So couple days ago Inda of Inbert Streetstyle and Fika of the Sweet Escape had tagged me to make a list of 6 things that make me happy. It's hard for me to pick the 6 things, because when it comes about happiness, i think it is not about what are the things that could make you happy or unhappy, but more of what you decide - how you perceived things to be potentially make you happy or not. We choose to be happy, we make our happiness, even sometimes it seems like happiness just come in sudden to put us on very surprising grateful moment... Still I can't pick my forever 6. So, instead of that (for the sake of my... lack of efforts, maybe?), here i'll show you my least 6 things that make me happy today (because they'll always changing by times) :
1. My Morning Coffee
Today I started my life by sitting in the empty living room of my fronthouse, still in my ugly pajamas, holding a cup of hot, bitter instant coffee in my hands (I always use both hands to support glass or cups - esp. if it's hot, and I don't know why), the wind of dawn blew its cold wintry air all over my face... Light Cappucinno for Wednesday. It was about 4 a.m. and 15 minutes that time and there's no one else has awaken yet, only me - and my little dog who need to pee. Clock is ticking loudly and I slowly gulped down the warm, fluid caffeine. It's been several days since the last time I drink any coffee for the sake of what my mother said as the amenities of civilized living as a woman. She hates my coffee-habits as she thought its too man-like, not good for my skin, culturally inappropriate (she's a bit conservative... or she's just worried). She's always suggesting tea or milk in return. Well both are fine but coffee is however my addictive, irreplaceable daily needs. I love my light morning coffee today, and I'm happy.
2. Quiet Sceneries
I always love the sense of quiet, remote places with fresh air and beautiful scenery. Sometimes in the middle of hectic, stressful days I'll make a quick runaway to the nearest open-air environment, just to give me back my sanity. Anyplace will be such great escape as long it belongs to the nature - narrow trails, riverside, sunny fields, prairies, old houses in a savana, or else. The best thing about them is that I can be my own self, truly me, without need to worried about anything - it's not like a snail or grasses will complaining my behaviour or so.
3. Thinking of The Wild, Endangered Animals
Like in the other loose-y scheduled days, I browsed through National Geographic Photo Archives. They're always providing more photos of the articles published on the magazines, so I track down there to satisfy my curiousity. Animals folder is my routine destination besides nature & landscape, and I found they had several new photos of wild animals. Here's several of my favorites - wolf and fox, they're so gorgeous. I love animals - you might know I have two dogs at home, but these animals above are different. They're not pet, they have 'endangered' population on earth, they live on the wild, I never meet any of them, probably not gonna meet nearly, but I love them. They're so natural, so far off, beautiful.... and free. Perfect.
4. (Captured) Sun Flares Over My Face
I love the sun flares - and I got so excited everytime I see them captured on photos or drawed in pictures and so on. It's like witnessing the presence of sun, its real presence - I mean, we all know and see that the sun is up there above in the sky, faraway, and impossible to reach - but how about its flares? Sun flares are close. They're just like the extension of the sun' massive power, transmitted through such thin-transparent-invisible air. Just like the tree and their vines, creeper roots or branches. Flares is the proof, evidence that the sun is exist, and shining down evenly for gently caress one's skins... Feels good. And I think the sun is really greeting me today - mr. photographer got me captured underneath my beloved sun flares (!).
(and my all-time photographer)
Everyone in the blogging community
You are all beautiful and sweet, for accepting me with all my deficiencies. I don't know what to say for you -you're just too kind. Thank you for being the important reason for me to stay 'alive', by my blog or in the real life. It's always nice and amazing to feel (and accept) such big supports and love, and to realize how we - together - build some sort of 'another' world filled with delight and happiness, a place we can run into anytime we need to released ourselves from pain or hurts. Can't stop being thankful, can't stop loving all of you... Thank you - again. It's not enough, but it's sincerely come out from my modest inner voice speaking.

My bestfriend, Asta Hrund Gudmundsdottir is married on July 25th this year - yes, just a while ago - with his first love, Reynir Johannesson. I can't be any happier - If I can tell you a couple I know who almost never fight because of their faithfull love and strong commitment, they will be the first to be mentioned. Asta and Reynir both are such loving, mature, honest person I've ever known in my life. See their beautiful pictures and try to feel their feelings - so honest and graceful. And don't you think Asta looks so gorgeous there? Not only because she already and always is, but also because she has true beauty by heart. Congratulations again, Elsku Asta, my little saeta kartafla min! :)
