fabulous friday // happy thoughts & a list

blogs are a weird thing. Communication is a weird thing. like, in real life you have tone and body language and facial expression as clues to what the person is really trying to convey. On the internet or texting or whatever you lose so many of the most important elements of communications. Words can only goes as far as words. 

and that's left me feeling kind down lately, because I never know if it's a good idea to post something, to leave something unsaid. Subtlety is a lost art over the internet. 

So I don't mean to sound sappy when I say this stuff, but heck, I am so thankful for life. I mean, what's not to be thankful for?

So here's a list of things that make me happy in winter, in no particular order.
  • Andrew McMahon songs 
  • hot tea with lots of cream
  • birds singing outside, ready for spring
  • blinding sunshine reflecting off the snow
  • printed photos
  • big family dinners because there are a lot of people in my family
  • Freshly baked sour dough, fresh out of the over
  • the feeling after finishing a paper or test
  • Rule the World by Take That
  • Reading books with good prose
  • blaring the radio
  • talking about summer plans & road trips
  • piping hot soup
Today I hit 900 followers on pinterest. and that made me really excited. (:

Something cool I found on the internet that left me feeling happy and inspired was this : 5 Secrets To Being Happy With Your Photography.

and hey, January is almost done. Let's enjoy what's left!!


  1. woah, congrats on 900 followers!! that would make me excited too :D

    i get what you mean completely about how things can come across the wrong way when you're not talking in person. it's one of the reasons i no longer have facebook. but i think that with blogging, you can go into so much more detail and use more words, better words. that it's pretty much okay, if you know how to use your words - which you do. everything i've read of yours is lovely and i think i'm getting a little of "you" through it. i wouldn't worry about what to post, just be real, if people do take it the wrong way you can clear it up with them and if they don't like it they don't have to read! you're not forcing anybody, we're all here because we enjoy your writing and getting a glimpse into your life :)

    1. you are so sweet. I love reading every single comment you leave here... and every blog post you write! (:
