50 Things That Make Me Happiest

The winter is upon us and for me, I find myself more down in the winter. Down meaning, less active and fighting those winter blues. Let’s face it, I’m just a warm summer day kind-of-girl! So, if you are like me, you need to focus on the things that make you the happiest.

In my search to continually find #happiness in everyday things, I came across a book called, The Happiness Project by Gretchen Rubin. In this book she discusses all the things that feed into our #happiness and outlines a plan to make your life simpler and basically keep you happy. If you get the chance to buy this book, do it. Once I have completed my very own happiness plan, I’ll share it with you here on the blog.

Until then, here’s a list of 50 things that me so happy! I challenge you to make your own list to help keep your head up on those cold winter days.
