The Happiness Project :: A weekend getaway


We escaped to a cabin in the Blue Ridge mountains
with a group of old friends over the weekend.
All children were dropped off with grandparents
and it was a grown ups only weekend.
 

We made awesome meals...


and enjoyed relaxing by the fire out on the deck-so dreamy.


We played games in the downstairs game room.


It was a much needed mini-vacation.
The view wasn't bad, either.

Beauty all Around Me

The other evening I walked into my bedroom 
to put away clean laundry 
 and the light was so beautiful on my curtains 
that I had to stop everything and capture it with my camera. 

I haven't taken photos for fun
in a while cause life has been so busy.

It felt good to use my creative eye.
So I started looking around my home
for more beauty to capture.

I found it hiding all around me.

The Happiness Project :: Chaperoning Camp

I chaperoned Griffin's class 
on a 3 day camping trip last week.
It was beautiful and just so
fun to watch them explore nature.

Here are some pics 
from the trip!
 



It makes me so happy to be able
to enjoy these moments with Griffin
and his school buddies.

I went to the most wonderful wedding
over the weekend for a dear friend.
It was so much fun to help her get ready
and celebrate her big day.


 Congratulations Dr. and Mrs. Rowan!
I couldn't be happier for you two love birds!

The Happiness Project :: Star Wars



 The boys were out of school for Spring Break last week
and we didn't make plans to go anywhere.

We decided to make it a Star Wars week.
 Neither of them had ever seen the films.
We started with A New Hope
and watched all of them
over a course of a few days.


It was so fun to watch them enjoy the movie
just as I had when I was a child.
I was a HUGE Princess Leia fan
when I was a little girl.


They were so cute and had to stop
to have epic light saber battles
in the middle of the movie.

They've been playing Star Wars ever since.

I love sharing my childhood with them.

The Happiness Project :: The Hammock


I spent a good amount of time
relaxing in the hammock in the backyard over the weekend.
It's just about the happiest place for me to be.

The moment that I sprawl out
I am instantly relaxed.
