I got this idea from a fellow blogging friend. His post reminded me of the little things in life I enjoy so much. So here goes:
BLT’s. That’s what I had for breakfast today. I’ve discovered it’s the perfect balance of what I need in a meal. Just enough greasy goodness from the bacon, still the fresh crunch of cripsy lettuce, the lovely flavor of a fresh tomato, and a generous layer of cream cheese to smooth things over. Layer it all on a homemade, Rachel friendly tortilla and it’s a smile-worthy thing indeed.
The sound of a camera shutter. I love it. Every time. Sometimes I take pictures simply to hear that sound.
Sunsets. They amaze me, truly. Though they’re not such a little thing, I suppose, in all their grander.
Surprises. They’re the best right now, honestly (Not like, “Surprise! The dog left you a present on the floor!” but like, “Surprise! Your best friend is here!” or “Surprise! Someone sent you a package!”). One good surprise will make my day… maybe even my week.
Christmas decorations. I’m having trouble taking them down, people. I’m doing it, but it’s painful.
A hot cup of tea. Peppermint tea, please? Spoonful of honey?
The little dance my dog does when she’s excited. It’s seriously adorable. I wonder if she knows how cute she is.
Learning about the history of the English language and literature. Call me what you will, I could read about it all day long. It amazes me. I get excited just talking about it!
Snow. Let it snow and I’m a happy girl.
Putting thoughts into words and seeing them on paper.
Towels fresh out of the dryer. They feel so warm and smell so good. Ahhh yes. That makes me smile.
The cats running through the house, chasing shadows, pouncing on each other, and tumbling across the floor.
Friendship. The whole concept of it. Thank you, Lord, for friendship. (That’s a big one, really).
A hug. You know those days… sometimes you just need a hug. Those put a smile on my face.
Potatoes. Mash ’em, fry ’em, put ’em in a stew. Do you realize how many things you can do with potatoes? It’s amazing. Also, potatoes make french fries… and french fries are the way to this girl’s heart. 😉
The word Razzmatazz. It’s fun to write and fun to say.
Sunshine. There’s no other warmth quite the same and no better way to cheer up a day.
Long lists. They make me feel accomplished. A short list just looks sad and lonely. However, I’ll stop now before this list gets too long and you all die of boredom.
That’s all for now!
What are some things that make you smile? Tell me in the comments!
