What are 5 everyday things that bring you happiness?

They say it’s the small things in life that bring you happiness, right? I’m not sure who “they” is, but I believe them. And sometimes these very small things feel very large. I’m not sure I can narrow my list down to just five, but I will give it a shot. These are the five things that bring me happiness today.

A cup of coffee with a homemade donut (or two)
Baking. Fortunately, this is not an “everyday” type of thing. But every once in a while I have to bake. It could be donuts, it could be pretzels or cookies.
Comfort food. I didn’t make this particular meal, but this meal brought me and my stomach a lot of joy.
And who doesn’t get joy from a beautiful sunrise? You can’t get more “everyday” than this. Whether I see it from my bedroom window, on a beach, or over a mountain, seeing the sun rise in the morning can set the tone for the day.

And getting creative with the tools at hand, like my phone.
