happiness is...


...falling asleep under a blanket cuddled up to your littlest love with the windows open, listening to the sound of chirping birds and the smell of rain on a Sunday.

...a big ol' bowl of ice cream.

...a full night's sleep, I think. I can't remember for sure because it's been well over 6 months since I've experienced that. But I think I'd be pretty freakin' happy after a full night's sleep!

...sorting through the photos on my phone and not being able to delete any because the people in them, the memories they hold, are just too good.

...watching my husband with our kids. Nothing sexier than a good daddy who owns his role and is adored by his little ones (and wifey... when he's not driving me crazy ;) ha ha, I kid!)

 ...when your 3 year old randomly says, "momma? I lub you!" multiple times throughout the day.

...big gummy smiles! I'll miss that when James gets his first tooth! (It made me sad when Mia got hers as well, but then I fell in love with her toothy smiles, so I know that will happen with James as well!)

...when friends, some of our bests come to visit and we don't miss a beat despite the time and distance between us.

...laughing until we cry.

...game night... cause that only rolls around once every, 3 years? Maybe someday Eric will fall in love with games...

...family movie night and Eric's air popped popcorn.

...making goals happen and watching dreams become a reality! It may not always be a happy road, or an easy one, but it's worth it to fight through the hard times to create a better life; our life!

Those are all great examples of happiness, especially that first picture. I love your attitude towards life and happiness, it exudes joy. Must be why we are such good friends.

Air popped pop corn is the best!
