five things that make me happy

You know what's harder than a Physics exam that you haven't studied for? Posting in your blog after experiencing a drought! And so, here is that awkward "I'm sorry I haven't posted in a while" apology post. Life happens and if you don't already know, I have an attention span of a fish which makes it that much harder for me to sit still and work on my blog. So here I am blogging away first thing this morning to share the 5 things that make me happy! :)

ONE :: Husband

Duhhh. I spend most of my time with this guy and let me just say that I consider myself incredibly blessed to have a guy like my Husband in my life. We have been together for almost 5 years now and married for 3 but believe me when I say it feels like we got married just yesterday. There is just something about a man who knows how to treat a girl right. Almost 5 years later...he still treats me like a princess and knows how to put a smile on my face!

TWO :: Traveling

Let me be honest with y'all-- I don't have a dream car and I sure as heck don't have a dream home. My one and only dream is to travel the world. My Husband and I have been fortunate enough to travel a lot in the last few years and I am so grateful that I had the opportunity to experience the beauty of this world with my husband by my side. If there is an application to become a luxury world traveler, sign me up ASAP! 

{one day we will travel the world on a magic carpet ;)}

THREE :: Art

Painting + photography + DIY projects = a one happy gal! I think I have mentioned this before but I got the crafty gene in my family, yay! Give me a blank canvas to paint or a beautiful place to photograph and I will love you forever. My sweet Hubs recently bought me the GoPro Hero 4 that I absolutely cannot wait to use on our next trip! 

FOUR :: Ice Cream

Remember when I said I could never go on a diet because of my love for ice cream? Well, I wasn't lying when I said that. Funny story from a few weeks ago-- I was having a bad day because I had missed an important appointment and while I was crying to my Husband about that, all he had to say was, "lets go get some ice cream" and I kid you not when I say my frown turned upside down in about a millisecond. We STILL laugh about that incident.

Five :: Candles

I think I have a slight candle obsession. Just walking into bath and body works and seeing all the pretty candles there makes me happy. It's SO hard to walk out of there without any candle purchase. Is that normal? Please tell me yes! The sweet cupcakey smelling candles are my absolute favorite. Can you tell how much I love desserts--even in the form of a candle? Lol. 

Well, that is it folks! I never thought narrowing down to just 5 things that make me happy would be so hard. I'm just glad ice cream made the cut, LOL. 

Happy Monday! :)
