I was sorting through some papers and found a list I wrote awhile back (like a year ago). It is 100 Things That Make Me Happy. It was an exercise in a book I was reading at the time. I remember having a hard time coming up with anything. Then I found my happy place- I would be most happy at a resort hotel, wearing beautiful sandals,lying in a hammock of down-filled pillows in a garden of white roses and rosemary, holding a marquerita in one perfectly French manicured hand and a large hunk of peanut butter fudge in the other listening to my husband's laugh while gazing at the sea shore as a cool breeze blows through pine trees nearby. Anyone know where this might be?

Oooooh, we like some of the same things! I'm still trying to figure out, though how "clothes that fit" go with my love for iced sugar cookies, Snickers bars, peppermint ice cream... :-) So glad you stopped by for a visit. Thanks for commenting, but so sorry you sold your cornucopia! Maybe an after-Thanksgiving sale??? Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours!

Thanks for visiting my blog...I am glad to have found yours, too. I love that you made this list, it is a great visual reminder of all of your "happiness". I love that you have "completed projects" on there. Very few things bring such satisfaction!
