There are so many wonderful reasons to be happy!

Happy Monday and Happy Spring!!  Spring has finally sprung, even if it doesn't quite feel it yet!  But the hope is there!!  And thanks to my trusty Erin Condren Life Planner I know that today is also the International Day of Happiness.   I do my best to live a happy day everyday!!  The Desiderata hangs in my bedroom and I read it each morning, like a prayer.  The ending states, "Strive to be happy." It's not always easy, but I'm always looking for the positive and the happy in each day! Because, honestly there are are just so many reasons to be happy!!

Today to celebrate the day, I want to share a few of them.... (in no particular order!)

Happiness is....

  • the first sip of coffee in the morning!

  • that glass of wine at the end of the day
  • a good night's sleep
  • Family time
  • a new book
  • a surprise bagel from my co-worker
  • a Saturday with no plans
  • a smile from a stranger
  • Girls' Nights spent laughing until it hurts
  • an unexpected text
  • a day in jeans and sneakers
  • Sunny and 70 degrees
  • an ice cold beer
  • sand in my toes
  • Sunrises and sunsets
  • a TAN!
  • blog comments
  • a home cooked meal I didn't have to cook
  • a fun song on repeat
  • a great pair of jeans that fit like a glove
  • a few extra minutes in the shower
  • hugs from my favorite littles
  • a day off
  • packages on my doorstep
  • new shoes
  • being in pj's by 5 p.m.
  • Happy Hours & Game Nights
  • Sleeping in
  • ice cream and cupcakes
  • HOME
