Happiness is an ever-discussed, elusive-to-some concept. Last week, I was in a bit of a funk and tried to embark on some soul searching. It brought up a whole host of repressed issues which we'll touch on later. But for now, here's a wee list of happy things, as promised! Snowy days and seeing birds play… Continue reading A List of the Little Things in Life #1
