Happiness is ______ {Week Fifty-One & Fifty-Two} #happinessis


2013 WAS a fantastic year – a year where we collectively focus on the happy and the joy in our lives. 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 on Wednesdays I plan on sharing the answer to that. Every week, here, on Twitter, on Instagram and Facebook. You can follow along by using the hashtag #happinessis on Twitter and Instagram.

2014 is here! It doesn’t feel much different than 2013 just yet. This time off with my family has been a good one, chock full of lots of fun games, experiences, and the HOLIDAYS! This happiness is post is going to be an extra long one, to celebrate the last two weeks. I plan to outline some of the best 2013 happiness is moments in another post later :)
