Various Little Keys to my Happiness

Finishing my errands & chores on a Sunday early so I can have nothing but uninterrupted me time on Sunday evening.

Coffee walks on the Oregon Coast immediately upon waking up, followed by a huge brunch about an hour later.

A tired dog (more prone to snuggle).

The peaceful serenade of a fan to sleep with, in the hottest of summers and in the coldest of winters (I absolutely loathe sleeping in pure silence).

Office goodies in the break room that are not of the donut or cookie variety.

Text chains with multiple friends that just go on and on and on about anything and everything throughout everyone's days. They are always nonstop sources of entertainment.

Listening to Jay when he's on business calls. Sometimes I wish we had to be so formal to one another because he sounds pretty foxy when he is.

A flood of gorgeous lighting and manual camera settings.

Coconut sorbet.

Staying in hotels.

Very stealthily fleece-lined black tights.

Off-the-shoulder tops.

An Americano w/ Coconut or Almond Milk.

Quoting movies & shows into the ground.

Huge, old, ugly but cozy beyond belief blankets. 

A cookbook which could also be misconstrued as a photography book. Eating & gorgeous photos? I think my stomach & heart are full.

Watching squirrels bound about trees. I truly find them so unbelievably adorable.

Throwing the football at the park on a hot day ... even better when you have a home base blanket (an ugly one of course!) to retreat back to for snacks, cold drinks & magazines.  It don't get much better than that.

And that's the name of that tune- Happy St. Patty's Day!

I sleep with a fan every night too!! I need to. Lol aww to the snuggly, sleep puppy and I love the football toss idea. Although, I may skip the football and just on the blanket reading a magazine. :)

I love sleeping in silence but don't mind the ceiling fan creaking when it's called for.

Coffee walks are my favorite. Especially if they happen when I'm on a coast.

Is there such a thing as coldest of winters in Oregon? :P

Pat Hatt said...

Seems not just me. The fan has been on every night for me since I was like 4 lol

Jen Hsieh said...

Ah, I love this. And totally with you on peaceful Sunday evenings after a productive day. 100%.

You typed out a lovely happiness list. I hope your Saint Patrick's Day was a happy one as well and that you, Chandler and Jay have a wonderful Spring (only two days away!)

I really like silence. It really annoys me when the TV's on and blaring at 40 volume at 11 at night :P

Caitlin @ Candyfloss & Persie said...

Yay for fans!!! And haha, I can see you being rough and tumble with a football for some reason.

Caitlin @ Candyfloss & Persie said...

A must!

Caitlin @ Candyfloss & Persie said...

Oh gosh, I know. The best way to clear the sleep fog!

Caitlin @ Candyfloss & Persie said...

Stop bragging about all the snow you get! ha. yes, it gets cold here!

Caitlin @ Candyfloss & Persie said...

So you love a fan? My kind of man!

Caitlin @ Candyfloss & Persie said...

yes! So necessary. I don't always get them.

Caitlin @ Candyfloss & Persie said...

Is it only two days away??? (sooner now) - crazy!! Thank you, PB!

Caitlin @ Candyfloss & Persie said...

Oh gosh I hate the silence... but I HATE a TV blaring more. It's really the white noise I need such as a hum of a fan. :)

Kara said...

I literally want EVERYTHING on this list. Like, I think we are soulmates.
