What lover of all-things-sweet doesn't dream about a good donut wall? This one definitely came through with the goods a couple of months ago - strawberry frosted is always a yes in my books.

I'm not going to lie, I just wanted an excuse to share these photographs because who doesn't love some good donut photography?

I did think, however, that seeing as I am obviously very happy about this donut wall from Replenish - I might as well add on 24 other things to be happy about and count this as my next instalment in the series. So here goes:

026. Donut walls...
027. Donuts in general
028. Church conferences
029. Pretty photographs
030. Thunderstroms
031. Electric blankets
032. Snapchat filters (the dancing ones get me EVERY time, hahah)
033. Hours of constant monopoly deal games
034. Strawberry frosted donuts
035. Jess and Gabriel youtube videos
036. A fresh pack of sticky notes
037. Office walls covered in pictures drawn by Powerzone kids
038. KINDER SURPRISES (the way to my heart)
039. Burger fuel tattoos
040. Being more excited about your friend's birthday than they are
041. Witnessing someone's first ever game of hostage
042. Chocolate glazed dounts
043. Group photos
044. Sunsets
045. Getting a letter in the mail

About a month or so ago, one of my old friends from high school approached me and asked me to do a guest post for an open letter series that she was doing on her blog. Obviously my answer was yes because who would pass up an opportunity to a part of a series as awesome as that?

I thought that when it came time to actually write the letter that I would be a little stuck on what to write but as soon as I put a pen to paper I couldn't stop. I ended up with a letter that is quite close to my heart. I left a piece of me in every word and I am quite proud of what the final product became.

To the girl who is struggling with friendships - this one's for you.

I recently purchased the book 14,000 Things to be Happy About by Barbara Ann Kipfer from a website called Thrift Books (10/10 recommend). I can honestly say that it is now hands down one of my all time favourite books. I've been sitting with a highlighter and pen in hand every time I've read it. It's basically a 612 page list of things to be happy about (surprise, surprise). You can tell a lot about a person by what makes them smile and I'd love to take a look at the things those in my world would highlight throughout this book should they have a copy.

I've loved it so much however, that I have decided to write a series inspired by this book. A series of the list that I would have written if this book had been mine. A series full of ideas I highlighted from the book but also that are completely my own. A series that I encourage all of you to have a go at - it might just make you smile.

001. The feeling of freshly washed socks
002. Mango ANYTHING
003. Funny nicknames that don't make any sense at all
004. Border Collies
005. The sound of rain crashing against your bedroom windows
006. Whispering
007. Whipped Cream
008. A good game of monopoly deal with your closest friends
009. Bouncy Castels
010. Church on a Sunday night
011. Catch ups with old friends
012. Pulpy Orange Juice
013. 3am car conversations
014. Puzzles
015. Receiving a letter in the mail
016. Denim skirts
017. Freshly painted nails
018. Friday night worship at youth
019. The smell of fresh strawberries
020. Friends who pray for you
021. The rush of nerves right before you get your ears pierced
022. Scrambled eggs
023. Watching the city lights flicker on at a lookout
024. The first slice of birthday cake
025. Silly string
