So Much To Be Happy For

Warm weather. Visits to the Zoo. Meeting new friends. Seeing old friends. Countdowns to vacation. Trips to the shore. Late night fires in the garden. Fuchsias and Ranunculus. Best friends with new jobs. Husbands with new dreams. Loved ones with new homes. Dogs who learn new tricks. Cats that break old habits. Cuddling. Movie date nights. Cheer up date nights. Date nights, dang it!

Strong brewed tea in the morning. Effortless dinners at night. Wearing flower crowns for no reason. Afternoon naps on the couch. Watching British television on the kindle. Painting with watercolors on the front porch. Wearing new clothes. Hiding Birthday presents. Yard sales. Snail Mail. Beatrix potter books. Sherlock manga, Japanese kitkats and kimmidolls.

Buying a vintage typewriter. Toasted Italian bread. Planting a veggie garden. Eating homemade donuts. Vintage handkerchiefs. Etsy sales. Lemonade all of the time. Going days without seeing the in-laws. Good health. Great Love. Better life.

  1. I love this post! I love how you listed all the things that are making you happy 😀

    The typewriter looks so neat! And what donuts recipe did you use to make it? Do share! ^^

  2. This is a great list! I’m glad so many happy things have been happening for you 😀 I loved seeing your photo of The Tale of Benjamin Bunny. I used to love Beatrix Potter so much, and now I want to go back and read her books again.

    haha, I remember seeing those Sherlock mangas when I was in Japan, and I was surprised. I didn’t realize they turned the TV series into a manga series! Your donuts also look delicious. I’m glad you’re doing well!

  3. ERGH homemade donuts, you’ve got me craving so hard.

    I’m glad there have been good things going on for you, though! It’s fantastic how you’re keeping a positive mentality – a skill we all need these days.

  4. I love your pictures!

    The Sherlock manga looks so cool. You’ll need to let me know how the vintage typewriter is because I’ve been wanting to get one for the longest time.

  5. I am officially inspired to do one of these, especially with summer coming! That typewriter is gorgeous! As are your flowers. 🙂 I think we all sometimes forget how to be grateful and to focus on the positive moments and blessings we have!
