here’s to happiness {by katie}

10 things that make katie terribly happy:

  1. my adorable new apartment in berlin… especially my tiny kitchen (lots and lots of cooking and baking!)
  2. the love of a wonderful man
  3. writing and receiving letters
  4. learning and speaking german every day
  5. the bright orange pumpkin sitting on my desk
  6. fall colours, smells, clothes.
  7. the cobblestones that line my little street
  8. finding love letters among the vintage postcards at the flea market
  9. chatting with my family and friends as if there’s not an ocean between us
  10. enjoying a nice cup of tea with my boyfriend on our sunny balcony
thanks for sharing, katie!

    I make a happiness list almost every night before I go to bed and it definitely helps keep grumpiness at bay!
