here's to happiness

a while back i used to put on these 'here's to happiness' lists where people could email me the things that made them ever so happy. what a great way to see all the amazing and simple things out there that can bring us joy. anywho, a few days back i received a lovely email from nikki who wanted to bring it all back. so to kick it all off again:

10 things that make Nikki ever so happy

1. a big box of mocca-creme filled white chocolates
2. the smell of spring and fresh flowers
3. a shopping day with friends in the city
4. traveling and that feeling just before you leave home
5. not having to study for a weekend
6. my boyfriend and his little surprises and enormous patience
7. baking cookies
8. a walk through the woods
9. going outside to take pictures, then spend hours editing them afterwards
10. wearing dresses without tights!

so what makes you terribly happy? send me an email with your list, along with a fun picture, and get some blog lovin'. happy wednesday!!
p.s. mr taylor left me today for a business trip. a little lonely over here and need a little cheering up.

  16. Hi Tanya, thank you so much for posting this! It seems like the mail got lost in the internet space since I had sent this mail months ago! I noticed it only arrived a few days ago which is really funny. If you would ever love to write a guestpost on my blog, you are always more than welcome! x

  18. oh i'll send you an email soon ;)

    cheer up, being alone from time to time is a good thing to put up with yourself! I know, though, that sometimes when you are happily in love with someone it feels like you are more you when you are together than when you are alone, but it's a really good thing to learn not to be lonely whenever you are alone! I get a bit bored when i'm home alone, but then i get a book and read a litte, clean up the house or make huge messes with paper & glue, fabric and threads, or just being by myself thinking in silence. I thing that's quite a good thing :) (of course, just for one day or two! haha)

  19. What a brilliant post idea! I loved reading her list. Perhaps I too will squeeze in some time to write up a "here's to happiness" list. Though I bet your inbox is flooded with lists already. Haha

  30. This is such an absolutely sweet idea! When I was a teenager I kept a long running list of all the silly things that made me happy, to pull out when the stupidity of high school was getting me down; there was things like chewing gum in the shower and baby pandas on the list :) I haven't thought about that in a long time, but this post really took me back to it. I think it's wonderful that you share these on behalf of others and, frankly, I just might start working on a list of my own to send you :)
    xox,
