7 Things That Make Me Smile

Banana Pancakes and a really good children’s book,

bikes with stripes,

spontaneous dinner parties with friends, especially when spicy thai red curry dishes are served on happy plates,

walking barefoot in the grass,

super happy flowers that look like they’re about to sing,

my nephew being mesmerized by sand dropping from his hands,

drinking peppermint tea outside in the sunshine with my hubby.
