Happiness is ______ {2014-W50} #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.

This week has been a busy one – I didn’t take too many pictures this week, unfortunately. It’s been an all out sprint to get paid work done this week for the rest of the year so I can enjoy time off with my children for the holiday. I am so looking forward to holiday baking and sipping tea and hot cocoa on the couch with my babies watching the lights twinkle. πŸ™‚

Speaking of my babies, we made holiday ornaments this week! I picked up this kit at Michaels (I think) last year, and uncovered it once we set up our tree last week. They are SO much fun (and easy)!
