Little Happies

If you've never had a gratitude journal or as I have dubbed mine..a "little happies journal" I encourage you to start one. It's really powerful to scribble down all of the little things you're grateful for each day. It has opened my eyes to what it really is that drives me and makes me happy. I've found that it's usually the simplest of things that fulfill me.

Like...

The anticipation of a weekend with my mom in town.

And using the crystal just because I feel like it

And the excitement of the changing of the seasons and all the fun that comes along with Fall. (now if the weather would just cooperate)




And the fact that I have the type of husband who leaves me love notes.



And being around kids again. I didn't realize how much I missed little beings. And being with kids again means bringing out the "Mary Poppins" bag filled with goodies like my favorite children's books and the very thing that just may have inspired me to become a teacher. Hello yummy smelling markers. :)
And loungy Sunday mornings cuddled up with the pup.
(don't tell the hubby that I let her get up on the bed when he's not home.)

And a nice quiet dinner at home with Jim where music plays instead of annoying TV commercials and plastic CPK containers sit next to the twinkling taper candles just to keep it real.



What are some of your little happies? I'd love to hear!

You are my pride and joy, and you make me happy beyond words could ever say!
