Where troubles melt like lemon drops

via Pinterest

Sitting here this morning I started thinking about how many little things in life fill my heart with light and happiness.  I decided to make a list and share it!  Oh and side note - how adorable is the picture above???  It instantly made me smile. I mean really!? Look at that little face!!  Okay okay, here's the list :)

  • Opening the windows for the first time after a long winter
  • Biting into a really tasty strawberry (for those who like strawberries, this is wonderful!)
  • Laughing so hard that your stomach hurts and your sides ache
  • When an awesome song that you completely forgot about comes on the radio
  • Stretching
  • Dancing around like a crazy person 
  • Running barefoot in the grass
  • Slumber Parties (go ahead!  Ask your best friend to come over and have a slumber party like you did when you were younger - make yummy food, watch movies, reminisce, laugh - it will be fun, trust me!)
  • Watching the sunrise
  • Coming home or waking up to a clean apartment/house
  • A good cup of coffee or tea
  • Listening to oldies music from the 50's & 60's (it always makes me want to put on a poodle skirt and go to a sock hop!)
  • Looking through old pictures 
  • Walking on the beach, feeling the sand between your toes and listening to the waves roll in 
  • A good book
  • Taking a deep breath
  • The smell of cookies baking in the oven
  • Biting into one of those cookies while there still warm and gooey in the middle
  • Animal Crackers
  • Singing in the shower (it always sounds good!)
  • Getting a massage
  • Brinner (Breakfast for Dinner)
  • Afternoon naps
  • Looking up at the night sky and catching a glimpse of a shooting star
  • A new pair of shoes that fit just right 
  • A really big bear hug
  • Swimming at night (bonus points on the wonderfulness if you're ballsy enough to go skinny dipping!)
  • Taking a hot bath (I'm a fan of bubble baths myself)
  • Kissing in the rain
  • The smell of a camp fire burning
  • The feeling of sunshine warming you up
  • Making someone smile or laugh
  • Getting kissed on the forehead
  • Eating fried dough at a town fair
  • Painting - who cares what the finished product looks like?!  Enjoy the process!!
  • Road trips
  • Good hair days
  • Snuggling 
  • A cozy blanket
  • Floating in the water
  • Fresh snow
  • A hot shower

Wow! I could go on forever....what are some simple things in life that bring you joy??  Please share :)

Lots of Love,
