dose of joy {by reegan}

Meet the lovely Reegan! She’s sharing ten things that bring her a daily dose of joy.

Nail polish–The more the merrier
Hugs–I am convinced these are the best form of affection in the entire world
My best friend–Our relationship reminds me everyday that anything is possible with the right person by your side
Farmer’s Markets— Eating local + community support + tons of cute dogs= what’s not to love!?
Polish my Crown (and similar blogs)–reading the work of people who want to make others love their life!
Coffee–in conjunction with the company that goes along with it, I’m positive some of life’s best conversations are held over coffee
Public transportation–something that my city sadly lacks:(
Laughter— “A good laugh and a long sleep are the two best cures for anything.”- Irish proverb
Children–I am someone lucky enough to understand the power and beauty inside of them
The Office–every episode I watch suddenly becomes the funniest thing I have ever seen

Good Morning! coffee café
