100 Happy Days: Day 7

Happiness is waking up to snuggles from your cute husband...especially when he holds on so tight you just have to linger for just 5 minutes longer...
This picture looks odd, I know, but it's the side view of B1's upper right arm and shoulder as he snuggled closer and therefore prevented me from getting up on time this morning.


I am really digging this happy days picture thing.  If nothing else, it's making me more mindful of how happy my life is!  Everyday there's at least a little reminder of what rocks in my life.  Isn't it wonderful?  I sure hope that you have as many small blessings as I do to remind you to smile.

100 Happy Days: Day 6; Book Club

The boat, all ready for my book club buddies to arrive.

About a month ago I was talking with a neighbor about books and thought it would be fun to organize a book club for the winter months, while we're all sheltered away in our little bubbles.  There are many, many gatherings during the winter but all of them revolve around drinking, and so there are lots of people who don't regularly attend.  Like my neighbors with children, for instance.  So my other reason for organizing this club is to get to know more people in my community in a different way.

About 10 people showed interest and 6 people took a shot at reading the book.  3 people (plus me) attended the first club meeting last night on our boat.  It was great fun, and very interesting to hear everyone's take on the same book.  I laughed at myself because while I organized the club and am considered to be it's "leader" I've never actually participated in a book club before, let alone run one!  Regardless, I am considering this first meeting a success, and am looking forward to meeting with everyone again next month to discuss a new book.

The premise of the book we read is reliving your life over and over, making small changes until you get it right.  Fate, know, that sort of thing.  We talked about the one thing that we thought happened in our lives that got us to where we are at this very moment in time.  My moment was the time I went out to lunch with my girlfriend and decided to go to happy hour that night...but only if I found a pair of jeans to wear at Kohls.  I did find the jeans, and we did go to the happy hour.  And that night, I met my B1.

No jeans, no happy hour, no B1.  Pretty amazing huh?

100 Happy Days: Day 6

On day 6, I got to wake up the people I love the most:

My nephew Dommie Doo, by kissing his chubby cheeks and legs.  (OK, and biting them a little too.)

My niece Rye Bread, by giving her raspberries on her neck, and by bouncing on the bed.

My husband B1, by kissing his all over his scruffy face. Yes, he's in there. :)

100 Happy Days: Day 5

100 Happy Days: Day 4

I'm finding that it's hard for me to post my happy picture sometimes, so I have a bit of a backlog. The good news though, is that most days I have trouble choosing just one thing that made me happy!

Day 4 was B1 and I out on the town with his co-workers at a new tequila bar.  Margaritas, quesadillas and tacos and dancing was had by all.

...and it even resulted in a very rare drunk B1.  I love drunk B1.  He's so funny.
