8 Things Every Happy Woman Should Have

I saw this adorable post on Natasha's blog and thought I would play along. I changed it up a bit instead of answering Cupcakes & Cashmere's 8 Thing Every Happy Woman Should Have - I made up my own!
 
1. A Dog
 
Come on - you all knew that would be #1. And I honestly believe it. Dogs have an amazing ability to know exactly what you need. As if you needed even more reasons.
 
 
2. Access to water
It can be a beach, lake, river or pond. I feel so much more happy when I am near a body of water. It's the Pisces in me.
 
3. Family
 
I am so blessed by my five nephews. They are all such incredible little boys and I am so excited to watch them grow and have a close bond with them.
 
4. Girlfriends
A girl is not complete without her entourage and mine is pretty amazing. And for all those people who say "I am more of a guy's girl" well you're missing out on some amazing relationships - so go make some girlfriends! 
 
5. Alone time
 
I love spending time with my husband and girlfriends. However it's always nice to find something you enjoy doing alone. Here are six more good reasons.
 
6. The ability to laugh
Life is way too short to take it so seriously. There is no better way to spend the dash between your years than by making memories.
 
7. A passion
 
Now this is one of those things I didn't quite grasp until later on in life. Yet I am on my way and I thank my little rescue for showing me...
 
 
 8.  A Smile
Less wrinkles and you just look better with one on your face!

  8. I didn't realize you were a Pisces, March 7th right here! That also explains your deep passion for animals, which is my passion as well. Zack and I were talking at dinner last night about how much money we want to start donating to charity every year out of our income and when he asked which one I wanted to give to I instantly said, "Animal Welfare Institute"! Zack was like, yea I don't even know why I asked...haha. Love love love this list, I feel like you're my zodiac soul sister now!

  9. Great post!! I too agree every girl should have a dog. And a rescue at that! I also agree about access to water. I take living by the beach for granted but I couldn't imagine living somewhere where I couldn't hop in my car and be able to see the ocean in minutes. It's calming, relaxing and gorgeous!!

  11. What a great post lady!! Agree completely with all of these :)) I wish I was closer to the water - it's amazing how relaxed and calm I feel when I'm walking on the beach, even if I was in an awful mood or totally stressed before. Is your nephew pictured second from the left on your husbands side of the family? He looks like him!

  24. Love them all but "alone time" and "dogs" are my favorites. Spending time alone is highly underrated. And when you do spend time alone, make sure your four-legged buddy is right there with you!
