Happiness is...

Lately I've been finding less and less solid blocks of time (and energy) to be able to sit down in front of the computer to blog.

Even finding time to check and respond to emails and Facebook updates has been a challenge Though have to say that I'm getting more and more adept at typing on the teeny tiny little keypad on my phone (without resorting to throwing it against the wall whenever the autocorrect function tries to get too clever and presumptuous with me).

However I still wanted a place to journal all the special moments going on in my life. So I recently started a little project to try and snap photos of everyday moments of happiness.

I can't say this is a comprehensive photo journal of every single happy moment I encounter every day. Sometimes I simply forget to get out the camera. Sometimes I'm just so into the moment that I can't stop to snap a photo. Sometimes the moment is just too fleeting to be able to capture it.

But whenever I can, I try to snap a photo here and there, so I'll always have the evidence to remind myself that life is indeed Full of Happiness. It's a simple but sometimes very much needed reminder, especially when it can get difficult to look on the bright side of life.

Here are a few highlights from my project so far

Happiness is...
... The feeling of cool fresh grass on bare feet
... Receiving a bead bracelet made by my little boy especially for me
... Watching my boy slide down the big slide at the playground all by himself
... A water gun fight on a hot summer afternoon
... Listening to a live music performance by my  boys

That is happiness to me.

And so Nathan’s very first day of kindergarten is over. It was a mixture of good, bad, sweet and sour. I think that so much happens throughout the day, it can be challenging for a little person to filter through it all.

These days my days are packed full to the brim. From the moment I wake up to the sound of Grace calling through the baby monitor and Nathan’s cheeky face peering at me over the edge of the bed… to the evening when I finally tuck them into bed and say goodnight.
