13 Happiness Notes

Despite the reason we're here in Perth, or perhaps because of, I've found myself really appreciating the small things that make me happy every day.  

- Lovely husband C. and I part way through our morning walk  from Scarborough Beach to Trigg -
                                      
Waking up early to walk along a perfect beach before the day gets underway

Composing and taking a photo that completely captures the emotion in a moment

Hearing my nieces giggle as they lick a bowl we've used for baking

Riding my (vintage*) bike around a pretty lake as the sun is setting

My first sip of freshly squeezed juice in the morning

Getting lost in a new novel as a story unfolds and the characters evolve

Fresh flowers filling the house with bright colours and lovely fragrances

My summer tan on my feet (in the shape of my trusty pair of Havaianas)

Bright patterned maxi-skirts paired with a white tank

Tousled, salty and sun-streaked summer hair

What's making you happy right now?

From Perth, with love xox

* Seriously real vintage… my bike from my childhood years, dusted off and repaired and polished to within an inch of its life

That´s so nice, great post and I think that we´re so stressed every day to even acknowledge such things. I´d say that music and hugging my boyfriend is what makes me happy these days. We should appreciate such small things in life not overlook them. :) xoxo Eve.h

Oh I love summertime! It's snowing here in my part of Canada right now! : )
Everything you described sounds so perfect to me! I love a good book too.
That photo is gorgeous!
Enjoy the sunshine!

Hope your trip is going OK :) I love all of your small things that make you happy.

What is making me happy right now is the moment I walk in the door, take off my shoes, throw on sweats, and just get cozy! After busy days at work, this is my ideal time!

Nice little reminder to remember the little things. Things that are making me happy now: caffeinated coffee, my sister's adorable dog and the thought of our honeymoon to come!

I'm so glad you found my blog so I could find yours! It's quite funny because just today I seriously thought of heading over to Perth for the weekend! It was 6 degrees in Canberra this morning!

Walks by the beach, tans, flowers...Wish I were back in Fiji! Organizing a get together for some friends has got me really excited and happy today :)

You couldn't have summed up almost my exact happiness at the moment too - I'm still on my holiday break from Christmas so have managed to drag out blissful days for a month now. I can't wait till my neice is old enough (she's 7 months now) to have sleepovers and we can bake and giggle allll day long :) LOVE this post.
