Five things to be happy about {five things friday link-up #11}

Hotter-than-hot adventure filled day trips – followed by scenic drives at sundown, finding the most perfect southern biscuit recipe (and savoring a little taste of home) and holding on to these too-short summer days while attempting to wear out our rapidly expiring pool pass in the process. Another week gone by as August insists on coming to an end…

Wishing everyone a beautiful week 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 rules and info.

Five things to be happy about:

  • 50 percent off anything
  • Toll House cookie batter
  • being well-fed, well-exercised, well-read, well-rested and well-paid
  • knowing phone numbers by heart
  • successfully moving all your clothes from the washer to the dryer without dropping anything

  1. So wonderful! I totally missed the boat this go-around. I feel like I am drowning with my day job and family obligations, hopefully this feeling passes soon. Though, all the more to look around for things that make me smile, like your gorgeous photography :)!
