my sweet, new, blog-friend alana tagged me in a happiness post so today i am going to write on ten things that make me happy! 

i am going to have a hard time just writing ten things that make me happy. i am so blessed and everything i have i am thankful for, so i am going to try to think of some fun things people may not already know. 

1. my prayer journal. i love to look through my journal to truly read and see what God has done in my life. it's so encouraging. how blessed am i that my Savior hears my calls. 
2. africa. my heart has been won over by this country and my heart is happy. i love to read and dream of the opportunities i am going to have when i am over there and i can't wait to experience what God wants to teach me. 
3. sunshine. i truly think i have SAD(seasonal affective disorder). there is nothing greater than waking up to see the beautiful sun. i love being outside and am so pumped for spring and summer. 

4. success. i love, love, love to see people or things succeed. whether it's a new business or someone trying to do something, i adore the true smiles people have when they succeed. i enjoy helping people figure out what they want in life and trying to help them take steps to achieve these things. 
5. music. i love love music. i love to listen to it. i love to worship to it. i love to sing to it. i love to dance to it. does that sum up why music makes me happy :)
6. streams of the desert. i don't know if i could get through life without this book. if you don't have it, get it. :) this book is like a breath of fresh-air and encouragement. if you need some encouraging words, think about this book. 

7. God's love story. i am amazed and reminded daily of the greatest love story of all time. the bible is the best book ever-written and i am in it. i can't get over the faithfulness and promises that are packed in the bible. thank you LORD. 
8. clothes. i love to shop. i enjoy putting outfits together and buying new things! this might be bad, but i don't think there is anything wrong with treating yourself with something every now and then! my favorite thing to do is shop on a budget. i love trying to see how many things i can get with a certain amount of money. maybe someday i won't have such a tight budget! 
9. home. being at home just puts a smile on my face. i enjoy going places and "getting-out" but i love the days when i can come home and just relax in the comfort of my own home. if you looked up "homebody" in the dictionary(if that even is a word) i am pretty sure you would find my picture. 
10. "smell good." i love perfume, lotion, hair product, anything that smells good. i can't stand something smelling foul, so i am always spraying or rubbing something on. if you ask any of my friends, i am always asking "do i stink?" 

thanks so much alana, for tagging me in this post! it's fun to think of new things i am happy for! this week has been so great. i have been able to relax and it has been great. i got to walk on the trail today and it was so refreshing. tomorrow i get to spend some time with my sweet friend alyssa. we are going to take day-trip to st. louis! i hope we find some "good stuff." i will try to take some pictures of our little adventure to share! have a blessed day! 
"and being found in human form, he humbled himself by becoming obedient to the point of death, even death on a cross." philippians 2:8
