Happiness is…

…a cup of tea in my favorite mug.

…tiny arms wrapped around my neck.

…starting a new book.

…being the one who can kiss it and make it all better.

…fuzzy socks on chilly toes.

…a husband who quotes Gilmore Girls.

…freshly painted nails.

…dance parties with 3-year-olds.

…friends who are never more than a text away.

…peaceful nap times to help me unwind.

…little girls who share their crackers.

…a husband who always makes my lunch, even after almost 10 years of marriage.

…waking up to new adventures at work or at home every single day.

…sweet, sleeping little girls.

…my lovely, simple, oh so full life.


  1. Your husband quotes Gilmore Girls? That’s awesome. And your life definitely looks full and wonderful to me. :)

    Today, happiness for me is working from home on my husband’s snow day, with said husband making pancakes for breakfast. I’m glad we both have such great husbands. :)

  3. Oh, this is lovely, Erin. Absolutely lovely… and you’ve hit the nail on the head on so many of these points.

    Tonight/this morning, I’m drawing happiness from FINALLY having enough energy to do things again and the quiet moments where I can write and cherish the craft I love.
