A Happy List!

Wednesday, May 10, 2017

Guys, remember happy lists? I looked forward to sharing each one so much. So, let's bring them back! As a chronic list maker, writing down my thoughts always helps me process things better. And after a stint of not feeling like my best self, I'm in need of focusing on the positive. Here we go! 10 things that are making me smile as of late.

1. Costco dates. Dinner for two for $5!? Sign us up. We genuinely love the pizza (and I, the hot dogs)! Although, we did get a bit overwhelmed by the giant-ness of Costco last Friday, so we gladly gave my dad his membership card back. But maybe we should borrow it again. Just for date nights.
2. The Handmaid's Tale! Obsessed. And FaceTiming with our friend Kelli to discuss it after.
3. The love we were surrounded by at our housewarming party last weekend.
4. This candy store down the street.
5. The Chacos I bought last night for upcoming summer adventures.
6. This Twitter thread Brian showed me. Still laughing.
7. This. All of them. So funny.
8. Slowly, finally wrapping up the name change process, which was no joke. 29 years of living makes you have your name on a lot of things.
9. My freelance projects. What originally started as a 25 at 25 goal (another list to revive!) has led to a number of opportunities I'm so grateful for. I picked up a few new clients recently, and while they're keeping me busy (and away from things like this blog!), constantly working on new and different assignments, learning about new topics and working for myself is exhilarating.
10. This life. All of it. I throw the best pity party around, especially if I'm not feeling well, but I feel so lucky and so privileged. Except for last week's $$$$$$$$ hip X-ray. That I hate. A lot.

Check out more happy lists here and email your list to ladan.nikravan{at}gmail.com if you'd like to participate. Have a great Wednesday! xo


  1. Hi Ladan, love your blog! A couple quick questions for you because your photos are always so nicely edited! 1) What kind of SLR camera do you have? 2) What apps do you use to edit/filter your photos? Thank you!

    1. Aw, thanks so much! We have two Canon Rebels (XS and T2i) that we mostly use on vacations (and don't edit the photos at all, mayyyybeee a little in iPhoto here and there) and I use the VSCO app on my iPhone (how we're taking most pics these days). Brian has Adobe Lightroom but I've never used it/put those pics on here and I'm saving slowly for a nicer camera, but I need the skills, first ;) Appreciate your kind note xo

  2. Hello, I am Monalisa. After being in relationship with my husband for years, he broke up with me. I did everything within my reach to bring him back but all was in vain, I wanted him back so badly because of the love I had for him, I begged him with everything, I made promises but he refused. I explained my problem to my friend and she suggested that I should rather contact a spell caster that could help me cast a spell to bring him back , I had no choice than to try it. I messaged the spell caster, and he assured me there was no problem and that everything will be okay before three days. He cast the spell and surprisingly on the second day, my husband called me. I was so surprised, I answered the call all he said was that he was so sorry for everything that had happened He wanted me to return to him. He also said he loved me so much. I was so happy and went to him that was how we started living together happily again. The spell casters email is : [dredesspellcaster@gmail.com]. You can email him if you need his assistance in your relationship or any other Case.
