Happiness is ______ {2014-W16} #happinessis


We spent 52 weeks in 2013 celebrating what made us happy, and it WAS a fantastic year. Let’s make 2014 the year where we really truly focus on surrounding ourselves with only joy and happiness all year round, every month, every week, every day.Tell me, what makes you happy? What is it that you do that you can’t get enough of? What makes your soul shine, your eyes beam, and your insides sparkle?

Happiness is so very many things for me, and every Wednesday I plan on sharing my answer here with you, on Twitter, Instagram and Facebook. You can join us and follow along by using the hashtag #happinessis on Twitter and Instagram.

How to Repurpose Easter Baskets

repurposing personalized easter baskets

Baskets in all shapes and sizes make me happy. To me, there is no better medium with which to organize than using baskets. They're so pretty, functional, versatile, and sturdy. Each year on Easter, we crack open the stored box of my children's baskets, dust them off, prettify them while packing them with goodies to give as gifts, only to store them away once more. It breaks my basket-lovin' heart so bid them goodbye year after year. This year, … Keep Reading
