August’s Happy List

Hello! And welcome to August’s Happy List.

This is a new feature for Find the Good Everyday. Every now and again I’ll share an updated list of what’s making me happy! They may not be monthly – I might make them seasonal but it’s great to get started today.

My 100 things that make me happy list continues to be one of the most popular posts on this site – I love that people are seeking inspiration and I encourage you to create your own Happy List. You can start small and current like this month’s list and if you’re looking to create a big list check out this post for some ideas and advice.

Just think – if you write down 5 things every month for a year you’ll end up with a list of 60 happy things!

August’s Happy List


My Son turned 10 this month and we got to celebrate his first decade on earth! I shared 10 insights from 10 years of parenting earlier this month. He had a low key birthday but really enjoyed it.


Big Little Lies (TV Show) – I don’t watch heaps of TV but I’ve been meaning to watch this for ages. I binged both series across 5 days and really enjoyed it. It’s an amazing cast including Nicole Kidman and Meryl Streep. I loved the soundtrack and found lots of great songs to add to my playlists.


We got fish! My uncle gave us a fish tank and lots of supplies so we headed to the pet shop to buy some fish. We got 3 little minnows. One hasn’t survived unfortunately but the other 2 are so fun to watch zipping around the tank!


Walking in the woods. I’ve been walking in the woods a fair bit recently. First because it was cooler during the hot days for walking the doggo. And it’s also a great place to go when it’s raining because we get a bit less wet!


We got a Dishwasher! This was on my 38 @ 38 List so it’s good to get it ticked off. We had to reorganise the kitchen to remove a cupboard to get it plumbed in so it wasn’t a straightforward job but such a worthwhile one. Now to figure out how it works!


Tell me – what’s making you happy right now? I’d love to know.

I’ll be back soon with another Happy List! In the meantime don’t forget to check out these posts:

I also share things making me HAPPY each Monday over on Instagram!
