Five things to be happy about {five things friday link-up #10}

Did anyone else forget it’s Friday? 😳 Coming in a little late today with my FTF post – oops!

We made up for all those lazy days we had last week with a brand new week packed full of gorgeously sunny days and outside adventures. We explored our beautiful city, visited the zoo and spent way too much time at our local garden center (but we have one very happy patio full of plants and flowers to show for it). 🙂

I hope everyone is having a wonderful week! 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:

  • the persistence of dandelions
  • taking advantage of walking weather
  • the tangerine flask of Baltimore orioles
  • lingering over coffee and buttered muffins
  • ten most beautiful words: chimes, dawn, golden, hush, lullaby, luminous, melody, mist, murmuring, tranquil 

Five smiles photo-roundup:

  1. Love your list – I love that dandelions keep coming, not so sure they should be counted as a weed! Your photos are lovely and delicious. I want eggs too!


    1. Thank you, Sue! I’m just now realizing I had two posts in a row that involved eggs. 😂 That was my first attempt (and success) at making poached eggs, so of course I had to take a photo! And I completely agree about dandelions. I love when they come around every year! Hope you have a lovely weekend! xo
