Good, Random, Fun ~ Week 24

the GOOD
In 2016 I'm attempting to do #52weeksofstorytelling with a different theme each week.
Week 23/52 - Happiness

If someone were to ask me "What's making you happy these days?", I'd answer with the following (this list is not complete)....backyard ducks, a good stack of books to read, daily walks and runs, flowers from my garden, being momma to my 2 girls, bees and blooms, Oregon's beauty, music in my house and friends to work out with.

It's the little things around me. Things I might not notice or even take for granted if I wasn't intentional. I think we need to start asking each other "What's making you happy?" So consider yourself asked and feel free to tell me in the comments!

more GOOD

waterfall, morning coffee, new perspectives
