Maybe because it’s such a late spring, I seem to be even more enthralled with the appearance of leaves than usual.
I mean, it happens every year, right?
But this year, I just can’t stop looking at this changing season: the gradual filling out of trees, the green grass replacing golden fields, and the occasional tulip and daffodil at the base of a house.
This infusion of colour makes me happy.
Waking up is better with coffee.
I set my alarm each morning, early, so I can get up ahead of everyone and have my quiet cup. Taking that first sip starts my day on a happy note.
I savour it so long, I usually have to reheat it in the microwave several times before it’s gone!
My favourite coffee in my favourite mug = many happy morning moments!
(Mug by Branches Pottery – thanks, Sarah!)
A respite from the bugs, a room for conversation, a place for an after-supper cup of tea.
This is my screen house.
We have enjoyed many moments in it. But a spontaneous cuddle with our children at sundown tops them.
The evening breeze, the stars above, and the people I love the most in all the world.
This is happiness.
