Happy

“It’s a helluva start, being able to recognize what makes you happy. ”
― Lucille Ball

Since it’s Wednesday and the majority of our house is sick, I thought I’d do a happiness list today.

Here are a few things that make me happy:

Open mouthed baby kisses.
When Fynn says: “This is my style,” “Here’s the plan,” and “Let’s rock and roll”.
The lake view outside my east window.
When Mia waves hello.
Hardwood floors.
The smell of freshly ground coffee.
Waking up to Fynn burrowed into my side after he has climbed into our bed.
Mia’s sweet baby babbling.
When Nate calls in the middle of the day, just because.
The smell of the air in September.
How the house feels after I’ve rearranged the furniture.
Tea tree shampoo and conditioner.
Family dinners.
Watching Fynn play in the sand.
When Mia falls asleep on my chest.
When Fynn has to stop to smell the roses growing by the side of our building.
The way Fynn wraps himself around Nate when he gets home from work.
When Mia tries to follow us around the house.
When I catch Fynn giving Mia a hug.
The smell of Nate’s cologne in the morning before he leaves for work.
Reading the first chapter of a new book.
Tomatoes.
Walking on the lakefront.
Sitting in the courtyard watching Fynn play.
The first step onto the trails at the nature center.
Going to bed knowing my family is happy and healthy.

That’s it for now! I hope you all have a very happy Wednesday.
