5 Smiles: July 17

My sister’s wedding was last weekend. It was a beautiful day full of love, family and friends. In the mist of having my parents in town and helping with the preparation, I had to make sure I took some time to slow down and enjoy the fact that my baby sister was getting married. I took a couple afternoons off for quality time with family and spent the day before the wedding with my sister to take in each little moment. It’s hard to not get caught up in the to-do lists and last minute details but my favourite time was our family dinner the night before. We all sat down and enjoyed one of Moe’s specialty, beer-butt chicken. I’ll have to share the recipe one of these days but for now, enjoy this week’s smiles!

Can'rt go wrong with Moe's famous beer-butt chicken.

What is 5 smiles?
Smiling at Strangers has taught me to be present in the little moments of my life and appreciate the beauty that surrounds me each and every day. Every week, I share 5 moments in pictures that might seem small but have made me smile. Hopefully it inspires you to appreciate the little things too.
