      Waking up and remembering that the night before I had ridded myself of all guilt, and I am lovey and at peace……and then my sister comes in, puts pegs on my sheet, and clomps out like a rhinoceros. Yep. I know. And then the cat jumps – on my head. But I wouldn’t have it ANY other way.
      Oh, and babies.

That’s what I think photographers like me or you the other photographers need to work for. The perfect wave or in our case pictures and moments. :)

  91. Mira K. says:

    One of my happiest, most content moment, was listening to “Raincoat Song” by the Decemberists while it rained outside. I was reading a Sarah Dessen novel and was breathing in the scent of my favorite Yankee Candle (Cherry Lemonade). It was a lovely day. Everything about it was perfect. Just thinking about it puts a smile on my face.

    What makes me happy is that i am still breathing and that I am still alive. After all the horrible things i’ve been through, after the depression, the self harming and the attempted suicide , I can still find a reason to smile and to be happy. I have had great adventures in my life and I have had so many great new people enter my life since that dark time and thats what makes me truly happy.

Not to mention Nutella, my favorite-st chocolate spread. :)

  114. Ali M. says:

    What makes ME happy? My family, when they’re not fighting. My baseball (GO SOX). But what really makes me happy is being outside everyday and seeing how my lord and lady have made the world for all of us to enjoy in our own ways, be it playing or reading or cloud-watching. That’s what makes me happy.

  115. Bridget says:

    A really good night’s sleep makes me happy, not in any uber-hyper way, but just in this relaxed-I-am-ready-for-the-day-to-start kind of way. It’s the sort of night where you can feel how long you’ve slept (and it’s not just like you blinked and the night disappeared) and you’re were very comfy and warm and also had no stress about the upcoming day. It helps when it’s raining for some reason; that just causes this coziness.

  116. Alex says:

    What makes me happy is spending time with my best friend because he always makes me happy, is always there when I need him, constantly makes me laugh, and is just the best person ever. Being around him makes me forget the past, and makes the future look so bright(:

  118. Era B. says:

    Happiness in my life comes from so many factors, most of them very simple. It’s when someone i love makes me laugh or when a friend sends me a funny text. Or happiness can find me when i’m walking down the street and i see how everything is covered in snow and everything looks clam and beautiful. Happiness comes from small things that make me feel happy to be living.

  119. What makes me happy is waking up and taking that first big breath and knowing that no matter how good or bad everything that happens is everyone makes mistakes, your just learning new things. It’s better to live your life then to be afraid of it :) knowing that makes me happy, that and chocolate.

  120. Kirsten P says:

    Cooking makes me happy, especially cooking for others.

    Pushing off the wall for backstroke, hitting a couple flutter kicks underwater and looking up through the water as I glide back: this makes me happy and serene.

  165. Cindi says:

    My friends and family make me very happy!

    Happiness is:

    1) a square of dark chocolate melting ever so teasingly upon my tongue (followed up with a no-holds-barred pig out session on the rest of the bar)

    2) a pile of contented kitties snoozing in my lap (so far, all four of mine can fit with no elbow room to spare)

    3) a desk covered with rainbow-tinted art supplies and a pile of paper aching to be transformed

    4) gazing at the mountain landscape outside of my window and feeling so thankful that I can drink in Mother Nature whenever I desire

    5) hearty belly laughs, preferably while viewing left of center Brit-coms

    6) feeling a-okay inside and out :)

  171. Emma Demopoulos says:

    Happiness for me is found in the little things like the smell of the first spring breeze after winter, running barefoot through grass, a first kiss, the smell of a brand new book, a shared sunrise, and the perfect two seconds of silence before the words I love you are spoken. The moments themselves are small but mean everything in the end.

  172. Marissa says:

    Long walks in the early morning, my sisters when they smile at the little things, picture-perfect beach moments with my friends.

  173. Winnie says:

    Just looking anything nature lifts my spirits. It brings me back to how even humans need time away from everyone and ourselves.

    Meteor showers make me happy! One of my best friends and I bonded over our mutual love for astronomy my freshman year; we went out at midnight to see the Geminids that year! We’ve been really good friends ever since! :)
    (I guess there’s nothing like bonding over a night on a bridge, freezing your bum off as you watch the stars fall!)

  188. Reagen says:

    What makes me happy is truthfully just spending time with my friends- taking goofy pictures to put on Facebook, playing MW3 with guys who don’t believe us, and pillowfights acting like we are three. Those are my favorite moments and nothing could top them. :P

    What makes me happy is my amazing and adorable boyfriend, who will send me a text on a Sunday morning saying, “Roadtrip?”, then takes me up to Sleeping Bear Dunes so we can see (and take pictures of) the beautiful sunset.

  195. Rachel says:

    To me happiness is the scars on my knees, the leftover food in my fridge, the song the birds sing, soda pop that fizzles on my tongue, the rainbow sprinkles on cupcakes, the battered packages that sometimes come in the mail, the dampness of my hair after a shower, my grandmother’s music box, the bubblegum I sometimes stick under desks, my hands and all the things I can make with them, sleepless nights, solving math problems, and the way the boy i love looks when he’s painting.

  202. Morgan says:

    The thing that makes me happy is seeing my friends and family being happy. I know that sounds really cheesy and lame but its 100 percent honest. I strive to make other people feel better and happy about themselves. I know what its like to be going through a hard time and i don’t like seeing anyone i know being sad so when i see them being happy. it truly makes me happy inside.

  203. Rachel L. says:

    Well other than this contest ( ; } ) my school is really making me happy right now. I attend a performing arts school, and we just got accepted by Disney World to perform there this April!! I’m extremely happy about that, and I’m happy about all the donations we’ve been getting from the wonderful people in our small community who are trying to help us pay our way to Disney.

    What makes me happy…?
    A lot of things make me happy, such as watching movies with my boyfriend on rainy days or playing soccer for my school. But what really makes me happy is taking pictures of everything else that makes me happy, saving those memories to forever look back on. photographyy = my life :)

  214. Kelsey says:

    Laying out on the beach at sunset, letting the sun dance over your body, and breathing in the fresh air. Digging your toes in the hot white sand, and listening to the screams of little children, and the faint barking of a dog. Letting you hair down, and having the wind blowing it all around. Just, enjoying your surrounding, savoring it, because this is something you can’t take for granted. :)

  215. Renae says:

    What makes me happy is: Music, singing or listening to it . Watching a great movie . Drawing . Riding my horse in the hot summer sun . Hanging out with my family and friends .Listening to people tell funny stories and jokes . Sitting down and reading a book . Playing tag . Cooking something that I know is going to taste great . Looking at great pictures that will put a smile on your face anytime . And most of all just enjoying life one day at a time ! That is what makes me happy .

  216. Amanda says:

    Taking photos makes me happy. By the snap of a camera, how something seemingly ordinary can turn out beautiful. I think that’s what being an artist is, finding the beauty where others don’t. And since I’ve gotten into photography I see the potential of beauty everywhere. Which is why I always try to take my camera with me. It’s not very fancy, in fact, it’s rather mediocre but I comfort myself with the great quote ‘it’s not the camera, it’s the photographer.’ That being said, it would be really nice to win this camera. (:
