Small Moments Mondays

I’m insanely excited to share with you “Small Moments Mondays,” a new series of posts here at In These Small Moments.

Beginning next Monday, some great friends will stop by and share with us those little moments, whether with their family or friends, that make them truly blissful.  It is these moments, when strung together, that weave this beautiful fabric of life–the things that we hope to always remember.  A nice Cabernet on the patio?  An afternoon eating popsicles?  Friday movie night, complete with popcorn?  Bike rides on Sunday evenings? For each of us, these moments are unique and precious.  But for all of us, they are precisely what make life worth living.

It’s no secret that life gets far too busy–and it’s so easy to get wrapped up in the laundry that needs to be done, groceries that must be purchased, and toys that still need to be put away.

But the small moments make it all worth it.  These delicious moments renew and encourage us.

So often, I catch myself focusing too much on the upcoming weekend.  Thoughts of the longer days when my little family is all together are so seductive that I find myself almost trudging through the week.  Reminding myself to see the beauty in the small moments means enjoying and savoring so much more. 

This week, Katie and I folded laundry together, chatting as we went along.  She turned to me, socks in hand, and said, “I really, really love you, Mommy.”  Swoon.  Moments like that simply make me weak.  They are why I am here.  They are what I hope to remember once she is grown and gone.

I am truly looking forward to the upcoming weeks.  I am so eager to hear the stories that make each of my amazing friends simply weak with happiness. 

Thank you in advance, my dear friends!


  1. What a lovely idea! As life gets busy, it is such a challenge to recognize these moments when they happen. This is brilliant. :)

    Nichole this is a great idea! Here are a few recent "Small Moments" for me. We went to spend the day with friends who were camping in Cisco Grove, 25 miles before Truckee. Manny was dirt biking, Max was within ear shot taking a nap and I was enjoying a nice afternoon book. It was peaceful and fun all in one! Our evening walks are always a slice of heaven while Max rides in front of us on his bike.
