happiness is...

last night i ended my night with some of my favorite women. the lovey had to study, so my sister-in-law and i headed over to spend some time with my cousin. we laughed a lot, did some gossiping, and then our conversation became interesting. we started to talk about being happy. that got me thinking... what makes happiness? what makes me happy? how often am i happy?

i spent the night thinking about this and most of my morning as well. here is what i came up with... i have a pretty incredible life! i have been with the same guy for almost 7 years now.  he understands me and my crazy moods/impulses. when i am down, he always brings me up again (even if he is down). he is the only person that can make me laugh till i pee/cry. he is definitely my other half. i don't know what i would be without him... ok enough of the gayness. you get the point! i married my best friend and i really do believe that he is the love of my life. we have only been married for a little over a year but i cannot remember EVER being this happy. sometimes (ok this might seem creepy) i look at him and i can't help but smile. 

 our life together is great. we are very lucky! despite everything that we have been through (not getting into graduate school, not passing the bar, having to move, getting pregnant) our lives continue to be full of love and happiness. and now we have even more to look forward to. with our little girl just 2 weeks away... i get the feeling that our lives will continue to be filled with love and happiness. i am feeling REALLY happy today! and i was happy yesterday and the day before that. i also know that i will be happy tomorrow. 

what makes you happy?
