Life's Little Pleasures

Sometimes I take for granted how some of the smallest things that occur in every day life, can actually mean so much and bring me such BIG joy!  Here's a look through my iPhone pics of the week of some of my little pleasures in life.  *Don't forget to check the end of this blog to see the premiere of the Dierks Bentley video I worked on as the makeup artist for that also includes flashbacks of my two boys!! Soooo exciting!!!!!!*


 {Finding a GREAT everyday pink lipstick. YSL Sheer Volupte Sheer Candy 04.}


{Getting a real manicure performed by a real professional (aka, not me!)}



{Having a happy car load of kids on the way to dinner. Equals - I'm not cooking.  Score.}


{Enjoying fresh gardenias picked from my yard and placed in the bathroom.}


{Relaxing under a serene view from the facial table at the spa.}



{My favorite pleasure - being goofy with my kids!!}


{My boys get their 3 seconds of fame running in the middle of this video!}


It's so incredibly neat to see my makeup work come to life on the actors for this video and song directed by Wes Edwards and performed by Dierks Bentley!!!  I just want to pinch myself!  And to see my boys included in there, even if it's only for 3 seconds, warms my heart and makes me prouder than anything!!  

My goal this weekend is to enjoy all of the "little" things that life has to offer that might fly under the radar at times.  Big things come in small packages right??!  

Hope everyone has a wonderful weekend!! What are some of your life's little pleasures??

@Rachel - Thank you so much!! They did have a ball being a part of the behind the scenes action for sure. We've watched that video a lot and paused it on their quick flash of fame!!
@Michelle - I sure appreciate it - glad you liked!
