here's to happiness {by Teaka}

what better way to celebrate "thanksgiving-ness" than to share the simple things in this world that just make us happy. i have just adored going through and reading all of your emails and lists, and it just reminds me how very grateful i am for all of you. truly, i have so much fun waking up in the morning knowing that i will be writing up a post for all of you to read, enjoy and interact with. so thank you.
now, onto the good stuff...
10 things that make Teaka ever so happy
1. Finishing a sewing project.
2. Cooking comfort sweets like muffins or chocolate chip cookies
3. When my husband takes me out for dinner and a walk. That's the perfect date night for me because there's so much time for talking.
4. Which is another thing, long talks and chatting with friends.
5. Visiting family back home in Saskatchewan. I'm so proud to be apart of a large family!
6. Hearing the sound of the furnace turn on.
7. Being told I look like my mom.
8. Making someone laugh. It's rare I actually do as my jokes are lame. So on the occasion I do it makes me excited inside.
9. That nostalgic feeling just before Christmas. 
10. My home. It's a simple unit in a four-plex but I've never be so in love with a little home as I currently home. 


so what makes you terribly happy?
