These things are lovely. They make me happy.

  4. Rolling over to the warm part of the bed left by C when he gets up to go to work and sleeping some more.
  5. The smell of pool wafting out the back of the aquatic centre on my way to class from the bus.
  6. Sitting with a cup of something warm and reading a favourite magazine (esp. domino).

  8. Budding magnolia flowers in the spring.
  9. Artigiano‘s grande latte and lemon ricotta muffin.
