Things that make me happy

My friend Najah made a list on her blog of things that make her happy, and asked her readers what makes them happy. I enjoyed reading her list and thought it would be fun to make my own. I'd also love to hear some of the things that make you happy. (But only some.)

Try not to judge me for some of the superficial things on this list. I can't help what makes me happy!

  • funky pens
  • thunderstorms
  • blogging
  • summer days
  • funny writing
  • funny people
  • answered prayers
  • meeting a new friend
  • my favorite t.v. shows (go ahead and judge me, i don't care.) ;)
  • parody
  • exploring new places
  • babies
  • leaves in fall
  • holidays
  • throwing parties
  • good friends
  • family
  • going home to a good book
  • chocolate cake with chocolate frosting
  • crisp fall days (only the crisp ones)

  • the smell of book stores
  • positive change
  • learning
  • kind people
  • good leadership
  • good food

You forgot, "My Favorite sister, Katherine." (Just wait 'til Heather reads this...) I like the smell of leaves burning; cider mills; laying in my hammock on a perfect spring, summer, or fall day; nieces and nephews; buying school supplies; the smell of a new book, etc.
