The Simple Things Tag

If there was anyone who I would call the Sun-Drenched Writer, it would definitely be my wonderful cousin Camille who loves sunflowers, plants, the color yellow, and just about anything bright or cheery. She also has created what is now I favorite tag ever. (And I get the bragging rights to be tagged first muhahaha)

The rules are fairly simple and the idea behind it is as well. (Hence the name, right? 😉 )

  1. Link back to the person who started the tag and thank them. Thank you Camille!
  2. Link back to the person who tagged you and thank them. Also thank you Camille. (:
  3. List 5 simple things that make you happy with pictures.
  4. Tag one person.

Here are some things that make me happy:

#1. Live music

Sister playing piano. Brother playing guitar. Family singing.

On the porch. Around the campfire.

Concerts.

Though music in general is absolutely amazing.

#2. Playing games

The competitiveness. The strategy.

Catan. Pandemic. Seven Wonders. Spoons. The Homeschool Game.

#3. Things that come with fall

Sweaters. Boots. Tea. Pumpkin pies and cakes. Oatmeal cookies. Camp fires. Falling leaves. Camp fires. Candles. Crisp air.

Need I say more?

#.4 Downtowns

The shops. Quaint. Small. Personable and cozy. Beautiful buildings. Hidden Arbors. Shutters. Window Shopping. Thrift stores. Nestled Bookstores. Walking with friends.

And Christmas lights and music in winter.

#5. Road trips

Music. Podcasts. Audiobooks. Games. Blurred landscapes. Headlights in the night. Big citites. Gas station stops. New things. Strange things. McDonalds lattes. Goofing off.

And now that I’ve started I could keep going.

The smell of rain after a hot afternoon. Playing frisbee in a thunderstorm. Color-coordinated bookshelves. Organized art supplies.

This is the kind of tag I feel like I could do again and again because there are so many small things that make me happy. (:

Speaking of which, I tag…

Dekreel!

But really if anyone wants to steal it, feel free to take it and spread a little sunshine. (:

What makes you happy?
