Simple Things

Someone asked me recently what simple things make me happy or smile. What a great question! It is so easy to overlook the simple things, especially when life starts to get overwhelming. So here are some of the simple things that brighten my day...when skies are grey ;) 

When the perfect song comes on the radio. 
Bonfire/game nights with my roommates and friends. 
Driving down country roads with the windows down and my radio up. 
Waking up to the sun shining in my window. 
A good hug from someone I care about.
Random hand squeezes. 
Good conversation.
Looking through old pictures of happy memories. 
Grilling out with friends and family.
Spending Saturday morning at the farmer's market and then relaxing with a good book.
Getting a text letting me know someone is thinking about me.
Thursday night concerts in the summer.
The sunshine.
A fresh rain.
A successful shopping trip.
Squeaky cheese curds.

Always remember the simple things....and smile :)
