52 Weeks of Happiness :: Week 42


The joy of Christmas.

I decided to really experience Christmas

and not be hidden behind a camera taking pictures

but truly living in the moment.

So, you will have to take my word

without the photos to prove that

it was wonderful holiday.

I can tell you that there was

family, moving prayers, splendid food,

hugs, presents being torn open, laughter,
glitter, chocolate, and a few Christmas meltdowns.

Even the meltdowns felt magical.


Here is the wrapping paper carnage
left in my living room.

Doesn't it look like a toy bomb exploded?

It was an amazing Christmas!


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.
Don't forget to link up to Mr. Linky.

Merry Christmas, Leigh! (Belated) :) It looks like y'all had a great one! I love all the wrapping paper carnage left behind--ours looked the same way!

Sending love to you and your family! We've been out of town for awhile (and now we all have colds) so I am just getting back into the old routine.
