Things that Make Me Happy

So many Mondays many of us wake up and dread the day ahead. It’s Monday, the weekend is over, the workweek is ahead of us (or, for some of us, just another week of the same old thing is ahead of us,) and that makes Mondays a tough day.

Not this week, though…not for me. It’s a week to be thankful and to recognize all the good things in our lives.That’s what I’m doing today so here are some things that make me happy.

My husband, Richie. I would rather be with him than anywhere else on earth. He makes me laugh like no one else on earth, he’s the best friend I’ve ever had, I trust him without end, plus he’s the sexiest man ever!…he is my soul mate.

Art Supplies…oh how art supplies make me happy! YUM!

Books. All kinds of books. Yes, books make me VERY happy.

  Art Journaling…seeing the work of others, playing in my own art journals, experimenting, learning, playing, everything about art journals make me happy!

My little precious Chloe pup who is forever by my side.

Anything that combines caramel, pecans & chocolate but especially brownies; brownies are my downfall.
*mouth watering*

Nuff said…I adore NPR podcasts. Listen to tons of them.

The beach…more precisely Clearwater Beach, Florida…
where we’ll soon be living!

Yes, these things among many, many others make me happy…so that’s where I’m keeping my focus today.

So tell me, what’s on your list of things that make you happy this Monday?
