10 more things that make me happy

Fellow Canadian blogger, the beautiful Katrina of Kat's Cradle, gave me the Happy 101 award, just a few days after Cassie did. I'm so glad, because I had a hard time sticking to just ten the first time around. So here, without further ado, are ten more things that make me happy.

1. Staying at B&Bs in charming old houses.

2. The arrivals area at the airport.

3. Going out for breakfast and having omelettes or eggs benny or fancy waffles. The Blue Fox is my favourite.

4. Long-distance phone calls.

5. Funny old movies. The Long, Long Trailer is absolutely hilarious. Tears-rolling-down-your-cheeks, your-sides-ache-from-laughing-so-hard-hilarious. Trust me.

6. Sitting on the beach in the summer with a cold drink. Warm sand on your toes, the smell of the salty sea air in your hair.

7. Film adaptations of Jane Austen novels. Oh, Mr Darcy... (Colin Firth's portrayal of Darcy is just perfect, don't you think?)

8. Re-reading all my old journals. Oh, the drama!

9. My kids' artwork on the kitchen walls.

10. This photo, of Alan proposing to me! I love how he managed to capture that moment on film (hurrah for the timer function on our camera!)

Thanks, Katrina, for reminding me to think of all these happy things. It's been a lovely way to start my Sunday.


  1. Hurrah for the timer function, love the picture, no wonder that is one of the things that makes you happy...

  2. That is such a wonderful photo Erin! I hope my partner thinks to do that, i might have to hint to him.

  3. Aww...this photo is so priceless! I always hope that someday when a man proposes to me, that he's smart enough to do something similar! Cute, cute, cute :)

  4. What a great picture - I love it - Your reaction was similiar to mine but ours is not captured forever - way to go Alan! Where did he propose?

  5. That picture is fantastic - was it a complete surprise? The looks on your face says maybe it was?
    Well done Alan!


Yay! I love comments.
