Grand Rapids Wedding Photographer // Made My Week – Vol. 6!
Happiness is found in the little things and the small victories. For the most part, everyday should bring a small smile, rush of excitement or a few happy tears. That has been my goal in writing these “Made My Week” weekly posts….finding something that made me happy that week and to help me appreciate the small things. I had NO idea that it would be so difficult for me to write them….not because I can’t find something that actually made my week, but I couldn’t decide which one of many that made my week the most! Happiness is everywhere…you just have to learn how to recognize it!
Just now…I decided to do a little experiment. I’m going to write down something that made me smile, gave me a rush of excitement or brought me a few happy tears for each day this week. I encourage you to do the same and write in the comment section of this post what made you happy!
Friday – Ate lunch with my mom and sister. Every once in a while a little girl time is needed!
Saturday – Spent the morning with my family at the race track. It’s like a family reunion every Saturday! (Follow my Instagram feed to see what I mean 🙂 )
Sunday – Took my niece shopping for school clothes. Seeing her so excited for new shoes, shirts and pants and giving her a little confidence for her first day as a high schooler at a new high school was so fun!
Monday – Bought a new mattress! Yes…..several years later….we will finally get a good nights sleep!
Tuesday – Walked with a sweet friend. Something about the gorgeous weather, nice conversation and a little exercise is good for the soul!
Wednesday – Movie Night! Saw the movie Planes with the hubby, our little girl and two wonderful nieces. Lots of giggles!
Thursday – Yard sales and Farmer’s Market with my BFF….making memories with one naughty little toddler at a time! lol
See…..my week wasn’t extravagant. It was simple, normal and made me happy. I think you have to choose happiness because everyday isn’t going to throw awesomeness at you….that’s why you have to be content with the little things.
My rush of excitement for the week…..over 1900 hits on a single blog post! Hokey peets….that’s a lot! (or at least it is to me!!)
