These Are Six Unimportant Things That Make Me Happy
[By the way...isn't unimportant happiness an oxymoron?]

1. Books
I love to read and have devoured books for as long as I can remember. I usually feel guilty that I don't have much time to read but I make up for it during the summer. I've read 2 and a half books just today and have started on another!
(I just started reading "Plain Truth" by Jodi Picult and at page 61 am loving it so far!)

2. The Internet
The internet is my connection to the outside world and where I live most of my days. (Not that that's a bad thing!) I always seem to feel this strange feeling of loss when for one reason or another don't have access to the internet for a period of time.

3. Pants
As I am currently in the mindset of the Amish world (that's where the story in "Plain Truth" takes place) I realize that pants make me quite happy. I don't think I could handle wearing dresses and skirts all of the time.

4. Stars (and wishing on them)
I love stars. Staring at a black night sky that is completely lit up by shining stars - there's nothing more magical. I also love wishing on them and am thankful when I get to see the first star again and again each night with my ever changing wishes.

5. Crayola Crayons
How do they get such a beautiful and wonderfully huge rainbow of colors into such a tiny box? [My favorite since childhood has been "Jungle Green" the perfect color, but is hard to come by nowadays!]

6. The Smell of Summer
Campfires, BBQs, S'mores, Fresh lake and ocean air and the smell of driving through forests of huge redwood trees.

I'm going to leave this open to whomever feels like joining in! If you do, please leave a comments so I can be sure to come check it out and find out more about you!

The "Love Ya" Award states:
These blogs are exceedingly charming. These kind bloggers aim to find and be friends. They are not interested in self-aggrandizement. Our hope is that when the ribbons of these prizes are cut, even more
friendships are propagated. Please give more attention to these writers. Deliver this award to eight bloggers who must choose eight more and include this cleverly-written text into the body of their award.

I'm also going to break the rules of the award and keep the 8 spots open too! I love you all!

Lastly, I received this award from Jennifer a little while back and never said thanks, so..Thank You!
