Little Things That Make Me Happy

“May you always be the one who sees the light in the little things.”

Happy New Year! 2020 was quite a ride, but I’m remaining hopeful for the future. All of the division we faced last year broke my heart. I don’t know what 2021 has in store, but we can get through it together!

Like most, 2020 forced me to cling to the little things in life… the compact pieces of happiness that we overlook daily. In today’s post, I will be sharing some of my favorite things that put a smile on my face.

Finding extra fries in the bottom of the bag

Clean sheets

When a cat hops on my lap

Finishing a book

Hitting shuffle and my favorite song comes on

A baby’s belly laugh

Taking my bra off after a long day

When something fits in a space perfectly


Opening a fresh bottle of wine

When my scissors start to glide while cutting paper

Twinkle lights

Corny Dad jokes

The cold side of the pillow

Freshly shaved legs

Trying a new recipe and nailing it the first time

The smell of rain

Finally getting a stubborn popcorn kernel out from between my teeth

Tiki bars

Laughing until you cry

A full tank of gas

What are some small things that make you happy?

P.S. Since my birthday is coming up, I am hosting a giveaway on my Instagram! Check it out if you like eyeshadow or The Mandalorian. πŸ˜‰

All my love,

  1. Wow, first of all, freshly shaved legs, clean car and vacuumed, also rain, cloudy days, sunsets, long drives, Starbucks and Dunkin, Binge watching favorite shows, movie binge, cuddles with my husband, spending time with my kids and grand parents….just to name a few. By the way your pictures are amazing!

  2. It’s the little things that make me smile. Stepping outside and getting a breath of fresh air with no mask on my face. A glimpse at the ocean after a few weeks of work. Remembering I don’t have to go to work and I get to hang out with you πŸ˜‰. Your list was great made me smile I would pick several of those too. πŸ’œ
