What makes me happy? Being with my husband and our two "children" (ages 33 and 26) :) Knowing that the kids are happy, educated, and "employed" is a marvelous feeling! Weekend after next we are all going to Seattle together for a family celebration, I can't wait!!

What makes me happy? My 4 grandkids
What makes me smile? Watching their faces when they get "sweets" at grandma's house. (not allowed at home)
What do I love? Family time.

There are so many things I love in my life. My family, my babies, making fun of Adam, the sound of rain, my mom's rice pudding, the I Love Lucy show, Disneyland, blue mason jars, old photos of me and my Dad, big glossy cook books, coffee filter DIY projects, people that hold the door open for you even when your 20 steps behind, old Pez dispensers, antique chairs, big purses, socks with those little gripers on the bottom, my grandpa's emails, Christmas morning, turkey sandwiches,
...... andddddddd pretty cake stands. 

There are so many little things in my life that make me smile and these are just a couple of them. I want to know what makes you guys smile now! I started Lilyshop because I wanted a space to share everything I loved. As the site has grown I have gotten to know some of you, whether it be through customer service emails, facebook messages, or just comments, I have learned so much. Please tell me something about you and enter to win our Just Because Contest. What makes you happy? What makes you smile? What do you love? Just give me a sentence, or a couple if you want!

Contest Rules:

1. LIKE the Lilyshop Facebook page and comment below this blog post with a sentence or two.
What makes you happy? What makes you smile? What do you love? ~ Give us an answer to one of these questions .... or all three if you're feeling extra chatty : ) Don't forget to leave your name and email!

So, pretty much anything that stylish, colorful and aesthetically pleasing makes me happy. Oh, and winning stuff... I love the cakestands! Especially how you color-coordinated the treats on top. I've started collecting these so that I can have multiple treats on the table of my 50s style wedding (whenever he gets around to asking). I think the pink one is divine.

What makes me happy? A good book, a cup of tea, and a cozy couch with a afgan draped over the back on a rainy day.

Listening to my 3yo daughter playing make believe games, oblivious to what is going on around her and happy in her own skin. Watching my 9yo son with ASD bouncing on his trampoline, all his worries and anxieties forgotten in that blissful moment of movement. Spending time with my friends and family who love me for me without expectation or exception. All these things make me happy, make me smile, and most of all, remind me to love.

What makes me happy? What makes me smile? What do I love? The little things... Laughing with friends, my flowers growing in my garden, good deals on fabric, being crafty, when my beautiful nieces and nephews call me Auntie and give me hugs and their sweet little baby kisses, my little dog, Dash, my FAMILY, the ocean, a sunny day with a cool breeze... I could go on and on. Good to know lots of things make me happy, thanks :)

What I love, makes me smile and makes me happy... - That random moment where a warm feeling inside fills you up and you are just so happy, for maybe no reason at all. - Taking a moment to dance by myself at home, with feel-good music. - Organizing things. - Friends and family. - Sometimes even cleaning. - Desserts.

With all the stress and sadness in this world and at times in my life. Goin into my Kindergarten classroom makes me the happiest! Your not able to think about those things when I walk through the door becasue I have 30 amazing children that deserve all my attention and they tell me thing like... "Your so Pretty" even on a day whn I have no makeup and am feeling NOT so pretty becasue of all the stress outside of my class! The children don't see me that way and I love spending my days with them, that's what makes me the happiest!
