Five things to be happy about {five things friday link-up #7}

“Summer afternoon – Summer afternoon; to me those have always been the two most beautiful words in the English language.”

― Henry James

Perfectly sunny picnics and beautiful days at the beach (followed by bubblegum flavored gelato, naturally).We’ve spent every day this week outdoors, exploring our little neighborhood and finding all the hidden treasures within, while loving every minute of these gorgeous sun-filled days… surely they’ll last forever!

Happy Five Things Friday, friends! 🙂

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:

  • a dusty gray, a soft violet, a vibrant orange, a creamy beige, a peachy pink
  • the crackling rind of roasted marshmallows
  • cozying up with a book
  • starlight and moonglow, soft rain and sea breezes, shimmering sunsets and breathtaking vistas
  • doing anything other than what you are supposed to be doing

  1. I haven’t done a post, sorry, but this week I am happy because the sun has been shining, I had coffee with a quite friend, I spent time with my elderly parents, I watched the wind blowing through the trees, and I made time to sit and sew.
