24 Things That Make Me Happy

So I'm a little late, but I figured in honor of me just turning 24 I would try and reflect on things that make me happy. Simple things, little things, but happy things. I all too often find myself getting wrapped up in what the next big, exciting thing that's going to happen in our lives that I often wish away the regular every day to day things. I'm working hard to be happy in the present moment. If you know me, even a little, you'll know patience is something I struggle with. So today I'm focusing on all the things that bring a smile to my face, no matter how little.
