Happy Go Lucky!

Thalia of LifeInAthens tagged me last week to name the 10 things that make me happy! Instead of describing photos of what makes me happy I decided to post these photos! I started taking photos of what was above me, years ago and it wasn't till recently that I realised that I did this in almost every place that I went! Now that I see them all gathered together in one post I smile...so these photos are going to be the first thing in my 10-things-that-make-you-smile-list !!!

No 2 Happiness: Trips

I absolutely love traveling! The past three years I traveled like crazy and I think that this need of mine will never go away (well maybe it will when I visit each and every corner of the world)! Traveling makes me smile like crazy! From the moment I book the tickets and the hostel, I start dreaming about my destination!

No3 Happiness: Spending time with the people I most love.
I am an only child and for me my friends are my family! That's why I get happy with things that maybe others would think that are silly! Things like going for a long walk with a friend or even the simplest thing that exists: Waking up and seeing someone beside me!

No4 Happiness: Reading a book or a magazine
I suspect that you have already realised that! I am the happiest person alive when a friend brings me a book as a gift, when it's Thursday and on my way to work I find LiFO or Athens Voice and when my boss brings to the office Vogue UK or AnOther magazine!

No5 Happiness: The silly things that matter
such as...the smell of the coffee, the neighbour who plays the piano every Sunday, a graffiti, the first ice-cream of summer, bicycles in Athens, Swing Lessons and the list goes on forever!

No6 Happiness: Summer
I'm a Summer person! I hate winter, I hate rain and I count the days for the summer holidays! I love the fact that the darkness falls after nine o'clock and the feeling of the midday naps!

No7 Happiness:Drawing, Painting, Creating things with my own hand
I always remember myself with paints and color pencils in hand! Unfortunately the last years I don't design as much as I used to, but I found a new way of handling my creativity! Sewing! I love creating new things and I find it amazing to be able to wear my own things!

No8: Starbucks
Call me an idiot but Starbucks makes me happy! I love Tazo Chai Tea Latte and I think that I can't live without it! When I did Erasmus in Milano, the two only things that I missed from my weekly routine were LiFo and Starbucks! LiFo thank god existed online but Starbucks no! That's why the first thing I did when I went to Barcelona and Paris was to visit a Starbucks straight away!

No9 Happiness: Movies
I love going to the cinema! I'm happy just to be there
! The smell of the pop corn and the fact that a bunch of people are all gathered up to watch the same thing makes me smile! What I love the most about Greece are the open-cinemas during summer that play old classic movies! Last summer I saw movies with Marylin Monroe and Audrey Hepburn with the open night sky above me! Perfection!

And No10: You
Yes you! This blog will be One Year Old in a couple of days and I smile each and every day that I open my page and read all your lovely comments!

I tag Jo and Christiana as the next ones to do this list!
