Happiness Is...

During this magical holiday season, so many things bring a smile to my face and instantly brighten my day.  I've had some stressful days over the past couple of months, but certain things never cease to bring happiness to my heart.  Here are a few of them:

Hugs from my love at the end of the day
Kisses from a shaggy puppy
Ornaments on my Christmas tree that remind me of a particular point in time
Surprise presents that are super thoughtful
My favorite Christmas cookies (sour cream sugar cookies)
Cakebread Chardonnay
Good news at an unexpected time
Smelling my Bath and Body Works Fresh Balsam candle while I stare at the Christmas tree
Phone calls from my friends, just because
Peppermint Milkshakes from Chick-fil-A
Glittery nail polish on my toes
Compliments about my "youthful" appearance
A coupon for my favorite restaurant
Seeing ultrasound pictures of my twin sister's baby 

I'm so thankful for these nuggets of sunshine in my life!  While 2013 has had some difficult moments, I have a feeling that 2013 is going to be a great year.  I've been feeling quite thankful lately, and for so many different things.  Thankful to have a stable job.  Thankful to have an amazing, silly, loving husband who makes me giggle every day.  Thankful to have the best family anyone could ask for.  Thankful to have so many wonderful things that bring me joy.  Yup, I'm ridiculously lucky!

What happy little things bring a smile to your face this holiday season?
