Happiness is… Leap Day – 29 Smiley Things

In honor of Leap Day, which only happens once every four years, I’d like to celebrate the 29 days of February by sharing 29 things that make me smile.  The list is random and is simply what pops into my mind next.  Just 29 things that are really, deep down, always makes me smile… smile worthy things.

  1. Sunshine on my face
  2. When our girls giggle
  3. When Mr. Rosey walks in the door
  4. My Ugg slippers
  5. Putting my head on my pillow and falling asleep
  6. Pink pedicured tootsies
  7. The sound and smell of the ocean
  8. Sade “Kiss of Life”
  9. Hugs from Mr. Rosey and just knowing…
  10. My Grandma’s blueberry muffins
  11. Going out with girl friends
  12. Sandals and sundresses and carefree summers
  13. My sisters – there’s nothing like a sister
  14. Clean kitchen counters and floors
  15. Reading a good book
  16. Our girls reading books and knowing they are lovin’ it
  17. Pansies and hydrangeas
  18. In the car, listening to our girls sing out of tune and loudly, because they have headphones on and don’t know they are singing out of tune and loudly
  19. Sissy, Lillian and Savannah – Nieces are better than chocolate
  20. Chocolate anything and everything
  21. Chris’s smile and playfulness
  22. Visits from Mimi and Poppa, Patty and Nathan
  23. Jane Austen books
  24. Ice cream cones and cupcakes and cherry pie (not at the same time)
  25. Mary J. Blige “Just Fine”
  26. When I see our girls are really, truly buddies
  27. Birthday parties and a pretty table set for a family gathering
  28. Aunt Judy’s creativity with paper
  29. Guardian angels

Whoa!  That was hard to keep the list to 29 smiley things.  Once I got going, my brain took off like a rocket and my fingers couldn’t keep up with the stream of thoughts going through my mind.  And yes, I know.  I know I technically have more than 29 smiley things, but it’s my list and I can combo things if I want to…. so there!  I’ll have to do this again, cuz there’s still more in my head.

What makes you smile?  Have you thought about it?  Please leave a comment, because I’d love to know and smile too!
