    The look on someone's face when I cook something for them and they really like it
    Hugs from babies and grateful parents
    Moments when I realize that I'm living my dream (which aren't often enough b/w the bouts of complaining and bemoaning my workload)
    Slipping my feet into Uggs and feeling snuggly
