The Stay Sunny Society* and @discoverwoodrivervalley would like to remind us to slow down and enjoy the little things... because it's the little things that end up being the big things.

*The mission of the Stay Sunny Society is to celebrate and protect the things we love most about Sun Valley. This Society is not run by an eccentric billionaire or international cabal. Instead, it is a collective voice of the Valley: its servers, bartenders, cops, hoteliers, townies, tourists, and Regular Joes. ONE community bound together, by kindness and respect.
