Five things to be happy about {five things friday link-up #3}

School is officially out for Summer and we’ve been taking full advantage of these beautifully sunny days here in Vancouver. We’ve had a week full of discovering beaches, having picnics at the park, and staying up way past our bedtimes. Wishing everyone a fantastic Summer and a very happy Five Things Friday!

Here are this week’s five things at random from Barbara Ann Kipfer’s book, 14,000 Things to be Happy About, plus a five-photo-roundup of things that made me smile this week. Read on for the link-up info.

Five things to be happy about:

  • acclimating oneself to a cold swimming pool, one body region at a time
  • babies eating Cheerios
  • bee-drone days and firefly nights
  • walking barefoot in the park
  • cheesecake and espresso

    1. Thanks so much, Tami! My daughter spotted that heart shell just as we were leaving the beach – we almost missed it! I love finding hidden hearts in nature. 😊 Heading over to your blog now! Hope you’re enjoying your weekend!


    1. Hi Nicole! My oldest is 11 (going on 20). 😂 Happy belated Canada day to you too! We’ve been living in Vancouver for a few months now from the US. It’s gorgeous up here! We haven’t traveled too much, but we plan to soon. Victoria is definitely on our list!
