happiness is...

I know the day of thanks is coming up fast (where in the hey did the month go?!), and many have posted their thankfuls. Along those lines, I've been thinking a lot lately about what makes me happy. I'm still in love with our not-so-new (anymore) new place and I still find myself smiling at things around my home. We may not live in a house, and who knows when we will! But I'm glad I've been able to make a home for me and my family; a place where we can find peace and comfort in a time where our lives are still full of uncertainties... so, here are just a few things in and around my abode that make me happy:

my family room

especially my couch (thanks Andrea!) AND my newish pillows (thanks mom!)

my happy little tree towels

my sewing machine; she's a CHAMP!
I've got lots of fun things in store for you Miss Kenmore ;)

and most of all, this face!

See, so much to be thankful for! And believe me, I am :)
So, what brings you happiness this fine season? *B

  2. This post makes me happy. I love hearing from you! And I really wish you and Miss Kenmore were here to decorate my house. I am clueless at that kind of stuff...but you, my friend, definitely have a knack for it!

  4. My happiness:

    Finishing my first ever crochet gift for Christmas
    My mother's piano
    Upcycled paper projects

    Munchikin smiles
    Apples from my Grandma's tree
