As the new year quickly approaches, I pause and reflect on this past year. It has been one filled with love, laughter, travel, challenges, heartache, new beginnings, and everlasting memories. It has also been one filled with many firsts as my daughter completed her first year of life: first smiles, first diaper blowouts, first time sleeping through the night, first laughs, first steps, and first words. So, as I reflect on Kate’s many firsts it made me think about the simple things that comprise her world and make her happy. And, as we live in a world that continues to move at a record pace, it is a good reminder that it is the simple things in life that sometimes matter the most.

Maybe this list of Kate’s favorite things that make her the happiest at this moment in her life will help to remind you of this:

  • Saying please, thank you, and bless you
  • Bananas
  • Opening and closing lids
  • Her daddy
  • Waving hello at herself in the mirror
  • Ring around the Rosie
  • Climbing
  • Reading
  • Butterfly kisses

What are some of the simple things in your life that make you the happiest?
