Happiness is ...

... a day off with no obligations to anyone or anywhere.

... a new album from one of my favorite musicians.

... tasty beers with good friends on a patio in 70-degree weather.

... sitting in a ballpark, escaping reality for nine innings (or more?).

... a win by one of my favorite sports teams, especially if it's a critical game or against one of the rival teams.

... getting lost in live music for a few hours.

... fresh flowers. Even better if they're a gift from someone.

... reading an entire book in one sitting.

.... a purring cat (or two) on my lap.

... dark roast coffee with the perfect amount of cream and cinnamon added.

... delicious food and thoughtful conversation with someone who both listens and offers valuable insights.

... a hug (or several) from someone I admire and adore. 


As I’ve mentioned before, I am part of a little online blogging group where bloggers share advice, get feedback, and support each other. Once a month, we all write a post on the same topic. Below you’ll find links to all of the wonderful ladies in the group so that you can read about what happiness means to them, too. I highly encourage you to check them out- you might find some new favorite blogs!

What does happiness look like for you?


  1. A good win definitely = happiness!! Hope your tuesday is full of happiness!

  2. Okay, I'm totally agreeing with every single one of these things. My favorite place to be is in a stadium of ANY kind. And live music? YES PLEASE.

  3. Thanks for the post! Love that fortune cookie quote :)

  4. A day off with no obligations to anyone or anywhere. Yes! Yes! Yes!

  5. Cats?? I am fond of but don't have any unfortunatel, I wish someday I tick that out too from the lust above... ☺

  6. Is there greater joy then being able to read, uninterrupted, until you have finished a book? I don't think so. A great list!

  7. This is why we are friends- I love this list!! I can't wait to see a game with you this summer! And get a hug!! :)

  8. It's been far too long since I had a day off with no obligations.

    Great list!

  9. I LOVE fresh flowers! I rarely buy them though because my cats always seem to eat them, but when I can get some and they last... best feeling ever.


  10. A day off with no obligations gets more rewarding the more responsibilities life gives me. Ahh how I long for one of those soon.

  11. Yum I LOVE cinnamon in coffee. And last night I enjoyed a tasty beer with my boyfriend on the patio for the first time this season. Such a great moment. Love your list!

  12. I agree with every single one of these (except I don't drink coffee). Hope you have a happy day :)

  13. These all made me smile!!! :)
