That Happy Place.. I Mean List

It's been an interesting week friends.
The kind of week where you learn about yourself, your priorities, and the people who matter.
I'm thankful for those lessons....
I guess it's all part of that whole growing up thing.

By Thursday evening I realized that I needed to slow down and appreciate the little things.
On that note, I give you...
A Happy List
1) Finding old pictures that were taken when Nadav and I first started dating.. you know back when I was 18 and we were both still in college. I just found the photos from the first Valentine’s Day we spent together and like any sappy girl who gets a little nostalgic…. I cried my eyes out (cough 3 times).
A long time ago
2) Taking some of the autistic kids I work with to the park. It was so inspiring to see how the other kids at the park found ways to play with them.
3) Whipped cream... and no not in that dirty way, sheesh..
4) Realizing and accepting that I can't please everyone.. and more importantly, that I don't need too.
5) Baking pretty things (and Funfetti cake mix that makes baking pretty things really easy)
6. Living up the hill from this. Speechless
7. Knowing my parents are coming to visit this weekend. They only live an hour away, but I always miss hearing the embarrassing things my dad says and my mom's quiet ways of showing that she loves me.
8.  That time we saw sea turtles while snorkeling in Maui (and that time a hugeeee sea turtle swam right into Nadav's face and scared the crap out of him). Wait what? Heh
9. Quiet evenings alone at a coffee shop. Sometimes I forget how much I value and need that time to myself.
10. Friends that support my passions, and want to help me make my dreams a reality.

Wishing you all a happy happy weekend.

First off, funfetti cake mix is THE best! Sorry to all that bake naturally but you cannot help loving the funfetti. Secondly, I love that you're a sap. Sappy people like us appreciate all the little things, and we probably remember every detail of every little thing. Love your happy lists!

So glad to know that I'm not the only one that bawls like a baby when I'm going though old pictures of the boyfriend & I lol.
I can't control myself.

#3 looks delicious!
And #2 makes my heart happy.

A big fat AMEN to #4!

Have a wonderful weekend, girl!
