Sometimes really good things happen, but I don't have enough to say about them to warrant a whole post. Or maybe I don't have any pictures of the good things, and I do hate a blog post without any pictures. So I want to start doing happy posts like all these girls who do happy posts and have the cutest blogs and isn't it just the best idea. 

Also, the intro class for my major is called Creating a Good Life Through Recreation. It was kind of a fluffy, feel-good class, but I really took a lot away from it. We read some great books about positive psychology and authentic happiness, and it all inspired me to pay more attention to the things - big and small - that make me happy. Blogging has always been a good way for me to do that, but now we're taking it one step further and talking about the really small things that usually aren't mentioned. The things that sometimes make me happiest.

So here it is everyone, my very first happy list! Be sure to check out the other blogs that inspired it (they're linked where I mentioned them up above)!

// living close enough to my sisters that I can be around to celebrate birthdays / aka having a great excuse to go back to Color Me Mine / also finding a $10 ring holder to paint + having a coupon we all used / bringing the ring holder home and Stefan asking, "How do you use it?" / warm enough weather in February that kids are out selling lemonade / my sweet Cub Scouts saying thank you one million times as they left our meeting last week / feeling more confident when I cook all my mom's dinner recipes / becoming a master at Smith's cards + coupons + gas points + saving $$$ / our new event at work that we thought might be a bust is definitely not going to be a bust! / Stefan coming to all my work events + always wearing his STAB t-shirt + brining me dinner or Dr. Pepper / Provo Art Stroll + finding so many beautiful things! / Stefan's grandparents making us Sunday dinner and leaving it on our kitchen counter while we were napping / motivating myself to get through this week because Friday is our one year wedding anniversary! / deciding for the first time ever I wanted Stefan to spoil a surprise and tell me what he had planned + him actually telling me + and then not regretting my decision at all because now I get to be excited about it all week! //
