Being tagt: What makes my heart happy...

I have been tagt by Rebecca to reveal what makes my heart happy, well, thank you so much for asking and here it comes, in no specific order:

Having my family and all my children under my roof (which is very rare, since my two oldest sons live in Berlin,Germany), talking with them, seeing my children grow, spending time with my husband alone, reading, decorating, working on my design projects, playing piano, time with good friends, sitting at a beach, travelling, taking pictures, creating something beautiful, writing my blog, listening to classical music, working in my garden, thinking of my grandmother Susanne, walking in a lovely landscape far from cities, getting letters in the mail from my friends, coming home after a long absence, being back where I come from - Germany, feeling the strong connection to the past, living with traditions and making new ones...

The more I think about it, the longer that list grows, I feel lots and lots of things make my heart happy and it is so nice to list it here and this makes me feel so happy too!

Thank you Rebecca for making me think about it!

  1. Lovely! Family is what it comes down to for most of us :) Thanks for visiting my blog!

  2. Hi!

    Thanks for playing along. Except for the piano part my list of happiness is much like yours.

    I got my server back up to speed today - so could finally respond.

    Summer vacation ends with the start of school next Wednesday. If only Iowa winters went a quickly as the summers.

    Your trip sounds wonderful. It is an area I would love to visit.

  3. This is a lovely list and so nice that it is so long. It made me stop and think about how focusing on what makes one happy will or can actually invoke happiness...

    We make many lists throughout the day: to-do list, shopping list, guest list. But a happiness list is long lasting.
