10 Things That Make Me Happy

Hello, hello! 
I wasn’t planning on posting today, but I’ve been seeing lots of other bloggers post about today’s topic for Jenni’s fun Blog Everyday in May challenge and thought I’d jump on the bandwagon as well! Today’s topic is “List ten things that make you happy” and I am all about focusing on the positives in life, so here goes! 
1. A fresh mani/pedi in a bright color
2. Making homemade chocolate chip cookies and eating the dough
3. Going shopping and finding an item you love where there’s only one left…in your size…on sale…best feeling ever, it’s just like something was meant for you to have it
4. A clean kitchen (especially if I didn’t have to be the one to clean it–ha!)
5. Blue skies, sunshine, warm weather, and being on/by the water–so basically summer
6. That moment of sitting on an airplane when the wheels finally lift off the ground, especially when I’m headed out on a fun vacation or going home to see my family
7. A big bouquet of fluffy pink peonies, my favorite flower
8. Europe, New York City, and Ann Arbor, Michigan (especially in the fall) 
9. Stripes, polka dots, and anything with rainbow sprinkles
10. These two nuggets 🙂
I could go on and on listing little (and big) things that bring a smile to my face, but these were the first 10 that popped into my mind today! Hope you’re having a good week everyone! Xoxo

    A fresh mani/pedi is always a great thing! I think I'm treating myself to a mani this weekend!

    Oh and I wanted to tell you- Katie (married with a pup) let me borrow her packing cubes for our recent trip that you had told her to get and they were the best thing in the world! I loved how organized they kept everything!! Thanks for the tip!

    Eating fresh cookie dough is pretty much the best . . . I mean, nothing else compares! 🙂 I'm also a huge travel buff and love that feeling lift-off. I'm long overdue for a vacation, but have to wait until my honeymoon now! Ahhh!

    Echoing all of these & currently wishing a cleaning fairy would make my kitchen sparkle! 😉

    Hydrangeas do for me what peonies do for you — fresh flowers make me SO happy. And making chocolate chip cookies is truly one of life's simplest pleasures.
