  1. Lovely post! For me, the smell of freshly ground coffee in the morning. We just bought a hand grinder for our coffee, and grinding the coffee by hand really wakes me up :)

    ps. 'Mr Grumpy' makes me giggle every time I read it!

  2. Great post, I love your list!
    There are so many things it is hard to choose just one, but I do love it when my kids are getting along and you get a glimpse of what their relationship might be like when they are grown, it gives me a good feeling!
    Have a great day~! Julie:)

  3. That's a lovely list of things you have there Sarah and I would include most of them in my list. Topping the list for me is peace of mind. If I have that then I can deal with pretty much anything else. The addition to the list is having the time and means to craft be it crochet, sewing or oil painting. Creating is food for my soul.
    Have a great week,

  4. oh sarah b. i liked that post sooo much. for me i automatically think art & music, but it's really so much more than simply that. <3

  5. I adore your blog! Thanks for the mascara info on mine.
    You have such lovely taste and I loved your list and agree with them all. Except I struggle with crochet and never seem to find the time.
    But I read in the bath most nights. It's the only real "me" time I get. It's precious.
    Love your crochet hearts, so pretty!

  6. Yes yes yes! Although am more than terrified of horses and would FREAK OUT at being as close to their gnashers as you are with your TC. Although I do think they are very beautiful creatures. Just as scary as elephants, to me, though.

    Cupcakes, baking, flowers, crochet... all the little things brighten up your day don't they and it's nice to take a moment to appreciate our special loved ones sometimes, even if they ARE grumpy. :-)

    Lovely post. Did you post up a pic of the Country Living apple cake? Looks amazing, I fancy that I do.

  7. What a great list Sarah. :)

    So many things for me, it's hard to only choose a few, but like you a happy healthy family is a top priority, then simple things like a beautiful sunset, a sunny day, giving someone a surprise gift ... I could go on and on, lol!
