5 Pointz, donut dates, and snail mail. It is all about the little things.

Here are some little things that have brought joy to my week... 

5 Pointz
Brian and I have taken many trips to 5 Pointz, an abandoned warehouse in Long Island City that has been transformed into an outdoor art exhibit space. Every time we go, we spend time walking around admiring the new pieces that have been added since our last visit. Last weekend, we took Brian's nephew, DJ, and Emily along to check it out. 
I am so impressed every time I visit 5 Pointz. How this is all created with spray paint is something I will never understand.
Donut Dates
After months away, we returned to Peter Pan on Sunday morning for coffee, donuts, and egg sandwiches. It was just as delicious as I remembered. (Read more about Peter Pan here and here.)
Fresh Flowers
I love that flower stands can be found on most NYC street corners with cheap bouquets. These light purple flowers have been brightening my desk this week.
Snail Mail
I received these with my Thanksgiving card from my sister. Letters and pictures from my nieces Sage and Reese always bring a smile to my face. And Reese is right, I think they need to come to New York soon! I can't wait to spend time with them in Minnesota over the holidays. It will be the first time they get to play in the snow (they live in Florida)!
 I hope the little things in your life are bringing a smile to your face this week!
