So, here's what's been making me happy recently:

- walks with my husband through fall leaves, especially walks where we visit used book stores and charity shops, searching for the perfect serving bowl

-  perfect chilly weather and drinking hot chocolate at home

- lunch with my friends

- getting a hair-cut!  I've been needing one for ages, but I just moved here, so didn't know where to go.  I've finally found a place, and I'm so excited, because my hair was getting ridiculous.  We won't talk about how long it was since it was last cut.  

- cleaning my house.  It was just reaching that point of needing to be done, so yesterday, I did all those small things (dishes, sweeping, tidying up, wiping down counters, taking out trash) that make you feel like your house is nice again.

- making plans to go home for Christmas.  My sister messaged me yesterday to let me know that it was snowing at home.  Ha!  I love snow, but not yet.  Maybe in a few weeks.  I'm still enjoying the fall.  So for now, I'm grateful that it isn't snowing here and I get to enjoy this season a little longer.

 - colored jeans.  I got my first pair and they are so fun.  They make my usual outfits feel just a bit more interesting, and I love it.

What things are making you happy?

  5. I own 3 pairs of colored jeans and love every single one! They add just the right amount of "spice" to an outfit. I am looking for a perfect cobalt blue pair as we speak...
