Happiness is ______ {2014-W45} #happinessis

by Lisa Douglas

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.

Today feels more like a Monday than it does a Wednesday. My husband had four glorious days off, and we didn’t do anything particularly special but spend tons of time together. I even unplugged from the internet and phone for most of Friday and Saturday. My body aches a little from the lack of movement (when I say we did very little, I mean, we barely left the couch), but it was amazing to have my babies surrounding me in the house and nothing important tracking on the calendar. This was a “stayhomecation” to us, and it was pretty blissful.

We hated moving her, since she was sleeping so contently next to her, but we couldn’t risk her falling. But still, the sweetness – gah!
