one--my daughter and my husband (and my best friend)
two--the long history I have with him (we've been together since I was eighteen and he was nineteen) :)
three--drawing owls, seeing owls, anything pretty much with owls (but of course, you already knew that)!
four--collecting books, reading stories and getting lost in them
five--small gestures of kindness from friends and from unlikely people
six--the mysteries (and inspirations) of nature
seven--the magic of pretending and making memories
eight--letters and parcels in the mail (who doesn't like this?)
nine--learning to become a wee gardener of sorts
ten--many old, vintage things, including houses I can pretend to live in
eleven--a good cup of tea in quiet solitude
Okay, so I snuck in an extra one. But this one goes to eleven (for you Spinal Tap fans). The truth is there are so many things to make one happy. I think I kind of needed this, especially this week, when things have been a bit rough. We need to be reminded of happy things, right?
Well, I think I will not tag anyone formally this time but please, feel free to make your own little list of happy things :)
