Five things to be happy about {five things friday: link-up #22}

“But frost, like the crystallized dreams of autumn, began to coat the clearing with its sugar glaze.”

― Victoria Steele Logue, Redemption

Things are starting to feel extra wintry over here! With frosty cold mornings, the smell of wood burning fireplaces at night and the softest blanket of snow covering the mountain tops. Is it just me or did Autumn seem way too short? Still, I’m looking forward to finding out what this PNW winter is all about!

Wishing everyone a very happy Five Things Friday! xo

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:

  • redwood forests and Spanish moss
  • steam rising from a cluster of casseroles
  • going to sleep with a line through every item on the to-do list
  • mulling spices of stick cinnamon, dried sweet orange peel, cracked nutmegs, and whole cloves
  • a salmon-colored sunset

  1. Every item crossed off your to do list – what a dream! Love the look of that frothy drink. It looks massive but I think it’s just the angle of the camera. Nice work!
