Things that make me happy #1

Today I decided that I’m going to occasionally add a post about things that make me happy!  So, here it goes…

I know it’s early, but over the weekend, I planted herbs in my window planter box.  I’m hopeful that lavender, thyme, and oregano can withstand any future cold snaps that we still may have over the next few weeks.  It does make me happy to get my fingers digging in the dirt again!

As I was watering my herbs this morning, I glanced up and saw a gorgeous view that also made me happy.  The sky was blue and the leaves are finally emerging on our Japanese Maple tree.  I don’t think the photo that I took did the view justice.

As the flowers and trees awaken from their winter slumber, their newness can be truly beautiful and overwhelmingly enjoyable!
