just right


it’s the little things…

like gifts from friends…

O Canada...how i love your treats...

freshly painted toenails and sipping wine with your husband…

do these feet say "let me entertain you?" like the color's name says?

trips to the bookstore…

i may have a wide variety of interests right now

tiny reminders…

yeah, I know. I just have to open my laptop!

lunch with no flying food or tantrums…

mmmm...best. bread. ever.

my favorite flowers…

and yes, I kissed him on his two-lips when he gave these to me.

little hands wanting to make letters…


a reminder that someone is getting a cousin (or two) very soon!

hooray for cousins...

wait...does this mean I have to share Granny?

And my two very best guys…

handsome and cutie

…to make me feel like everything in this world is just the way it’s supposed to be.

that everything is just right.

About Katie

Just a small town girl...wait no. That is a Journey song. Katie Sluiter is a small town girl, but she is far from living in a lonely world. She is a middle school English teacher, writer, mother, and wife. Life has thrown her a fair share of challenges, but her belief is that writing through them makes her stronger.


  1. So sweet!! The little things and little moments are what make life beautiful.
    (also, I’m loving that polish color you have going on. Cute!)

  2. Oh how a good pedicure can dig you out of the deepest hole…I cannot wait for spring!

  3. I like this. And I’m Canadian. Our candy so rocks. Let me know when you’re out and I’ll hook you up. For real, yo’. That’s my best Canadian Candy Dealer imitation.

  4. LOVE the pictures! And…is that an AERO bar??? I”m from Canada originally…and MAN, do I miss my Canadian canday!!

  5. He is cute. Great expression.

  6. If I ever get to meet Eddie, I will NOT grab him and squeeze his juicy, gorgeous cheeks.

    I promise I won’t.

  7. Very sweet, love that little hand on his Magna Doodle. I would tell you to enjoy but it’s obvious you already are.

  8. that last picture is AMAZING! like serious perfection. And kimberly? what a great friend!!

  9. PS- i could send you mexican candy, but you’d probably hate me forever. (EWW)

  10. You’ve got the whole world, in your hands, girl!

  11. What a precious baby! I need an insulin shot…

  12. The small things in life are so great!! My 365 project is slowly teaching me that. It’s hard to find something to take a picture of everyday. So you’re forced to find small things that make you happy.
    Oh, wait….You don’t have smarties in the states?

  13. Beautiful.
    Ps your camera rocks!!

  14. Pedicures are magic. Period.

  15. O.M.G. That last picture is melting me all over the place. Melted me, everywhere.

    Laurie Notaro! Makes me laugh out loud at inappropriate times. It’s been such a long time since I’ve read her, what a great reminder! 😉 Speaking of reminders, lord do I need a pedi…

  16. Yay candy and boys and pretty toes!!
