17 things that make me smile

Finding a surprise under your table,
running around sunflower fields with Matty,
food shopping
going food shopping for mozzarella sticks, snacks, and little brothers,
We finally took out our Christmas tree
Matty's fun signs,
I love this laugh
people that laugh so hard they need to hold onto their stomachs for dear life,
There is some guy skiing down my block!
looking out your window and seeing someone ski down the middle of the street,
This dog thinks he's a baby
big dogs that think they're still babies,
rainbow chucks,
Matty read me a bedtime story on video chat
being apart and reading bedtime stories on web cam,
Our neighbor had a duck named Mamasita
my neighbor's pet duck,
girls that wear a mustache so well they almost convince me it's real,
Cannonball!
cannonballs into bed,
spotting an endangered bald eagle,
painting
painting in panties,
old roommates,
spying stairs,
Kitty yoga?
and your responses on twitter to what move Moo is doing. Apparently he is doing jazz paw bend and stretch triple axel praying buddha on a lotus pad figure skating death spiral yoga. Amazing!

Moo reminds me so much of a cat I had in college called Tahoe. I hope he's just as funny! (From the photos, it seems like he probably is.)

The photo of the guy laughing makes me happy. I love laughing photos!

Audrey Jaye said...

Someone skied down the street right outside my window too!! Two people actually. Couldn't get a good picture cause there were too many trees in the way.

How awesome though. I'm assuming that was last week Wednesday for the massive snow fall? So much fun..

Fabulous post. It seems like you must live an enchanted life, but I'm betting it's only enchanting because you choose to see it and make it that way.

I stumbled upon your blog earlier today via a photo on Tumblr, and i am officially hooked :)

I've gone back and back looking at all the colourful creations you've made and all your posts just make me smile.

I love your attitude of remaining as a kid and having fun, even at 17 now, loads of people say i need to be more serious, so it's lovely to see someone else to be like this :)

Keep up the good work, i'll be a regular on here now! I'm sure it'll always bring a smile to me face if i'm ever having a bad day :)

kiwimeg said...

Beautiful post! Definitely made me smile :)

OneCraftyFox said...

I have a kitty who thinks she is a little person. If she wants something badly enough (like a freshly cooked piece of bacon) she will s-t-r-e-e-e-t-c-h way up on her hind legs and suddenly a little white paw will appear on the top edge of my table and feel around... I'm. totally. serious. It's like something you'd see in a cartoon.

I stumbled upon your blog a few days ago and I am hooked. You are incredibly creative!

colormekatie said...

haha that is too cute!!

inspiredpointsofview said...
