Hello Lincolnshire. Little Joy Designs here.
Sometimes we forget to appreciate the little things.
You've heard it before 'the best things in life are free' but hey a little reminder never hurt anyone did it?
And so here is a list of small, almost insignificant and simple things that'll have you spiralling up into a cloud of warm, fuzzy and happy.
- Bubble baths
- Classic Disney films
- The sound of a perfect high-five
- Running though Autumn leaves
- The crunchy sound of those Autumn leaves
