30 things to smile about...

Last week, I read a post by Vidya Sury - Did I smile today and I loved it. 

A simple list that made my day! :)

Just reading her list made me smile and realize how simple things in our lives have the ability to turn rough days into an absolute delight. It reminded me of how long it had been since I had made a similar list or even smiled looking at one.

I also noticed the blog hop from Janine's post on Friday Reflections.

So decided to write about it here even though the link is closed. 

Here are 30 things that make me smile : 

1. The scent of books
2. Dancing to perfection

3. When my parents and baby bro come to the airport to receive me with a bright smile and a bear hug.... Ok this one made me smile and miss them a lot :(

4. Being in a library all day

5. Waking up early after a good night's sleep

6. Waking up before baby girl so I can enjoy the "me" time :p

7. Blogging away without any apprehensions

    1. Yes Mithila :) Just as it shows how thoughtful the readers are to leave their feedback. Thank you !

  2. Beautiful - I especially love number 1, both new and old!

    1. Thanks Janine. And tell me about it ... At first when I heard or read others loving the scent of books I would just find it weird. Not until I saw what they meant and now I totally get their statement. :) Any book - old or new just invites me to indulge in its feel and smell. :)
