50 things that make me happy.

I believe during this awful time – look at what’s happening around the world – it’s important to find comfort in small things to keep positive, here are 50 little things that make me happy. Coming up with this list was surprisingly harder than I thought it would. I guess that’s rather sad and sort of a red flag, wouldn’t you agree?

P.s. That’s a very happy Simona in the photo above from a few summers ago.

  1. Grocery shopping and cooking nice meals.
