Things That Make Me Happy // 2

May 29, 2015

Here are a few of the little things that have been making me happy lately:

Catching the sunset on your evening commute.
Now that it's closer to summer, the days are getting longer. Thankfully, that means when I leave work it's not completely dark yet and sometimes it's the perfect time for to watch the sunset as I'm headed westbound on my way back home!

The "blue kind" of any candy.
What even is a blue raspberry? Either way, it's the best.

Freshly painted nails.
Having a brand new mani or pedi is one of the best feelings!

When your pillows and blankets are cool when you get into bed.
This happens less and less in the summer, but when it does actually happen, it's so nice!

Having an opportunity to plan a trip or party.
I don't know about you, but I love to plan things! If there is an occasion that could warrant a Pinterest board, I'll make one. Roadtrips. Birthdays. Bridal Showers. Dinner Parties. Everything!

What are some "everyday" things that make you happy?
Are any of these on your list?


  1. It's so nice to step back and appreciate the little things. Some things that have been making me happy lately are the sweet smells from all the flowers in bloom, and the beautiful blue skies we have had here lately. Oh and way is blue always the most delicious flavor of candy??!

  2. Blue raspberry candy is my favorite kind of candy! I hate to know what it's made of...but yeah!

  3. Being able to sing a long to a really fast bit in a song, the smell of my violin as I take it out of its case and walking through a pile of failed leaves are probably my favourite 'every day' happy things. I agree with you about sunsets and cool bedsheets and pillows, however I usually make a mess whenever I put nail vanish on, so that one's not great for me!
