50 Things That Make Me Happy

50 Things That Make Me Happy

You know those days when you feel down, and you just can’t seem to think of one thing that makes you happy? I’ve recently had a few of those. The gloomy, dark weather is upon us here in Northern England and if you add in some home-sickness, missing my boyfriend, family and dog, it can be a terrible combination. I wanted to jot down a few things that make me smile, for when those winter blues start taking their toll…

44. Goats cheese in my salad

43. Planning for my next trip/adventure
