happiness is a pair of comfy socks.

My friend Jennifer gave me the book "The Happiness Project" for Christmas.  Seemingly unrelated, she also got me 2 pairs of North Country socks (her personal favourites).

And then this morning I put them on, and it all made sense.  You see, happiness is a pair of comfy socks.

I think we make attaining happiness too damn hard.  All it takes is stopping for a moment and soaking it up.  Happiness is all around you.  Cameron complaining that "Max is touching her", Max giggling as he pokes Cameron over and over again until she screams "MAX NO THANK YOU!! STOP TOUCHING ME!".   Watching Louis CK's latest movie (for free!) on my mac in bed, taking pictures of my feet. the way the clouds covered this morning's sky as if they had been rolled out on parchment paper.

But mostly it's a pair of comfy socks.

    You found it!

  2. I'm so glad you liked the socks. I always want socks for Christmas but David thinks they're an impersonal gift and won't get them for me. But good socks? Everyone needs/loves good socks!
