My List of Happy.

Monday, January 24, 2011

First of all, a big, big thank you to those of you who commented on my last post. Your words really comforted me during a rough week and reminded me that we're all searching for meaningful work that compliments how happy we know we can be. After I gave my notice at my job last week, I have felt an enormous weight lifted from my shoulders and am reminded of the many, many things I am grateful for. Sometimes it's the little things and sometimes it's the really, really big things.

So here it is, my current little list of happy.

Long naps. Morning smoothies. Giggling children and snuggling babies. Getting lost in a good book and then another. Checking things off the to do list. Instantly watching Grey's Anatomy on Netflix after taking a long break from the show. Saying goodbye to the graveyard shift. Dr. Praeger's sweet potato pancakes. New jobs. A best friend who never ceases to find a way to understand what I'm going through. Frozen yogurt. Kanye's "All of the Lights." Planning for a puppy. The unconditional love of my family. 70 degree days just starting to return. Bachelor nights with Jenner's mom. New friends. Eyelash extensions. A trip to Palm Springs with a few of my adored ladies. A love who loves me through the hard stuff.

What's on your happy list?


  1. yay! i love your list. isn't it great to be in a place in life where you have things to be so excited about?!

  2. love your list! morning smoothies are the best, and i can't wait to get a little puppy!

  3. I love happy lists.

    Today I'm happily loving: streaks of sunshine; my bomber jacket that is still making me want to perpetually quote Top Gun two weeks after buying it; work productivity; Pandora; green tea; knowing I have date and a tasty brew with a good friend on the horizon.

  4. love this happy post...a morning smoothie would have definitely put a smile on my face today :)
