    Oooooo Shiny!!

    A chunk of quartz and a diamond are the same to me -,they're both shiny!! It's the thought behind the gift, the energy it holds that is the real gem

    A single rose so much more said

    than a dozen. a surprise picnic so much more romantic and intimate than a fancy dinner. a small heart locket with a kiss more personal than 24karat gold tennis bracelet. yep the little things make me smile and my heart race.

    It's So Easy To Touch My Heart

    I'm not a fan of being the centre of attention. It makes me uncomfortable. I don't need extravagant gifts. I like to do for others and spend on others. Somehow it's difficult for me to relax enough to enjoy others doing for me.But it's easy to touch my heart. Send me some words...

    Love You, Mama

    my daughter's silly smile, her bouncy walk, angelic curls, unwavering eagerness. my daughter is the "littlest thing" i know and everything about her means more to me than anything.

    It Doesn't Matter How Small The Gesture, As Long As It Comes From The Heart

    I prefer things that come more from one's heart...not one's pocket book. Don't spend money on a bouquet of a dozen perfect red roses, that's easy and effortless. Stop on your way home and pick me a handful of wildflowers instead. Don't waste your money on expensive jewelry of...

    Literally. Even the smallest things

    or actions. Sometimes memories just love to play trick on us. They make us think of the past, the littlest things which we did not even pay much attention to.

    Funny how sometimes the smallest things can

    mean the world to you. We all get caught up in the rush of our everyday lives. But sometimes the smallest of things can really make your day! Ever done the laundry and found a bill/note in a trouser pocket? You're up to your neck in something and somebody brings you a cup of...
