the happy list

I'll be honest. It was one of those days.


I'm tired. Wasn't feeling motivated. And yeah, not in the greatest of moods. But then, as I sat on the lovely screened in porch catching up on general blog loveliness that hey, life's not half bad. Yeah, parts of today? Not so good. But the good overrides the bad, even in today, and there, as usual, was loads more to be happy than upset about. 

So! With all that in mind, I present to you, the happy list. The little things that to me are the big things. Maybe some of my happy will travel all across blog-land to your heart today and bring a smile to your face. I hope so. 



today's happy list:

Our home-grown pumpkins on the front steps. They're too cute!
videos I'd forgotten about, on my phone, of friends when we went out to breakfast this summer. talk about a pick-me-up! 

Polaroid photos.
Scarves.
Vanilla tea.
Sparkly/glittery things.
Rain. + Thunderstorms.


Tire swings.
Trampolines.


Stargazing.
Friends.
Bulky sweaters.
Chocolate sprinkles.
Fuzzy socks.
Country life.
Picnics. 
Treehouses.
Nail polish.

    Happy list:
    Flower gardens.
    Wish I had one.
    Good health.
    Glad I have it.
    Handwritten snail mail from a friend.
    Wish there was more.
    Collections.
    And the stories behind them.
    Kids at school bus stops.
    The only time we see them at all.
    Lush, green grass.
    Corn fields.
    Downpours.
    For hours and hours.
    Long days.
