Happy Little Things

Some days I feel like all I can do is hang on till bedtime. That's the time when I can sit down, unearth my secret stash of chocolate, and think about how I can make tomorrow better. It is in those quiet moments that I try to forget my many faults, weaknesses, and cluttery corners of my house (okay, I always try to forget those things), and think of the things that make me happy(chocolate helps immensely).

My darling friend Stina made a list of good things to think about that I loved, so I thought I'd share some of my own.

Things that make Star happy:

*bed head* *The smell of rain* *weeping willows* *odd shaped band aids* *fortune cookies*
*caterpillar hunting* *tree houses* *camping with cousins* *bread pudding* *star stickers*
*tiny painted toes* *pop-up books* *moon shadows* *first tracks* *80's toys* *fresh basil*
*costumes* *unicorns and pegasus* *yoga* *lilacs* *chocolate mint truffles* *tight hugs*
*wind chimes* *silky nightgowns* *singing lullaby's* *family prayer* *belly button lint*

I could keep on going, I love making happy lists, but I'll save some for another day.

Check out Stina's etsy shop where she sells wonderful handmade jewelry.

Oh, and I also love: *comments on my blog*
I would love to see your list!

This post reminds me that you need to write and illustrate children's books.
