10 Things Making Me Happy Right Now

Hello! It’s Steph here. With summer coming to an end, I am getting really excited for fall so I thought I would write about 10 things making me happy right now.

  1. The weather is getting cooler which means my house is getting cooler at night. I am a really hot sleeper at night so I love the cold. Weirdly enough, I freeze at work.
  2. Fall decorations. I finished putting them up tonight, lit a candle and turned on my lamps. There’s just something about a cozy house. I’ll be sure to post some pictures later.
  3. Adam is not into mushy stuff and I didn’t think we would be doing anything for our anniversary and I was totally fine with that even though I like that stuff to a degree. But he surprised me when he said he wanted to go somewhere nice for dinner and picked somewhere he knew I would like. He even told them it was our anniversary so there was a nice little surprise when we got there. It’s a sweet memory I will always remember.
  4. We’re going to Bryce Canyon and Zion National Park in a few days and I am really excited to be traveling somewhere we’ve both never been and seeing some beautiful scenery.
  5. Cooler weather also means that yard work will kind of slow down. I know the leaves will be coming but I’m getting closer to not having to mow the lawn. Our backyard is mostly a hill so it is pretty exhausting to mow.
  6. I am already looking at fall recipes and desserts for ideas of things to try. It just puts me in a great mood.
  7. This one is silly but my mom had some of those black and yellow plastic bins from Costco that she didn’t need anymore so she gave some to me. I personally don’t think you can ever have enough of those and I’m pretty happy to use them to organize something even better. I love organizing.
  8. Has anyone seen the movie, “To All the Boys I Loved Before?” It’s a Netflix original. Michelle told me to watch it so I did and then I found out it was based on a book and that there were three books in the series so I bought all three books to read. I haven’t finished them yet but I just watched the movie for the second time. It’s just a feel-good chick flick.
  9. One of my friends from college is a nurse and she was being trained on laser hair removal and she needed some people to practice on. I happily volunteered and she did one treatment on my underarms and I can already see such a difference! It’s funny how exciting it’s been to not have to worry so much about whether or not I remembered to shave and what shirt I was planning on wearing. I can’t wait to go back and finish the treatments.
  10. A girl that was doing my nails told me about a podcast called, “Lore.” Aaron Mahnke tells short true-life scary stories. I’m a wimp with scary stuff and this wasn’t too scary. I started listening to it while I get ready for work in the morning. Each episode is less than 30 minutes so I get to listen to an episode every morning and I’ve really enjoyed it. Luckily there are already quite a few episodes so I haven’t run out of them yet and had to wait for new ones to come out.

It surprised me towards the end that I was having a hard time to come up with things to write about. It was a good reminder for me to be more mindful and look for the things that make me happy. I need to look for the positive and good in things.
