Little happy things

Just a few of those moments that are making me happy, right now.

Fresh bedsheets. 

That burst of scent as you slip beneath the covers.

Hearing from a dear friend.

A text, a call, a letter, an unexpected meeting.

The purr of a happy cat.

Never fails to make the world a little sweeter.

Cookies still warm from the oven.

Even better with ice cold milk for dunking!

Fresh pasta with homemade sauce.

My favourite thing about Italian food is the joy of simple, high-quality ingredients. The wonder that fresh veggies and sharp cheese and olive oil can create.


A cup of tea and a good book.

I’m so glad I’ve fallen back in love with reading. It was so odd not to be enjoying it.

Waking up early on the weekend and not needing to be anywhere soon.

Early Saturday morning coffee and collecting oneself is one of life’s great pleasures.

The smell after it rains.


Memories popping up on social that make you smile.

I know it’s corny, but I love it. I rarely need an excuse to send a picture that will make someone smile.

The peace of making a decision and feeling it’s the right one.

So grateful.


So those are just a handle of the little pleasures that always make me happy. Can you think of some others? I’m sure I’ve missed bundles. I hope your day is filled with little moments of joy.
