What makes you happy...

 “It’s a helluva start, being able to recognize what makes you happy.”

-Lucille Ball


Right on, Lucille.


I suppose half of the battle is recognizing what makes you happy- and the second part is going for it...following your heart. What makes me happy? As I get older (and the years are passing oh so quickly!) I realize that it’s the little things...the moments of small joys and less of those big life goals I made a check-list of when I was younger.

Today is a day filled with those small things- and amount to a greater contentment at the end of the day...at the end of everything. ⭐️ This morning I woke up with my daughter and we had a brief Lady Gaga dance party as we drank our lemon water together. (Yes! she asked for water and lemon 🍋 before her breakfast!). We then dressed in pink and made #strawberry #smoothies . I went to a bikram #yoga class with a friend, ran by the grocery store (grocery shopping is one of my greatest pleasures btw!😅), and in a while my babe and I are going to get into the kitchen for a few hours- make vegan latkes for our Hanukkah dinner in deux and possibly ANOTHER chocolate cake. We’ll light the menorah, eat our #plantbased latkes and maybe watch a movie. We’ll take baths (hers with lavender oil and rice starch- mine with Epsom salts and eucalyptus), we’ll read a story and when she goes to bed- I’ll put on some music, light a candle and write- maybe about life, maybe a new recipe or maybe something else. I’ll get to bed relatively early, kiss my baby, and hopefully wake up to another day full of happy moments and indulging in the things I enjoy the most. These are things I love. Some of them at least. And I am #grateful that today, and hopefully many other days, I get to do exactly what I love doing with the people I love doing them with💕

Happiness & gratitude.
