Link Love: Things that make me happy

It is freezing, gray, and foggy here. The fog has blanketed the valley for close to a week now and is making things pretty dreary. I’m trying hard to find beauty in it, but it’s getting a little old.

Anyway, I’ve rounded up a few things that make me happy with just one little click. What do you think?

I love Fleet Foxes and I love First Aid Kit. Combining the two? Yes, please. These girls are amazing.

I’m glad I came across The Charmed Life Challenge again. It is full of fun ways to bring joy into your life and others’.

Sending you warm, sunny, happy thoughts. Leave your favorite pick-me-ups (online or off) in the comments! I’d love to add to my list.
