* From my eyes to yours... Things that make me happy!

What makes you happy??

Winning a million dollars would make me happy, never getting a speeding ticket ever again would make me happy, flying to the moon would make me happy.. the list goes on.. But I want to know what little things put a smile on your face each day, Aside from cooking of course..

The Ocean makes me a happy girl! It is the reason I moved to New Jersey in the first place.. The smell of the ocean, the sound of the waves.. that is pure heaven for me!!
Lighthouses are another one of my favorites. I love learning about the history, traveling in time and climbing up the stairs to see the amazing view at the top! Absolutely Amazing!
Spending time with friends and family. My momma took a long weekend trip to Martha's Vineyard.. this is a photo from there! We spent all day walking across the island (Probably walked about 6 or 7 miles that day-which is more than we are use to!) Family and friends are everything!
Baby Animals (doesn't just have to be puppies and kittens-any baby animal will do) are one of my weaknesses! They are so CUTE!! Look at this tiny guy!!
This is a family of Swans that I saw one day.. The momma, daddy and two babies! It was a beautiful sunny day out.. I was "sitting on the dock of the bay" (seriously, I was) reading a book.. and this family happened to swim by.. It put a smile on my face! Had to take a photo! They came right up by me (I had to hurry and pull my feet up on to the dock!!)
County fairs!! I LOVE LOVE LOVE them. I don't know why, but I do! This is a photo taken at a county fair in Jersey that a girlfriend of mine and I went to last sunday, we went to it last year, and I am sure we will go to it next year too!!  And, lucky me.. next weekend I will be going back to PA! Why you may ask?? For several reasons!! To throw my little cousin a baby shower!! To visit the county fair :), and to visit friends and family!! All things that make me smile!!
There are a ton of simple things out there that put a smile on my face...the smell of fresh mowed grass, a new book, a bubble bath.. the list can go on forever...But I want you guys to share with me!! Take a minute and think about it... Just thinking of the little things can brighten up a day!! What makes you happy?

Have a Happy Day!!


  1. Such a cute post! Thunderstorms make me happy, but maybe that's just because I live in the desert. And so does spending time with my family and best friends. And, of course, the occasional Starbucks splurge. PS, check out my blog, I have a giveaway going on that I think you might like :)

  2. Nice list of things... Thanks for sharing.

  3. Beautiful post:) I am in love with that little turtle...

  4. Very sweet and honest. Little things in life make me happiest- a quiet moment in the kitchen while stock simmers makes me happy; the farmers market makes me happy; my little girl's mischievous smile makes me happy; beating rush hour traffic makes me happy. Now, that million dollar would be nice too :)
