I finally caught my son at home last night and got to talk to him on the phone.

Willow said...

Simple pleasure do fill my heart the most. We had a snow fall last Sunday while the flowers were still blooming and just seeing some of the flowers determined to still open their petals was amazing .

Rob-bear said...

Quite delightful picture from Gail. And you!

I like pictures from different places. And good jokes.

Blessings and Bear hugs!

Gail Dixon said...

Lisa, I am so honored that you wrote this. I'm also happy that there are people still love old-fashioned note writing. It was my pleasure to send these to you. Have a great weekend!

Gail Dixon said...

Forgot to add that I love your shot of the fountain. It would also make a beautiful card!

Tina Fariss Barbour said...

Gail's photography is stunning, and she's a sweet lady. Your photo is great, too. I like the row of buildings set off by the fountain--very nice. My little happy? Larry got me Kathy Reichs' newest book. :-)

Linda said...

Such a good question; it's important to appreciate what made us happy. We drove through a charming town (Little Washington) and went to an art gallery. I even bought a framed landscape in pastels.

I recently bought these scented soy sprinkles from a company called The Pink Zebra. I've put them in my car, and now my car smells like orange slices whenever I'm driving. I LOVE the smell of citrus!
