Five Things Friday ~ #9

It is Friday!  

That means it is time to review the five things that brought the biggest smile to me...  If you look back over my FTF posts, you will see that most are everyday, normal things that occur.  But if you approach each day with anticipation and excitement, you will see that they really are not "normal" things, but each a special, unique event...  Take time to enjoy the moment!

#1)  Time spent with a friend-cousin catching up after nearly two years of not seeing each other...

#2)  Hot Air Balloons.  Everywhere. More than 600 of them!  Every shape. Every size. Every color.  Amazing!  
This is just one of the more than 300 pictures we took.

#3)   A leisurely drive home via the scenic route - and it really didn't take any longer to get home... less traffic and a slower pace.  The colors through Taos and Cimmaron Canyons were stunning... pictures don't really do justice.

#4)  A Flower-girl with her pearls and sun glasses

#5) The completed repair of a well-loved quilt.  This block needed the most help.  All it required was some patience and hand-sewing to have it repaired and looking as good as new.  

Look around at life... is life happening around you? Are you missing out on the many simple, special moments taking place right where you are?  Be present. S.M.I.L.E.!

Have a great weekend!  And don't forget to smile! ;) Oh, and don't forget to visit Amanda over at Gypsy Moon Quilt Co.

  1. Happy Friday, Melva! What a fun week! I haven't seen a hot air balloon since I was little. I bet that was a magical sight to see! You did such a beautiful job on the quilt - you're definitely going to bring a lot of happiness to its owner! Hope you have a wonderful weekend. 😊
