the happy tag

Hamlette kinda sorta tagged me with The Happy Tag and it looked like lots of fun, so here it is.  Basically, you have to share a bunch of things that make you happy, and since I dedicated an entire notebook to lists on that very topic, this was easy-peasy.  The only quibble I have with this (rather perfect) tag is that there are no categories for 1) People/Fictional Characters or 2) Tastes/Food.  Other than that, though, this is one of my favorite tags ever.

Books:

Any book by Lucy Maud Montgomery.
The Candymakers by Wendy Mass.
All the Winnie The Pooh stories.
While We’re Far Apart by Lynn Austin.
A Little Princess + The Secret Garden by Frances Hodgeson Burnett.
Gone With The Wind by Margaret Mitchell.
The Penderwicks series by Jeanne Birdsall.

Words:

Chaotic.
Jewel.
Sparkle.
Shimmering.
Eloquent.
Nefarious.
Serendipity.
Fluttering.
Ethereal.
Hero.

(As you can tell, I adore words.)

Movies/TV:

The Magnificent Seven (1960).
Combat! (1962-1967).
State Fair (1945).
Roman Holiday (1953).
The Indiana Jones movies.
Any Hitchcock film.
Meet The Robinsons (2007).
Little Women (1994).
Singin’ In The Rain (1952).
  
Scents:

Cookies baking.
Hot pavement after a summer shower.
Freshly mown grass.
Pizza.
Roses. (Any flowers, really.)
Grilled cheese sandwiches.
Old books.
New books.
Coffee in the morning.

Songs:

‘In The Mood’ (Glenn Miller).
‘American Patrol’ (Glenn Miller).
‘Go The Distance’ (Disney).
‘What Do You Do In The Infantry?’ (Glenn Miller).
‘The Way You Look Tonight’ (Frank Sinatra).
‘As Time Goes By’ (Vera Lynn).
‘You Make Me Feel So Young’ (Frank Sinatra).

 
Misc:

Christmas.
Movie soundtracks.

Organizing my bookshelves.
This video.
Autumn.
Dana Andrews.

Fangirling with friends.
Writing.
Chocolate chip cookies.
Family.
Everything, basically.

I tag…anyone and everyone!  Seriously, I want to know everyone’s answers because this is such a fun, joyful tag. ❤

  1. Such a fun list! Maybe I’ll do this on my blag. One question though, I don’t know how to make words be linked. I mean, your first sentence was linked to Hamlette’s blog, with out saying: this is the link. How do you do that?

    • The Great Escape is a fantastic movie and all that, but it’s too serious and depressing in places to truly make me happy. Mag7, on the other hand… 🙂

      Can’t wait to see your answers to this tag!
