Happiness is…

T’eeny-tiny baby toes.

Maggie snuggles.

FaveRed Starburst.

A good manicure.

Jethro rolling over in cuddle on a Saturday morning.

Feeling like I accomplished soemthing at the end of the day.

A new episode of Dr. Who.  Or NCIS.

Long talks with old girlfriends.

My parents saying they are proud.

Toddler laughs.

A messy kitchen after baking.

A brand new journal or notebook.

Being ahead of schedule.

A empty house where I can sing as loud as I want to.

A new perfume.

Jethro laughing so hard he wheezes.

Blowing bubble in the grass.

Finishing a craft project, even if it sucks a little.

Champagne in a flute.

The moment while running that your legs are warm and you hit your stride.

Having the remote for an entire night.

Old photographs of family members.

A new xkcd comic.

The minute your hiccups go away.

Getting a weird compliment, like “You have really white teeth.”

Warm cookies. Cold (coconut milk) ice cream.

A day without a headache.

Quiet days on the porch at the Farm.

    lovely, lovely post. Such great moments! I recently started writing down one happy moment of the day before bed – nice to go to bed with a smile (most of the time) on my face.

    Amen on the Doctor Who. Bliss is getting your husband into it too, so you have someone to geek out with.

    Bliss is also being the one gotten into it by the fiance. (That’s a horrible sentence, and I apologize).

    This is a great list!

    I was just thinking up a list like this last night! I reading a book called “The Happiness Project” right now that’s making me take stock of things.
