laundry, fresh out of the dryer
back rubs
the sound of bedtime stories through the monitor
organic berries
pumpkin spice lattes
^lattes in general
sweater weather
under the blanket giggles
a cold glass of chocolate milk
receiving a package in the mail
my sweet raspy girl singing john lennon's "beautiful boy" 
new bedding
brown bag wrapped flowers
a walk in the city
family movie date
white paint
my favorite blue t-shirt
catching up with old friend
^sending a handwritten letter to another
the perfect messy bun
pretzels and mustard
freshly painted nails
a healthy child

For me, jotting these down as a visual reminder allows for me to reflect and truly appreciate that I have so many reasons to be happy; that so many things in life bring me joy.

What are some things that make you happy?
