{Happiness} Happiness is...

It's Friday, and who doesn't like Fridays!? The end of a working week, the start of a weekend... Whether you're planning drinks down the pub, going on a big night out, attending a friend's wedding, a day out with the kids, or simply relaxing at home, it is always exciting! Happy times.

When I was in high school, we would often find things to do in class to keep us busy [yes, this is the despite the fact that we were in class, and therefore meant to be focussing on what the teacher was telling us... but let's just skip that part!]. One of the things that kept us busy for a long time, was making a list of all the things we liked and that made us happy. It could be anything from the smell of freshly mown grass, to dancing with friends, travelling to a specific place, ... you get the idea. And making such a list would genuinely make us feel happier. A few years later, my friends and I at university started making a similar list. I will have a look to see if I can find these, as they always make interesting reading.

In the meantime, I have listed below some of the things that make me happy. I hope to make this a regular feature, and please feel free to add your own "happy thoughts" in the comments below.

I love living in Bristol, always so much to do and see! It's a beautiful city and I can't help but take photos of it when it looks its best. This photo was taken yesterday as there was a beautiful sunset over the lush view of the city.

My brother, sister and I are very close. I don't know where I'd be without them. We have so many great memories together, and always have a great time when we get together. Looking at photos of us makes me really happy!
As the true daughter of a Frenchman, I love food. Love it. I believe in eating everything in moderation and love cooking and baking at home.
As you may have come to realise by now, I love green... therefore love forests! In fact, the wallpaper in our bedroom is of a forest, so I wake up every morning opposite a green forest, and that makes me very happy.
There's nothing like being on top of a mountain, with a clear blue sky and the warm sun, on fresh crisp snow. I was lucky to grow up in the French Alps, so could go skiing and snowboarding on a weekly basis. I really miss it but luckily B has grown to love it too so we're looking forward to skiing trips once the bambini are a little older.
What makes you happy?
