two of your favorite songs playing back-to-back on the radio
penne pasta
the smell of coffee in the morning
hunting sand dollars on the beach
board games
mac & cheese, the way mom makes it

a perfectly round scoop of ice cream
green baseball grass
inside jokes
evenings in with grown-up hot chocolate, a warm blankie, a good movie, & even better company
license plate/car games
jigsaw puzzles
the feeling you get when someone tells you that you've made their day

reading the book before you see the movie
a day without phone calls
key lime pie
brain teasers
green acres
winning final jeopardy
warm socks straight out of the dryer
an uninterrupted nap

raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens

in visiting my best friend this past weekend, i found a book on her shelf nuzzled between some cookbooks called 14,000 things to be happy about. it is one person's list, compiled over years and years, of things that made or make her happy. just reading a few pages of the book made me feel good, and i wanted to start my own list. nothing but positive energy coming from this blog, scouts honor.
