Day 14: 10 things that make you happy
Laughing is definitely at the top of my list, especially with Alex. It's one of the main reasons that I fell in love with him. He loves to laugh and watching him when he is hysterical is even better. Also when my mom, sister and I get together, sometimes my mom will just start laughing nonstop and within minutes we are all crying we're laughing so hard. Laughter is one of the best sounds in the world!
Flowers - any kind, anywhere. If anyone follows me on Instagram, they will notice most of my photos are of flowers. I can't get enough of them. They make me smile and be thankful for such beauty. My all time fave flower is the simple white daisy. Peonies are topping that list too lately!
Sunshine - There is nothing like basking in the sun, whether it be walking, riding bikes, or just hanging out in the backyard with a cool drink, some music, a good book or a friend.
The Ocean - I feel so lucky to live very close to the Ocean and it's a place that I go to when I want to be alone and think or just to listen to the waves crash on the rocks. Water is such a relaxing sound.
Spending time with friends and family - There is nothing better than just hanging out with friends and family. It soothes the soul, makes my heart swell and is the happiest feeling every. I will be seeing my family in a week and a half - and I finally get to meet my newest great nephew, Hudson - so excited!
Music - I love to listen to it when I am walking and driving in the car (especially by myself), I can sing as loud as I want and just enjoy my fave songs! Going to see live music is one of my favorite things to do too. I prefer smaller type venues and not super huge ones. An intimate setting is the best!
Books - I have been a bookworm since I learned how to read. When I finished my first big book by myself, I remember feeling just so proud of myself and I also remember the name. It was called the Primrose Garden. I will have to look that up and see if it's still in print.
Alone time - I am a loner at heart and it is necessary for my well being. I love going places by myself - out to eat, to the movies, road trips, (I will be taking a solo road trip next week and I can't wait!)
Traveling - I love traveling. It doesn't matter where - I love to see how people live in different parts of the country or the world. You always bring a little bit of what you have learned back with you.
Cappuccino - A nice hot cappuccino with a little biscuit to dip into it makes me very happy.
Enjoy your day and do something
that brings a smile to your face!
