Looking at the other side of the coin

I am feeling like i have been caught up in the spiral of unhappiness and only I can really do anything to change it. So I have decided to take a good hard look at what it means to be happy and what I can do to make myself happier.

The simple thing is to look at the things that I am thankful for so here is a list:
  • My husband
  • My family
  • My beasts, no matter what they make me smile
  • The funny random e-mails that I get from my dad and my father in law
  • My friends
  • Wacky messages on FB
  • The ability to pay off bills each month and how I am starting to accumulate savings
  • My fireplace
  • Hot Chocolate
  • Shoes, make up and girly things
  • planning vacations
  • Julia Child and how she stated cooking in her 30s,
  • the down comforter that I get to curl up in each night
  • The upcoming holiday in NY
  • Pasta
  • White wine
  • sleeping in
  • the last of the fall leaves

What are you thankful for these days?

With the change in temperature, I have been moving towards red wine (specifically Pinot Noirs), but I hear ya on wine=happiness. And fires. I love fires.
