Happiness is.....

I've been in a great mood lately. It could be the insane amount of sleep I've been getting this summer (I'm just storing it up like a camel because I know school is starting soon and I'll be getting up at 6:30). It could be that my kids are at an age where I don't have to entertain them 24/7.  Could be that I've decided to be a happier person, I kind of think it's a choice. That's just my opinion. Anyhow, I thought I'd share what is making me happy right now in my life.

These two little people make me happy. We've been having fun together this summer. We like to go into town and get ice cream as much as possible. Well, they get ice cream and I get ice tea.

Going for walks down this old country road. I seemed to have buggered up my hip so I've been walking fast instead of running, which is fine with me (and my hip). Usually no cars go by which gives me ample opportunity to talk to the horses and cows that I pass in the fields, without looking like a complete whack job.

This cute guy makes me happy. This week we celebrated our thirteenth wedding anniversary. I'm a lucky gal.

Fresh produce from the garden brings a smile to my face (my cute little garden helpers do too). This might have been the only two squash I harvested before the plants were annihilated, which made them even more tasty I suppose. The cucumbers produced for about two weeks before the bugs took them out.

Happiness is: a brand new pair of running shoes. I might have tried on each and every pair of shoes in that store to finally find these pair.  I haven't replaced my running shoes since before the half marathon two years ago. These feel so much better.

My little weirdos. Seven and four years old, it's a good age. They are friends and play fairly well together (as long as they get enough sleep....all hell breaks loose if they don't). A couple of months ago Greta asked if she could sleep up in Wesley's room and we decided it might be a nice change for them during the summer. So on the weekends we pull out the small mattress that lives under his bed and she goes upstairs to sleep in his room. They play and read books and it's like a small sleepover. I don't know how long it will continue but for now they really look forward to it.

Happiness is a good choice! It makes life easier.

Looking forward to giving those 2 cuties a big hug.
