Well, I can’t say that spring has decided to grace us with its presence quite just yet but we’re making do with a lot of sunshine and a little rain all the same. We need the rain to wash away all of the dust and grime leftover from the snow melt! I wonder if it’s spring where you are. Chicago has to catch up with the season!
I was tagged this past week on Instagram to participate in the #HappyTag, which I thought was a really nice thing to pass along. If you don’t follow me there, here is what my Happy List looks like:
10 Things That Make Me Happy 🙂

I would love to know what your Happy List is, if you care to share! Thanks again to @addictedplanner for tagging me! Sharing like this is so much fun! 🙂
Speaking of my Happy List, I thought I’d share some of the tidbits from this past week that made me happy:
❤︎ Shopping with my SIL and her beautiful baby Grace for some fun spring and summer outfits. I love going to Janie & Jack to buy beautiful clothes for the little ones in my life!
❤︎ New tea from Teavana in fun spring/summer flavors. I think these will taste great both hot and cold!
❤︎ Checking out the fun cakes on display at my local Whole Foods. They have such an incredible bakery at our store. The bunny stuck in the cake is my favorite!
❤︎ The funny and cute accessories we keep on our bathroom counter that make me smile every time I see them. Don actually uses the Nosy Glasses Holder (which are apparently actually called Eyebods) I put in his stocking for Christmas this year. It’s very handy so he always knows where his glasses are when he wakes up in the morning. I’ve been loving my elephant ring tree that came in my March PopSugar Must Have Box. I no longer worry about my rings somehow falling into the sink and going down the drain when I take them off to put lotion on even though I’ve always been extremely careful. Seeing these little cuties everyday makes me smile. Plus, they’re both cute and functional! Winner! It’s the little things, you know?
❤︎ Going to a new restaurant in town for Date Nite with Don. We love trying new places! The Curraugh is an Irish Pub style restaurant. We loved the live music and tasty mozzarella sticks.
❤︎ Other things that I didn’t happen to snap for Instagram include rinsing the winter dirt from my dog Winnie’s coat leaving her white and fluffy (happiness is a warm and clean puppy), sleeping in until 7:30 on the weekend (rebel!), enjoying tea in my rather large bunny mug (bigger mug = more delicious tea), playing with my new tarot cards (more on this later), meals with family (joy is sharing good food with good company), and trip planning with Don (it looks like we’ll be sharing some fun adventures this year!).
I love hearing from you, as always, and enjoy reading your comments. Please keep them coming! I hope you are well and finding joy in everything you can, both big and small.
