R E M I N I S C I N G Thinking back on an excursion my sister and I went on, located off the coast of Koh Samui, Thailand: It was a preserved national park and we spent the day kayaking, hiking alongside monkeys to the top of the mountain, and taking in the gorgeous views.
Wedding bells & all that is beautiful. 💕
I stumbled on this just the other day and saved it because I thought about what a great reminder it is. There are so many who struggle trying to reach or “find” happiness, generally looking to material or tangible things, new adventures, money or promotions, to fulfill the desire when in reality, we have the choice to simply “be happy.” It’s a state of being: when we are thankful for the wonderful things we’ve been blessed with in our lives, and rely less on the things of this world to bring us to a place of happiness, we find that happiness comes from within.
Good morning and happy Monday friends 🙂 Just thought I’d share this cute picture I found that totally put a smile on my face.
Well, hello friends. I hope you have all had a wonderful holiday season with friends and family. Christmas has come and gone, but my beautifully lit tree still stands, proving us with warmth and cheer, reminding us that the holidays are not quite over (which I’m actually happy about). As I sit here and sip on my delicious cappuccino, and enjoy the peace and quiet of our home this morning now that my in-laws have left, I thought about how this year has literally flown by. We’re about to start a new year and a new chapter in our lives, which made me start to think about all that 2014 entailed.
