50 things that make me happy.

50 things that make me happy.

I was inspired by Everything’s Looking Rosie to put together a list of 50 Things That Make Me Happy – Wednesday’s can be tough, especially rainy ones, so what better way to get through a long day than thinking of all the amazing things in life that make you smile.

Here goes nothing!

  1. My frenchie, Zara
  2. Climbing into bed after a long day
  3. Sleeping on freshly cleaned sheets
  4. My Mom’s spaghetti and meatballs
  5. Good hair days
  6. Birthday’s
  7. Buffalo chicken anything
  8. Waking up to the smell of coffee on the weekends
  9. Notes for no reason (from my favorite human <3 )

  50. Smiling for no reason at all and realizing how many things you have in your life to be happy about.

There you have it folks – my ‘50 Things That Make Me Happy‘. As Rosie menionted in her post, I thought this was going to be tough, but it was actually really easy! As I sit here and finish up this blog post I’m actually (or awkwardly…) smiling.


SO, here’s my challenge to you – take a shot at your list, really, what are you waiting for?
