What makes YOU happy?

Hippo in the Olifants River, Kruger National Park, South Africa

The simple things in life make me happy..

- Just being with my hubby - holding his hand, playing with his hair...

- Watching and photographing game in Africa

- Painting (canvas, not walls!)
- Spending time with township kids in SA (at their school/home/church)
- Being with my family (we are spread across USA, UK and SA)
- Lying on my back and looking up at the stars in rural areas - there are so many more up there in the countryside

- Listening to the rain, and the smell after a good electric thunderstorm

What makes YOU happy?


  1. Just simply being at home with hubby and son is enough to make me happy. If possible, no need to get back to work ever, just laze around the house with no financial worry would be the best!

  2. Hehe Wenny I can well understand - I love just being at home with hubby too... I enjoy my work so would continue that, but it would be nice to be able to volunteer and not work to make a living... :)

  3. It's so refreshing to know that other people appreciate the simple things too. I enjoy cooking and baking for my friends and family and sitting under the stars wrapped up in a blanket with my boyfriend drinking hot chocolate. And I would be great to not have financial worry so that I can do more of the things that make me happy. God Bless.
