Happy Friday friends! Lately, I've been thinking a lot about the little examples we set in our daily lives. Because Ruby is at the age where she repeats everything we say and do, we have to be super cautious not to say bad words, be sarcastic, or show behaviors that we don't want her to emulate. She'll cross her arms in front of her chest because she is mimicking how I always cross my arms. I didn't even realize how much I do it myself until I see her acting like "mama".

It's funny to think about the small things you do that you don't even realize that others pick up on. Whether it's thanking someone for a simple task, having a positive outlook even if we don't feel 100% positive that day, or sitting up a little straighter to show that we're confident about what we're doing. It's those little things that count...

Have a great weekend guys!

P.S. If you haven't watched this Ted talk yet, you must...
