Who doesn't love a fresh, sharpened set of colored pencils, just waiting to be used on a new sheet of paper? Since I was a kid, this has been one of my favorite things :) Just a blank canvas of possibility waiting to be played with! Or how about seeing the kids picking up something to read, completely unprompted? That definitely brings a smile to my face every time. Guaranteed. Other happy things are Iain's jokes (and sense of humor which completely matches mine), the cats purring, and putting on my favorite jammies.
