Posts Tagged ‘laughter’

Hello everyone! I am super excited to be hosting the first of quite a few contests/giveaways!

What makes you happy? Is it a warm cup of coffee, a puppy in the park, your kids laughter? This is the subject of today’s post. I think with the hustle and bustle of everyday life we forget to stop and appreciate everything around us.

I myself have 3 kids, 2 businesses and I volunteer at the school. My days are always jammed packed with car rides, sewing, digi, PTO and then every day life too like taking care of my home and nurturing my relationship. I can go days without even realizing how many days has passed.

The first Friday of every month I take a time out and meet my after school group of mommies for breakfast.  I sat around our table at Denny’s today looking at my group of girlfriends, all of us different ages, relationship status’ and amount of children or grand children and thought this…this right here makes me really happy.  We talked about everything from home life to school to town gossip, we laughed til we cried and we toasted our dear friend we lost a little over a month ago.We have forged these tight bonds between us that I do believe will be lasting relationships even as all the kids grow and our lives change.

In this world of online living, where most communication is shared with a click of a button it feels good to actually have some real human contact each month. I have so many things to be grateful for in my life, my family, my kids, my amazing husband whom without I could not survive day to day but this monthly tradition we have is just for me. Its two hours of guilt free time I get to spend on myself and my goodness we all need it don’t we?

 

So today I pose the question to you….What makes you happy?

Hello dear readers. I am so excited to be able to host an amazing blog series this month. Filled to the brim with wonderful and inspiring bloggers all covering the same topic

We will be discussing what makes us awesome as women, mothers, wives and friends and tackling one big issue…flaws.

Woman have this amazing capability to let the smallest flaw define who they are as an entire person and it is our goal this month to embrace these said flaws and learn to appreciate ourselves a bit more.

Join us all month long on this journey of self discovery and appreciation. There will be laughter and maybe even a few tears as we share our personal stories. There will also be some really fun stuff in store for all you reading along. Stop by tomorrow when we kick off the event with a GIVEAWAY!

 

xoxo
