The Little Things, Part 1

Got a new car? Awesome! Going to France? Way to go! Moving to a new house and starting a new life? Good for you!
Everyone seems to appreciate these things but tend to forget the awesomeness of the smaller things in life that seem to go unacknowledged, everyday. And no I'm not talking about cheesy stuff like dancing in the rain and all. Just other, more uncommon things.

After all, it's the little things in life that matter. Or at least thats what they say.
