…Happiness Is…

My friend bought me these little books by Charles M. Schultz and it’s called “Happiness is a warm puppy” and “happiness is a sad song” and they’re so adorable! I read them every time I feel down. But I just thought it would be neat to do it myself. To just kind of remind myself of what makes me happy day to day. You guys should do it too! I’ll be adding things to the list every day so keep your eyes peeled (newest ones are at the to)
