What Makes Me Happy


1)  The Butterfly that landed on this flower just as I was getting  ready to take a picture.  Such a lovely surprise.

2)  Fresh mountain air and the smell of pine trees.

3)  The very nice person that took the time to answer my son’s one million questions all about him and his horse, Lily Belle. 

4)  Yummy carne asada tacos.

5)  When my husband reaches out and squeezes my hand telling me, “I just love our family”.  Be still my heart…

6)  When my 13 yr. old son tells me he gave his friend, who’s family is going through a rough time right now, the $3 in his pocket because, as he said, ‘he needed it more than me and it was the right thing to do’. 

7)  Having the house all to myself and playing the Black Eyed Peas’ I Got A Feeling REALLY LOUDLY and putting it on repeat mode.

8)  When my 9 yr. old son reaches out and takes my hand as we’re walking and gives it 3 squeezes, our code for “I love you”.

9) The look on my 90 yr. old grandma’s face when she holds my 5 month old niece. 

10)  My grandma, period.


What makes you happy? Do share.

    What a splendid photo! The list is just lovely. Happy for me these days is the coming of Fall, my most favorite time of the year. I’m sneaking off to go apple picking with just my oldest and finally making time for one on one things w/ kids is a very happy thing.

    When my 3 year old asks me, “Mommy, you my friend?”
    I say “yes” and his whole face lights up and he give me a big hug and a kiss. I never get tired of it.

    Those taco would also do it (LOL)

    Great photo
