I received many lovely birthday notes and calls yesterday. Thank you so much; I appreciate the well wishes and kind words. In addition, thank you for reading this blog. Writing, taking photos, and sharing my creative work brings an incredible amount of happiness into my everyday life.

And speaking of happiness, below is a short list of tiny pleasures that made me feel happy and grateful over the last few days.

Happiness is a birthday dinner with my mother-in-law and Logan.

Happiness is receiving lots of birthday wishes in my inbox.

Happiness is a 14-mile bike ride into town.

Happiness is taking photos of beautiful pink flowers.

Happiness is a new hair cut.

Happiness is noticing the golden fall leaves.

Happiness is blackberry pie for breakfast.

Happiness is new slippers to keep my feet warm.

Happiness is saying thank you.

Micro-action: Expressing gratitude to friends, family, and co-workers is one way to bring happiness and joy into your life. Take 15 minutes out of your day and send a note of gratitude and thanks to someone in your life.
