Ten everyday things that make me happy

Allie and Mel's recent posts left me reflecting on the little things that truly make me happy.  Here are some of them in no particular order:)
  1. The last cuddle in bed with DH before we have to start our day.
  2. The warm feeling of sunshine on my skin.
  3. Wet and sticky kisses from my grandchildren.
  4. Hugs from my sons.
  5. My first cup of coffee in the morning.
  6. Long, leisurely baths in the winter.
  7. Finding a warmed towel (thanks to DH) when I get out of the shower.
  8. The smell of vanilla or lavender.
  9. The taste and smell of freshly baked bread.
  10. The laughter of children.
What are the things that truly make you happy?
