100 Things That Make Me Happy

This was another idea stolen from katie at Runs for Cookies. I'm so glad I did it. I've been pretty stressed out and upset lately with how certain things are going in my life.

  1. I have so many thoughts to comment on this post! I will choose one for now - #50 made me laugh so hard out loud, I had to explain to Mr. Gosling what was happening. I hope to witness this happen one day.
