Book of Awesome

I'm a big fan of the blog 1000 Awesome Things, so naturally, I went out and bought the book written by the creator of the site. It is definitely awesome! It really makes you stop and think about the simple, little things throughout your day that make you happy. It's also fun to think about how universally appealing certain things are, like popping bubble wrap or being granted an unexpected snow day. I bought the book right before heading to the airport yesterday and three separate people commented on it just from peering at the cover! I encourage you to check out the blog and if you like that, check out the book too!

On a somewhat related side note, I also purchased a set of five colored bobby pins at J. Crew earlier in the day and the rainbow colors reminded me of the word awesome on the cover of the book. I know. Ridiculous. I swear I didn't coordinate the purchases intentionally.

What are some awesome things that make you happy?
