Sunday Stills Challenge – Happiness

For this week’s Sunday Stills Challenge, Ed wants to know “What makes you happy?” If he knew me as well as most of you know me, he’d know that was a loaded question…..most things make me happy!!! So, this one was fun to put together…..you might actually go so far as to say that it made me happy to do this post!!! 🙂

I spent the day with a friend, today. I decided to document the day with photos with the express purpose of using them to show what made me happy today…..they are also things that make me happy in general, as well!

Let’s see…..this one represents so many things that make me happy:

flip flops,

being on the water,

traveling,

adventures,

gorgeous sunny days

…..etc…..

This was taken on a cruise – docked in Nassau, Bahamas

My family!!!

…mostly because I get shots like this when I’m trying to get a serious 4-generation Christmas photo!!! 🙂

Full disclosure — the next two photos were NOT taken by me (obviously, because I’m in them), but it is a post about what makes me happy and they WERE taken with my camera……so, I’m including them!

So, that is a taste of what makes me happy…..there is so much more because life, in general, makes me happy…..life is good!!!
