  16. The energy at concerts
  17. Dancing with my mom
  18. Dancing with my friends
  19. Dancing in general

  21. When an artist I love releases a new album
  22. When a writer I love releases new content

  28. Engagement and baby announcements, or just really good news in general.
  29. Trips—to the city, to Florida, to basically anywhere…but the ground.
  30. Really good hair days, because let’s be real: with hair like mine, they are far and few.
  31. When I’m surprised, because I’ve only ever successfully been surprised once ever and it made me react harder than I would have ever expected.
  32. When the sky is beyond words, like when the moon is full and stars are visible, or the sunset is perfect, or when I get to watch lightning bolts dance during thunderstorms.
  33. When I’m just surrounded by the people I love and I get that feeling of home.
