The Happiness Project :: We meet!

{photo credit Foxtale Book Shoppe}

So on Saturday I made a trek into Atlanta
to attend Suzanne Palmieri's book signing.

It was amazing!
First of all, we all know that 
I'm a huge fan of her books.

Secondly, I saw her in the parking lot 
beforehand walking in the rain
and shared my umbrella with her 
and had this kismet moment 
when she offered to help me with my novel!

Squee!!!!!!
Trying not to act like a crazy fangirl.
Trying to keep my cool
but SQUEE!!!!

 Third, she gave the most 
encouraging talk about getting published.
I was so grateful to her
for being so open and lovely.


Finally, she wrote the 
sweetest thing above her signature.
I mean, really.

This is like a dream come true!
Good things are happening.

The Happiness Project :: My happy boy


So, Griffin had tubes put in his ears last week. 
This meant he had to put under and I was a nervous wreck.

This is his 3rd round of tubes and both times before
he woke up super angry from the anesthesia.
He was like The Hulk. Seriously.

Well, my little angel woke up calm and smiling.
The procedure went great and he already on the mend.

My heart was so relieved that he woke up happy.

The Happiness Project :: 4th of July Fun

We celebrated the holiday with my parents.
There was fishing.
There was good food.
There was sprinkler fun.

Many awesome memories were made.
I dare say that it was a perfect day.

The Happiness Project :: A quiet moment


I have to be honest with y'all.
I had to really search for happiness over the last week.
Poor Griffin has a horrible cough that's
been keeping us up for hours every night.

I am so exhausted.

So, my mom took pity on me
and watched the boys one afternoon
so I could rest.

I curled up in my bed with a great book.
If you're looking for an amazing summer read
you must get your hands on Suzanne Palmieri's latest book

 I just love the magic and wonder in this story.
It was the perfect escape
from my crazy little life.

The Happiness Project :: First Fish


The boys, Roger, and my dad
have been going fishing together in the evenings.

Yesterday Koen caught his first fish!
He casted and reeled it in all on his own!

I just love the look of pride and excitement
on his sweet little face.

Rythm of the Summer '14 :: Week 4

Summer is in full swing
and in an effort to make sure
that I don't just plop my kids in front of the TV all day,
I am pulling out all the stops
to keep my children engaged and entertained.

I plan to document some of our
simple summer adventures here each week.

Here's what we've done recently...


Played a game of Monopoly.


Made an awesome fort.


Played corn hole.


Had an awesome time at Legoland.


Checked out books at the library.


Went to Chuck-E-Cheese.

The Happiness Project :: Father's Day

We had a great celebration for Father's Day at my parents' house.
 There were awesome home made decorations 
and some super yummy BBQ. 
It was a great day.
