You may recognize the title as the annual theme for the Peanuts calendar.

It may not be some thing you are experiencing at the moment, but share those things that make your day just a little brighter.

Happiness is...checking your bank account online and realizing you have more money than you first thought.

Unexpected money and gift cards appearing in the mail.

Making plans with one of my oldest friends for her to spend an extended weekend and her first ever vacation at my apartment.

Lotus, the new kitteh in the house running TO ME and putting her head in my hand to pet her.

Wonton being a patient big sister to the new addition.

Sequin the fish is still alive!

Spending all day with my bestie, catching up on everything and eating junk we wouldn't ordinarily eat, without guilt.

Joining a promising new writers group.

The body image documentary is now back on the table.

I've been asked to run a plus-size boutique in NYC. European style, American design. Thinking seriously about it.

So much and more!

rebelregan,
Happiness is ....

... pugs sleeping at my feet.

... 20oz white chocolate, brown sugar mocha with cinnamon on top

... a good book that keeps me up all night.

... Seattle rainy days, hearing the rain fall on the windows.

... learning who I am again.

... food; pizza, tacos, chips n' salsa, big salad.

... photography.

... my son.

Seeing your tween daughter and teen son just chill out, talk to each other, and actually enjoy hanging around each other.

The family dog asleep on top of you.

The quietness of a Saturday morning at my in laws in the country.

When your SO does something without any cues from you.

Getting all the people you consider family together to celebrate together.

Nice thread. Thank you for the reminder.

Best fish name ever!

Happiness is snuggling up in blankets, cat in lap, book in hand, and a cup of Earl Grey at hand (maybe with a little Irish Mist).

Finding new music that you want to play on repeat all day.

Reading a book that makes you laugh and nod in agreement at the same time.

Clear, starry nights.

Waking up a little too early so you can revel in the warm, comfiness of bed.

A fresh cooked meal. This encompasses a lot of separate little happinesses. Like the smell and taste of fresh cilantro.

Really affectionate kitties. Especially the really meow-y ones.

The smell of fires in the cold winter air. And the fresh smell after it rains (except when it smells really...wormy instead. Blech.)

Finding someone to play pool with!

Giving people random compliments and hoping it brightened their day a little.

Long, aimless walks.

LSD.

Finding amazing ribs at a cool joint - it's two guys and a smoker.

Beautiful sunny, warm-ish days after a long, cold winter.

Cuddling with the doggies

Sharing a nice bottle of wine

Since I moved an hour away - anytime I get to see my niece (who is a sister really) and spend time with her.

A warm gun.


Most Beatles albums are pretty happiness-inducing. Listening to Abbey Road as a whole delights me every time. A lot of variety to the songs, but it has a certain...cohesiveness to it. Which is a quality that may or may not be dissipating with the rising popularity of purchasing songs digitally.

Saturday morning + comfortable armchair + Cafe du Monde coffee with chicory + the Guardian crossword = happiness. (sigh)
