The Happiness Project :: Week 28


We grabbed a few books off our bookshelf
and took a little walk with them in hand
in my parents' neighborhood.

We had plans to visit a special library.


A few houses up the block from their house


It's a national organization that plants
boxes around towns and cities, 
fills them with books 
and operates on an honor system 
where people take a book and return it 
or a place different book to the box.


The kids were so excited to select
the book that they wanted to trade.


Then they sprawled out 
in a special little reading chair.


I feel so lucky
to live in a town where people care enough to
 foster a love for reading.


As we walked away
with our new books in hand,
another neighbor pulled up
to trade books in the Free Little Library.

I love the sense of community that we felt on our little journey. 

  


Want to join me in my quest
to scout out happiness for a whole year?
Simply post a photo of something that
makes you wildly happy and tell us all about it.
Then, steal my button and include it in your post.
