The Happiness Project :: My Bench

So, this bench was an integral part of my childhood.
It sat in the entryway of the home I grew up in.
I had so much fun playing on it.
One day it might have transformed into a school bus.
The next day, I might have pretended that it was a pirate ship.

I loved playing on the bench.

My parents passed it down to me
a few years ago 
and I hate to admit this but
it sat in the corner of my bedroom
catching piles of unfolded laundry.

Until I recently put the clothes away,
polished the old wood,
purchased some pillows,
and sat it in the entryway of my own home.

The kids love it just as much as I did.
It's become a comfy spot for Griffin to read
and I often find Koen pretending like it's a race car.

It makes me so happy to see
my beloved bench 
still providing joy for me
and my family after all these years.

PS Sorry I posted late today,
my Internet went down for a bit
but were back in business now.

Want to join me in my quest
to scout out happiness in our lives?
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.

Oh that is a "bench of happiness" for sure! Hand it down to your oldest child one day so the fun can continue!
