Bits Of Happy

Happiness is…

one of two rainbows - 10/2/10

capturing a great shot.

exploring away from home.

the smell of fresh air wisping through the windows.

listening to a good thunderstorm.

having home movie nights with Greg.

sipping a good cup of tea, hot cocoa, or coffee.

the smell of sweet, cinnamon-y candles.

indulging in reese’s peanut butter cups

and waffles and ice cream.


getting creative in the kitchen.

stealing kisses from Jay.

hearing him say, “tank you, mommy” and “pahlaze (please)”.

laughing out loud.

browser shopping and adding items to my Wishpot.

unique sneakers.

painting my nails.

getting lost in home decor blogs.

these guys.

    That is a very amazing list. Made me think of what would be on my own list and I definitely have to agree with the home movie nights, but in our case it’s more like home television show nights. Getting a few seasons of a show, watching as many episodes as we can until we’re too tired to pay attention anymore.
