"I, not events, have the power to make me happy or unhappy today.

I can choose which it shall be. Yesterday is dead, tomorrow hasn't arrived yet. I have just one day, today, and I'm going to be happy in it."

Ten Things That Make Me Terribly Happy

1. Molly, Amber, Lucas and the love they have for one another. It's perfect and inspirational. I want to be like them when I grow up.

2. Lemon Pound Cake Muffins.

3. The excited text messages I get from Brandilyn when I sell a frame in her store.

4. Facebook. There. I said it.

5. The movie The Family Stone. I am especially happy watching it in July because it makes me think of Christmas.

6. Whatever song I can hear Liz and Jacob playing upstairs. Right now. It's so great having friends live in your complex!

7. My pedicure. Especially because it was with Amber and her mom, so the company was good. Especially because I NEVER treat myself to pedicures.

8. My new ceramic coffee mug with a lid that makes it possible for me to leave my house with tea! I haven't used it yet- but it still makes me happy.

9. How much Scott weirdly loves the wart on his hand. He says it makes him unique.

10. My bassinet. Still.


  1. QUESTION. what color do you want your cozy to be? i have a fabulous idea for the embroidered part that i hope works out. but i don't know what color to crochet the cozy.

  2. hmm... mustard yellow. or dark purple. but you know me- black and white will never go unappreciated.

  3. Carrie, Seriously? I love the Happy-diagram so cute, I might have to make my own....

    ps. The story about Molly made me cry at work. Every time the phone rang I had to take deep breaths before I answered. Saddest story I have ever heard. I haven't been able to stop thinking about it. I don't know them, and I hardly know you, but thank you for being a good friend to them. (I know that sounds weird...)


I like to hear all of the beautiful things you have to say.
