50 reasons to be happy

How much do we need to be happy? Lots of money? An expensive car? Or rather simple everyday things? Although I haven’t had any time recently to write about anything the idea of writing this appealed to me so much that I forced myself to sit and write this post. I was inspired by a post of Dominika from Kierunek Kuba i reszta Świata (in Polish 😉 and wrote down my reasons to be happy. I only put 38 reasons (which might mean I don’t need that much to be happy). Sometime I will surely complete this list to 50. In the meantime I would like to invite Claire from Maman solo de deux tortillas to participate and write your reasons for happiness.
