reasons to be happy

I collect words. It's a passion of mine, really.

case in point: my calendar.
I like to think of it as the little piece of sunshine to my day.
I've had a calendar like this before, each day, I get a list of witty phrases giving me reasons to smile each day.

I've kind of fallen behind in pulling the days away.
A month behind to be exact.
somewhere in-between work, writing for the newspaper, rushing to class, and interviews, my calendar became forgotten.
NO MORE.

I write down my favorite phrases into my Happy Book Vol. II.
Maybe one day you'll have the pleasure of meeting Vol. I or get a peek at Vol. II but for now:

APRIL 15th reasons to be happy:
1. a music room
2. cottage cheese
3. effortlessness
4. caribbean schooners
5. "early bird" specials
6. books of nostalgia
7. miniature desserts
8. secret gardens
9. Connecticut antiquing
10. flattering makeup

things to be happy about.

Vol. II list

month's worth

haha I DEFINITELY get carried away with the photo editing sometimes :)
I love these happy lists! sometimes I write down lists of good and bad things that happened in my day so I don't feel like time is flying by for nothing. But I too have gotten too busy with "life" and am neglecting my poor journal.

Love the positivity! And your handwriting looks identical to my favorite (and only...but I promise she's be my favorite if I had more than one) sister's. Very cute.
