    The thing that would have been like #3 on my list: chocolate. Chocolate makes me happy. Also? Besides the obvious (my husband, dog, family, etc.).

    Wine & craft beer
    Jimbo’s grocery store (it’s like Whole Foods, but locally owned and smaller)
    clean sheets
    cute boots
    My Shun knife

    Hey, this is fun!

  6. any song from my top 20 list that plays randomly anywhere- especially the less known ones.

    Crossing a finish line, maybe, that`s a bigger thing, but mixing chocolate and vanilla ice cream would be a close second!
    Love the list, thanks for sharing!
