What Makes Me Happy

Day 14: Ten things that make you really happy

Narrowing it down to just 10 things was actually quite difficult.  I'm sure more will come to mind throughout the day but here are a just few of the things that make me happy (in no particular order):

1. Molly
She's the cutest, smartest, friendliest, sweetest, bestest little guinea pig in all the land.  We're even thinking of getting another because the awesomeness of Molly needs to be passed on to another generation of guinea pigs.

2. The Fancy Fiance.
And doing pretty much anything with him, but especially, pizza parties on the couch with the latest disc from Netflix and Amici's pepperoni and mushroom pizza.

3. Pretty nail polishes and the freedom to change it up whenever I want.

4. Hot chocolate / chocolate milk.

5. Thunderstorms in the summer, which we NEVER have here in California and I miss them terribly.

6. Being near the ocean.
Not that I particularly care to swim in it (it actually freaks me out a little bit...) but I do love being near it - hearing the waves crash on shore, inhaling the salty air, and feeling the cool sea breeze through my hair with the rough sand beneath my feet.  That makes me happy.

7. Traveling and exploring new places.
I didn't really travel much until after college but now I can't get enough.  Whether it's a short little drive a few hours up the coast or a trip to a whole new continent, traveling thrills me like none other.

8. Cooking / baking and hearing the 'oohs' and 'ahs' when I've served up something yummy.

9. Showing my clients how beautiful they are through my lens.

10. The smell of fresh flowers in our apartment, along with many other smells like freshly mowed grass, coffee brewing in the morning, apple pie baking in the oven, bacon frying on the stove, and wood burning in the fireplace.

What makes you happy?




  1. I love this!! I like all the points you've written. And the photos! Gorgeous! You got me at chocolate milk ;)

  2. Good golly Miss Molly! She's precious! I also love thunderstorms in the summer. Maybe I just love rain in the summer. Great list!

  3. Loving all of your lists! I agree with the food, and the travel, and fuzzy animals, and oceans...and well everything! (www.blairsays.com)

  4. Your list makes me happy. :) I'm not a fan of swimming in the ocean, either, but I do love to admire it! And I'm definitely a travel fanatic. Not being able to take a trip until our honeymoon is killing me! Though we are escaping to visit family in a few weeks . . . just for a long weekend. But I'll take it.

  5. I need to start cooking and baking more...I use to do so quite a bit, and I miss it!!

    And thunderstorms?! Always my favorite part of the summer =)

  6. First of all, I love these pictures. Gorgeous. Also, I'm jealous of your ocean. Oklahoma is pretty much as far from the ocean as you can get.

  7. I think I need a e-Molly cuddle because they sound pretty awesome :)

  8. Aww...your photos always makes me smile! <3

  9. Those are definitely some good things! you should get a boyfriend for Molly! Since you're getting married maybe she would want to too!

  10. aww the picture of you and your hunny is beautiful! when are you guys getting married? We've been getting a lot of good thunderstorms here in northern virginia. and i LOVE them. it reminds me of my childhood for some reason.

  11. thrift shopping makes me happy :)

  12. I looooooved the way you approached this prompt! And I quite loved the items you put on your list. Very personal, very pretty! :)
