The Happiness Project :: Catching the apples

So, I got all swept up with life and forgot
to share about the night my mom and I
dropped everything and drove to Atlanta 
to meet one of the most amazing authors, Sarah Addison Allen.

During her lecture, Sarah shared that 
when she was working on her first novel 
she had a pivotal moment as she wrote a scene 
where a character came home after 10 years and 
when she got out of the car an Apple rolled in front of her. 

Sarah then had the idea that a grumpy Apple tree 
had actually thrown it at her
 and the premise of her book "Garden Spells" was born. 
Then when I met her we had this conversation.
Me: I'm an aspiring writer, will you write advice with your signature?
Sarah: Oh, so much pressure!
Me: (off the cuff) What about Catch the Apples?
Sarah: (clapping hands) Oh, that's so good!
Me: (with a wink) I'll give you that one.

How cool is that?

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.
