Laughter Lines

Bloganuary’s prompt for today had me thinking for a long time – “what makes me laugh?” It’s funny (ironically) how I know exactly what makes me happy and peaceful but not what makes me laugh. It took me some thinking to remember the last time I laughed till my insides hurt – it wasn’t that…

The weather yesterday was gorgeous and I walked around in the rain listening to ‘The Nights’ by Avicii and it was just the perfect evening.

#1| Happiness is| Sunrise & Sunset
