It is Tuesday!
And, it really is “The Holiday Season”.
Yes, THIS is easily my time of the year. I am thriving now.
Love, love, love.
And, love is-- ACTUALLY-- all around.
I believe in enjoying life to its fullest.
I do think you live longer if you are, indeed, happy. Do not fret about the small stuff in life. Everything WILL work out.
Instead, look at the bright spots.
TAKE a look at everything around you.
What makes you happy?
It can be something simple, like a cup of tea in the corner of your sofa in the afternoon, or a beautiful sunset.
I will make a little list of happiness.
26 things that make ME happy here and NOW!
1, The Holiday Season. I thrive. I love it! I am like a kid.
2, Christmas. Yes, I am, one of many Queens of Christmas. It is like I fall in love with Christmas more and more each year. I am childish, I am excited, I am IN LOVE!!
3, Christmas decorations! The more the merrier! People, do enjoy this season. Start decoration early! Try not to stress too much (I KNOW, easier said than done).
4, The cold weather. Yes, I love it. If I had it my way I would have SNOW on the ground and 25 degrees F, or colder (-3 C) ALL winter LONG! From December to the first day of March. I love the weather right now. We have picture perfect mornings, nice sunny days and COLD starry nights. This chick is IN LOVE!
5, My winter clothes. It is not a secret that I love clothes. I have found my own style, and I seldom fall for trends. My style is skirts, opaques, boots, cardigans and scarves. High heels work for me. Stylish, but not trendy, that is me.
6, Coziness. A home has got to be cozy. I don’t CARE if you follow the latest decorating trends. I really do not think much about the furnitures you own. BUT, I do care about the coziness factor. All the time. The coziness factor is the soul of a home. Always.
7, Peter and Karolina. Always. My family, my friends. I would be nothing without them.
8, Lovely, long dinners with good company.
9, My camera and my computer. I take loads of pictures. To take photos is my biggest hobby. I love my camera, and I love the kick-ASS computer that I upload the pics on.
10, All the Swedish TV-shows that I get to watch on said computer.
11, The wonderful blogs that I read on a daily basis. You all RULE! My cyber friends around the world.
12, My health and my strength. Two things that one can never take for granted.
13, That my daughter is surrounded by a great group of friends that I also happen to know.
15, To live EXACTLY where I live!
16, To write.
17, Owls! Surprised? No, I did not think so...
18, Angels, even though I am a non-religious person.
19, Tea, lots of tea!
20, My occasional caffe latte (pumpkin spice this time of the year).
21, Red wine
22, Crazy, decked out Christmas houses! People that are IN the spirit and GO NUTS this season! Think Clark Griswold!
23, To be out walking in a roaring BLIZZARD! I love, love, love to feel the elements beat down on me. As long as I can go home to a warm house and enjoy a hot drink after the fact!
24, Laughing and bullshitting with friends (I am like Billy Joel, I don’t need clever conversations, I never want to work that hard. AT least not ALL the time)
25, My iPhone where I can access so many things like the radio stations I love, my camera, Instagram and the rest of the apps (BUT, that iPhone is running out of storage)
26, My life!
