    Happiness is spending the day with my family.

    Happiness is playing with dogs.

    Happiness is a guinea pig popcorning. (if you've ever seen it, you know what I am talking about!!)

    Happiness is fresh homemade tortillas with butter and sugar.

    Happiness is my pug puppy snuggling as close as possible to me.

    Happiness is lying out on a quiet beach with a good book.

    Happiness is finding out how many people really care about you in times of need.

    Happiness is DH hugging me close.
    Happiness is DD still wanting to sit on my lap - at 20!
    Happiness is my little doggie being able again to jump up on my lap and cuddle - I love when she comes to me and asks to come cuddle!
    Happiness is also a sunny day in my rainy neck of the woods! 60 degrees today and drizzle. Wearing a turtleneck sweater! But that also has its own kind of happiness.

    Probably strange for a man to say but I love turtleneck sweaters. I also love your state of Alaska. Much of Alaska is wild and untamed........ I can relate well to that.......:p

    Over the years I travelled to Alaska at least once a month......... Loved every trip!!!!!!!

    playing games with my nieces, nephew, brother, sister, son, family friends

    eating dinner all together and laughing about silly things that happened during the day

    sitting out on the porch at night listening to the inight sounds, looking at the stars, and hearing an owl hoot

    being out in nature--either the ocean or a storm or on the lake or camping among the pines.

    good food and good friends
