32 Things That Make Me Happy

Things That Make Me Happy

Last week, I came home to these babies.

Thanks so much, Shari’s Berries, for the most beautiful chocolate covered strawberries I’ve ever seen!

I mean, come on…they were almost way too pretty to eat.


But anyway, they made me super super happy, and that made me want to stop and reflect on all the other things that are making me happy these days.

I’ve been participating in the #100happydays campaign, and I feel like it’s been such a great way to focus on all the good in my life.

Because we all say we want to be happy, right?

But I think the first step is to identify the things that really DO make you happy. And once you’ve figured out what those things are, the best thing you can do is focus on making those things a bigger part of your life.

So here we go…inspired by my delicious Shari’s Berries delivery, here are 32 things that make me happy.

  1. Sleeping in until 10am on a Saturday.
  2. Wearing red lipstick (and not having it go all over my teeth).
  3. Jamming to music on my way to work.
  4. 75 degree weather with zero humidity.
  5. October & November.
  6. My cat, when he’s not meowing at my door at 4am.
  7. Campfires.
  8. Lazy rivers.
  9. Wearing white pants for the first time every Spring.
  10. When someone actually says, “Thank You.” AKA: People who have manners.
  11. Doing random acts of kindness for strangers.
  12. Receiving random acts of kindness FROM strangers.
  13.  Cappuccino.
  14. Netflix marathons with Joe.
  15. Baby kittens, baby monkeys, baby chicks…really, all baby animals. Especially baby goats. Baby goats in pajamas.
  16. The smell of salt water.
  17. Going to bed before 11pm during the work week.
  18. Saving money via couponing.
  19. Peonies.
  20. When Joe turns to me and says, “how does frozen yogurt sound?”
  21. When the outfit I want to wear is actually ironed.
  22. That fresh clean feeling you get when you’ve just brushed your teeth.
  23. Putting on mascara without getting clumps.
  24. Serendipity.
  25. The smell of lavender.
  26. Doing yoga before bed.
  27. Ban.do everything!
  28. Donuts.
  29. When I cook dinner and it’s not an epic disaster.
  30. Champagne.
  31. Packages at my doorstep. AKA, online shopping in general.
  32. Thinking about things that make me happy.

Any of those things sound good to you? Let me know in the comments what kinds of things make you happy! And then…go treat yourself to some strawberries. You know you want to!

    Girl, I am right there with you on #20 and #31. When my husband mentions frozen yogurt I’m pleasantly reminded that he is my soulmate in every way. And for #31, it’s like Christmas every time a package arrives. Amazon Prime is like my Santa Claus.

    online shopping, sleeping until 10 am, and people who say thank you are also among my favorite things! especially people saying thank you. i dont expect flowers or a parade, but a thank you after i do you a favor.
    great list!

    Peonies!!! I love fresh flowers, especially throughout the summer and going into fall. I love seeing what makes other people happy, because sometimes it is just the little things!

    What a fun post! Sleeping in on Saturdays always makes me happy! And I am hoping to do that this weekend. It’s been a tiring week with the transition of back to school!

    Great list of things that make you happy! I love that you wrote them down too – and published them… this will help you remember to “grab them up” probably more! Thanks

    I just love seeing what other people like too! Thank you for sharing a little more about yourself, I can’t wait to do this one day! 😀

    That’s a pretty good list 🙂 Just a couple of things aren’t for me. like red lipstick for example. And I’ve just started with #100happydays . So far I love it.

    Have a wonderful week 🙂
