TAG ✨ 50 Things That Make Me Happy (+ my hiatus)

Time for happy, positive thoughts! 😊

I was tagged by Virgina @ The Sassy Library Fox for this one! 😀 And because it’s always more fun for me to think about happy things, of course I had to do it!

HOWEVER… I’d also like to mention that I’m going on a short hiatus after this post. I actually had some ~cool new posts~ planned out for this week and next week, but I’ve recently gotten a bit overwhelmed with school and I need a little break! I should be back within the first few days of March! 

So without further ado, let’s talk about things that make me happy!

      1. Well, it means I never have school on it & that my family can come down. I guess the downside is not having another date to celebrate in the year, but I think it’s pretty awesome 😎
        Plus people’s reactions – I was once told ‘you’re like Jesus’ sister’ errrr…that’s not how that works 😂

    1. You’re welcome! (And don’t worry, it usually takes me about a month to do tags, and um… I think I have about 10 things I’m currently tagged for!) I hope you can visit one of the Wizarding World parks one day!


  2. Xandraaaa, thanks so much for tagging me! I really can’t wait to answer to this. I’ve been in a very negative mood lately, and sometimes I forget to look around and remind myself of all the things I have. Hopefully, this tag will put me in a more positive & full of gratitude mindset.
    I definitely share some of the items in your list, like rainy days, roadtrips & bookstores. I’ve only been to Barnes & Noble a couple times when I went to the US, and I remember being so overwhelmed (but in a good way) by the amount of amazing titles I could recognize there!
    Thanks again for tagging me! And I hope everything works out at school. Can’t wait to hear from you, hopefully soon! ✨

    1. You’re welcome, Lais! 💕 Making this list was a good way for me to stay positive, and I hope it does the same for you!

      And thanks for wishing me well at school! I will officially be back to posting regularly next week! 🙂 I can’t wait to see your list!

  3. I loved reading your list so much! If I listed all the things we had in common we’d be here all day, but one of my favorite things was rainy days. Not enough people appreciate them, but they’re my favorite! I may just have to do this tag on my blog.

  5. You know what made ME happy?? Reading all these things that make you happy! 😀 There are so many things on this list that would be on mine as well. Listening to young kids talk about the books they love, especially books that I ALSO love, is such a joyful thing! ❤ And your family's tradition of cooking during the Olympics sounds so cool!!


    1. Aww, thanks Margaret! 💕 I always love seeing kids read the books I loved in my childhood, because it makes me feel like those books could cause them to love reading! It’s just so cute.
      And my family loves to try new foods, so it was a great tradition we started several years ago! 😊
