50 Things That Make Me Happy

I hope you’re having a great week so far! Things are starting to pick up for school so it’s getting a little hectic for me. Since it is getting a little hectic for me, I decided to do a more personal post today and let you get to know me!

Today I wanted to share the 50 things that make me happy tag! I didn’t realize how hard it would be to come up with 50 things that make me happy! Anyway, here they are!

1. The beach. Growing up in SoCal, the beach is definitely something that I grew up with. The sounds of the ocean are relaxing.

2. Sunshine. Who doesn’t love a good dose of Vitamin D?!

3. Cats. I love love LOVE cats, especially Jingles and Nilla {our two cats}.

4. Cacti. I mean, I have a cactus crop top, I would say I’m obsessed

5. Beautiful scenery. Come on, who doesn’t?

6. Blogging. Blogging is something that has been my outlet and made me happy for almost to years now.

7. My family. As frustrating as family can be, I do love my family. Whenever I’m able to go see them, it always fills my heart!

8. Matthew, duh! Like, come on now.

13. That feeling when you get some bomb new clothes. It always makes me happy getting a new outfit or two.

29. Freshly washed sheets. Nothing feels better than nice clean, warm sheets after a long day.

30. Flowers. Flowers are just beautiful!

31. A clean apartment. A clean apartment means a clean mind.

32. Learning new things myself. I love learning new things, all of the time. This whole blogging thing is a learning process.

41. Date night with Matt. I love getting to spend quality time with Matt, not at the airport.
