Five things that make me happy

  1. Being a mom. The first 1½ years were hard - much harder than I had imagined - but the older she gets, the more fun it gets. 
  2. Being creative. It almost doesn't matter what I do; drawing, painting, knitting, embroidery, writing, just as long as I can make stuff up.
  3. Being alone. I am an introvert, so my batteries are charged when I am on my own. 
  4. Listening to music. Nothing can transform my mood quicker and easier than some good music. 
  5. Buying new shoes. Yes, I'm a shoeoholic! But I'd rather buy one expensive, good quality pair of shoes, than several cheaper pairs.
