Happiness is ______ {2014-W49} #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.

I finally started feeling better, so we decided to finally put up our tree. The baby was VERY into it, and has done a great job not destroying this year. (Yay for not having to wrap the tree in a baby gate!) She was a huge help in hanging the ornaments.
