 “Don’t ever let yourself get so busy that you miss those little but important extras in life- the beauty of a day the smile of a friend. For it is often life’s smallest pleasures and gentlest joys that make the biggest and most lasting difference”

This little quote really spoke to me and caused me to look at myself and my life. It’s so true, once all the busyness has passed, what would we have gained from it? More wealth, more fame, more success? If attaining these will costs us our happiness and joy  is it really worth really pursuing?

And with that quote in mind, I was prompted to make a little present for one of my closest friends the other day, Alex, who turned 21 two weeks ago. (You can see her feature on the blog in //ALEX and a little info about her!)

Using kopic markers, black textas and fine liners I spend a few hours making this small book to express to her how special she is to me.

Because at the end of the day, when we’ve reached out goals and dreams, it’s our friends and family that celebrate these milestones with us.

Let someone dear to your heart know today how special they are to you!

“A friend loves at all times, and a brother is born for adversity”

Proverbs 17:17

And with  that task in mind, I would love to let you know how special you are to BPS(BigPictureStuff!)

You guys are the best!

    This post is really meaningful…it’s true sometimes we get so caught up in our own world and everything around us, that we forget to remember and treasure the special things in life and this is truly important! Also the drawings are very cute, heart felt and sweet. Keep it up!!!
