We've talked about all kinds of joy-themed topics this week, but sometimes, joy doesn't have to be deep and philosophical. Sometimes joy can exist in your favorite chewing gum, a nostalgic song on the radio or a Murder She Wrote marathon on Lifetime, (guilty as charged).
Here are a few of the favorite fun and frivolous things that make life a little more worth living:
1. Coca-Cola Classic
Forget that diet mess, give me the hard stuff. This delicious bevie makes me want to give the inventor a big 'ol hug. And if you can put it on a bed of crushed ice in my favorite Razorback Tervis Tumbler? Oh man, now we're talking.
I think a lot of my love for this fizzy drink comes from nostalgia. My dad and I would sometimes split a can of Coke when he would get home from work. He taught me how to pour it, hold the glass close to my face and let the fizz bounce off and tickle my nose. Then we would collectively go, "ahhhhh" and smack our lips : )
2. My daughter's bath products
There's nothing better than the smell of a freshly bathed baby, specifically my own ; ) We use Noodle & Boo shampoo , as well as Aden + Anais Mum & Bub bath wash and lotion each night before bed. Every time I smell these products, they reminds me of Caroline.
3. Chick-Fil-A sweet tea
I also like to refer to this stuff as the drink of the southern deities.
4. Billie Holiday Pandora station
No one mellows me out quite like Billie.
5. Lucky Charms
I rarely buy them because I'll eat the whole box in one sitting. I'm not a huge fan of sweets, but I could eat mounds of this cereal.
Those are a few of mine, but please tell me what little things give your life an added boost of joy!
