These are a few of my favorite things

2. Make a list of 30 things that make you smile.

  1. The smell outside after it rains. (I know there’s a word for this, but I can never remember it.)
  2. PUPPIES. Literally any puppy.
  3. While we’re on the subject, any baby animal. I can’t help it.
  4. Coffee. Preferably iced.
  5. Getting to talk to my dad on the phone.
  6. Catching up with an old friend.
  7. Kayaking.
  8. Seeing my employees reach a goal they’ve been working towards.
  9. Sunflowers.
  10. Listening to someone describe what they’re passionate about.
  11. Ice cream.
  12. Opening the mail and actually getting something good.
  13. Watching friends go from completely sober to a little tipsy after a few glasses of wine.
  14. Finding adorable baby things for my friends who are pregnant while simultaneously not having to have a baby myself.
  15. Climbing to the top of a mountain.
  16. Being near the ocean.
  17. Getting to watch someone “create.” Photography, painting, music- doesn’t matter.
  18. Watching my mom and dad interact with each other. They’re freaking adorable.
  19. Christmas Eve traditions with my brother.
  20. Seeing a rainbow.

  26. Bonfires.
  27. Waking up in the woods after a night of camping.
  28. Having someone tell you something you can tell makes them feel vulnerable.
  29. A good pun will get me every time.
  30. Being so content in one moment you just can’t help but smile.
