Smile :)

My GoogleReader is full of STUFF. I won't say junk, as I generally take the time to read almost every article that pops up, but it is FULL. I have some humorous daily cartoons, news from the places I call or have ever called home, some family that I follow, friends from all of my worlds, and then a number of student affairs bloggers. Becca, who I follow on Twitter, posted (in the midst of the busy season) 20 things that make her smile, and it inspired me.

What makes you smile?

Ellie, my 4-year-old lab puppy

A freshly lit candle

Waterfalls

A good cup of coffee

The changing of the leaves

Ripe tomatoes

The lake (any lake will do, really)

Chicago's skyline, day or night

My mother

The first snowfall of the season

Daffodils

A full cookie jar

Completing a good book

The mountains

Spiced Apple Cider

Laughter, especially from babies or small children

The smell of the Sound

Wearing jeans and a hoodie

A fire in the fireplace

That smell that comes with the change of seasons



Waking up early enough to walk across the street and see the sunrise over the lake <3

II'd love to hear what makes you smile...please share :)
