The Happiness Report #15 – Smile Like Michael Phelps

My husband and I have been chatting about Michael Phelps and some of his interviews at the beginning of the Olympics. I don’t know if you saw what we saw, but at the start he seemed completely checked out… like he wasn’t excited to be there. As the week went on and he started winning […]

Happiness Report #13 – Affirmation, Music & More

It’s time for another happiness report. I’m going to be honest here… I haven’t had a completely happy time of things lately. I guess I’ve never had a close family member die before, other than a grandparent, and I am surprised at how hard the grief from losing my brother is hitting me. My heart […]

The Happiness Report #12 – Iced Coffee, Flowers and Moleskine

I learned something today. When you think you aren’t happy… when you are in a funk… and you sit down and decide to write down recent things that have made you happy words seem to take over and you can’t stop writing. Little did you know, there is so much around you making you happy! […]

The Happiness Report #11 – My Brother Larry

Wow – what a week! Last weekend, my husband and I took our kids to Iowa to spend the week with Grandma and Grandpa. When we arrived home, I collapsed into bed only to be jarred awake a few minutes later by the phone ringing. It was one of my sisters and she told me […]

The Happiness Report #10

I hinted to this some earlier in the week, but… My brother has cancer. We found out this week that he has Stage 4 cancer in the form of an inoperable mass pressing against his esophagus. In addition, we were told this evening that his spine is deteriorating, which most likely means the cancer has […]

The Happiness Report #9 – Cozi, Cocktails & Instagram

Happy Summertime, everyone! You know the warmer weather makes me especially happy after the harsh winter we’ve had. I thought I’d share a little dose of what’s been making me happy lately. Every summer, I choose a cocktail that is going to be my summer drink. I’m not a big drinker, but in the summer […]

The Happiness Report #8 – Pinch Me, Plates & Decluttering

It’s been a few weeks since I’ve posted a happiness report over here. It’s not that I haven’t had things to be happy about…it’s just that I have been so busy with regular life lately to actually sit down and share some things with you all. First off, last week a friend of mine and […]

The Happiness Report #7

Hi friends! I know it has been quiet around here the last 2 weeks. For those of you who don’t know, my beloved camera is in the shop, which to me has been like losing an appendage. I take my camera with me everywhere. I’m lucky to have some good friends who have jumped in […]

The Happiness Report #6

It seems kind of wrong to be posting about happiness today. The tragedy and devastation going on in Japan is so sad. I’ve found it hard to tear myself away from the news and worrying about those people still searching for their loved ones. I can’t even fathom what they are going through, and I […]
