I’m all for favorite things and obsessions and what not, but there are so many little parts of my life that make me happy, too.
Dogs: Most notably, my dogs. When my mom or dad sends me pictures of them it honestly makes my day. There’s something about their little faces that just puts me in a good mood.
Honey Wheat Pretzel Twists: I’m not even joking when I say that this was my treat whenever I had a bad day at my internship last semester. They’re just so….good. It could be funny, or it could be sad.
New Socks: I’m sorry, but if you don’t love putting on a new pair of fluffy, clean socks, there’s something wrong with you. They make my feet just so…happy. Bonus points for really cute patterned new socks.
Clean Sheets and Pillowcases: My favorite day is laundry day, not because I love doing laundry
because I hate it but because I think I sleep a million times better when my sheets and pillowcases are fresh and clean.
Freshly Made Bed: I try to avoid my bed during the day, especially after making this resolution for myself, but, if there’s one thing I do love it’s making my bed perfectly and refluffing my pillows and curling up with my iPad under my napping blanket. And yes, I have a napping blanket.
Green Tea Lemonade: I used to be strongly opposed to Starbucks after a near allergic reaction over 7 years ago. However, necessity and convenience forced me to conquer this aversion and I haven’t looked back. My favorite drink on rough mornings (even in the cold) is a nice green tea lemonade. It’s so good and gives me the perfect pick me up. I always order a grande and I always wish I had a venti. It’s that good.
Thoughtful Texts: Whether they’re from Andrew or my mom or a close friend, a sweet or funny little message when I’m having a rough day will always boost my mood, at least a little. It’s always just nice to know someone’s thinking about you, especially on the days when
I hate the world it feels like everyone hates me.
