A month of giveaways….. take two!

In my many travelings thru the cyber world, I came across a question that has not left my mind in a very long time. It got me thinking about all the things that make me happy, or make me realize why I am happy. I really like to make lists (ask my hubby- he hates my lists!), so I made a happy list to hang in my office. Its a visual reminder to me each time I sit at my desk.

Excerpts from My happy list:

Swimming with the family
Listening to summer thunder storms roll across the valley
Hearing Miss A practice the piano
Seeing my husband walk thru the door after a long day at work
Watching my garden grow
Reading bedtime stories (not sure if its the cuddling, or knowing bedtime is just minutes away!)
Quiet time with a good book
Trying a good new recipe
101 Gourmet Cake Bites being released in less than a month! 😉

So I thought I’d pose the question to all of you.

    And after an afternoon/evening full of running kids to soccer, basketball, dance, piano lessons, pep band practices and on and on … a nice glass of wine or an aromatic cup of cappucino, a great book (an actual book…with pages…made of actual tree pulp…that you lick your finger to grip and turn), and a comfy chair are like floating in the arms of Heaven!!!
