This prompt is based off of one of the 2010 prompts, Ordinary Joy. I love this topic because I love taking a moment, taking a breath, and remembering that the good stuff, the really good stuff, isn’t boastful.
Ordinary Sparkling Moments: Reflect on the ordinary moments that bring you joy. What moments would you like to relish in the coming year?

Family dinners. Buy One, Get One sales on sweaters that fit perfectly. Hanging my future mother-in-law’s Christmas lights (most accurately, watching Pre-Husband do it). A weeknight glass of wine. Going absolutely silly-mad with my sister making 6 dozen “Minne-pies” (we will probably never do this again). This face:
If this is real life, please bring on more ‘ordinary’ next year too.
