14,000 Things To Be Happy About

14,000 things to be happy about by Barbra Ann Kipfer
from Amazon
"This book represents 40 years of recording all the little things that make me happy. Beginning in the sixth grade with a tiny spiritual notebook."

I absolutely love this tiny book, it's full of wisdom and is the perfect source of cure for those days where you aren't feeling your all. Through every page I found myself reminiscing through old related memories that I perhaps would have forgot about had I not been reminded. I only have every respect for Barbra Ann Kipfer that she was able to share it with us, a book I will be taking through life with me.

Some of my favourites 
"Remembering when leaves were raked and jumped into, not put into plastic bags or giant vacuums."
"The gap in the dressing room curtain that can never be completely closed."
"The act of entering a room and forgetting why."
"Snow in March."
"Two seats together at a crowded movie."
"Toasted marshmallows."
"A romantic walk through the neighborhood to look at Christmas decorations."
"The times when you feel you're the only two people in the world."
"Adam's apple."
"Frost before November 23 auguring bad weather."
"Escaping from civilizations."
"Making lists."
"Romantic declarations written in the sand."
