9 Things That Bring Me Joy

List the top 9 things that bring you joy.

1. Reading – I can’t live without reading. What I’m reading now:

2. Writing – this includes making lists.

3. Taking photos of and writing about interesting places and things.

4. Eating a really good dinner that I didn’t cook – I don’t like cooking. I love going out to eat.

5. Having a totally clean home – this is a big accomplishment for me, because it’s such a rare occurrence. It’s a miracle!
6. Visiting a nice place we haven’t been to before. It doesn’t have to be fancy; it just has to be different.

7. Summer – especially in a really beautiful place like Cape May, New Jersey. I love warm weather and the beautiful Jersey shore.

View from the very top of the Cape May Lighthouse, taken by me this past summer:

Yes, I climbed all 199 steps!

8. Shopping – this is bad. I especially like antique shops and Home Goods.

9. Being with my husband. Even while shopping in Home Goods and he whines “Are we done yet?”, I still love him.
