now day 5



pictures of things that make you happy

So that I don't get overwhelmed wondering what to put up because many a thing make me happy, I'm going to go with 5 picture topics that make me happy. I feel like I pulled out some randoms for this.

Of course I have to pick this perfect little family of mine. I love them so much I could just cry! This first picture is from last year but I just love it!



The mountains. Oh they make me smile. Waterton is one of most favorite places to be. I loved living in Cardston and being that much closer to them and seeing Chief Mountain out my front window. My dream home would be right beside a lake in the mountains, I would wake up and smile every day. It is just so peaceful there, and I get that peaceful feeling when I look at pictures too.

Friends. I have so many good friends. I don't like to pick favorites among all the friends I am blessed to have, but these ladies and this picture make me smile. I am always the one laughing the hardest as previously discussed on the blog, but I'm quite sure Emily was finding something to pinch in this pic.



I don't usually enjoy pictures of myself while in action, but I just love this picture. I've put it on here before. It makes me happy, so so happy doing someing that keeps me hap hap happy.



This is the night Derek and I got engaged. It just makes me happy. I can remember that night so well over 8 years ago. You can just see the sheer happiness on both our faces, it's so real. Also, the shadows magnify the look of a mullet in Derek's hair, hehe, he didn't have one I swear. (but, he might have had them at one point and another and another...during the early marriage years and I cannot wait for his mid life crisis when he decides to grow it out again, i just love a curly mullet. I'm being serious. He hates me for making him grow it out all the time back when the young love had more control over him.)


I'm thinking of a million other pictures and ideas that I want to use that make me happy, but I just don't have it in me to carry on, and I did my 5. But can I say how much I am loving everyone doing this! Isn't it fun to talk about yourself?! And I am loving and appreciating everyones comments too, thank you thank you!

I love that photo of you! Super inspiring!! But also could be a bit jealous...because you know...I sort of waddle right now and it's sorta annoying. Just sayin'.

The mountains photos are fantastic! and your little fam makes me smile too! I'm especially loving your long golden locks. Your hair seems to grow at super speed... or has it just been that long since I saw you last?!

Pictures just make me happy. They're such a great window into a moment of time. If I were you, I'd REALLY like the running picture. I'd kill to have that body right now. Sigh, I guess I'll work on having this baby first...
