100 Things – Week 1

To make a long story short, I ran into this 100 Simple Things project and quickly decided I needed to do this.  Now, every Friday for the next 10 weeks, I will be posting a list of 10 things that make me happy.

I’m excited to take this on because I believe it’s absolutely necessary to take note of all those little things in life that we sometimes take for granted and be thankful for them. They may be the littlest or most insignificant things, but they are the ones that brighten up my day every time.

#1 – Pretty flower arrangements that light up & freshen an entire room

#2 – A cup of tea with honey

#3 – Extra chocolate chips in my cupcake batter

#4 – My striped headboard, which was my first DIY home project :)

#5 – Sushi delivery

#6 –  Untouched snow (which I remember dearly from my days in the Northeast)

#7 – Pretty mornings as seen from my balcony

#8 – Homemade cappuccino

#9 – Afternoon bike rides

#10 – Paying unexpected visits to the farmer’s market
