Happiness is...

Happiness is...


...watching Steve rototill all the weeds in the garden, so my wild jungle plot is magically transformed into a Martha Stewart type garden (for at least a week)...


Happiness is...

...biking with Steve up, up, up Cascade River Road, where we had a killer view and got to consume lots of chocolate, since we burnt so many calories on the way up...


Happiness is...

...weeding blueberries with my boys, without them whining, not even once.  Miracles do happen...


Happiness is...

...planting beans in the garden, since the soil is FINALLY warm enough to do so!  It's nice to observe all the bounty we already receive from this year's garden while sowing beans...



Happiness is...

...snuggling with my loved ones, even if one particular loved one squirms and wiggles while the other loved one is trying to take a photo...


Happiness is...

...playing with goats, of course.  What can be funner than watching these goofballs doing their crazy tricks?




"No, don't brush me!  Please don't brush me!!!"

Happiness is...

....squirting piglets with the water gun, or attempting to do such a thing, until your mother yells at you to stop it.


Happiness is...

...watching Steve teach archery to nine young boys.  He is so courageous, that man.  Taking on nine exuberant kids with bows and arrows... Wow.  He had three friends help him out with supervision, so the adult-to-kid-ratio was super safe!


Happiness is...

...sitting by the creek knitting, by myself... Ahhhh, heaven....


Happiness is...

...sticking my nose into any flowers that are exploding and bursting forth in my garden!






Where are you finding happiness these days?

  1. Beautiful Corina!! So good to sit back and smell the roses. Sometimes in this busy life it's just so good to stop working for a few moments and look up and see all the beauty God has placed in our lives! Tonight on our bike ride to Rasar was one of those times just feeling content with the life we've been blessed with, with all the work and the challenges, there is much hope and joy to look forward to. Bless you friend!! Glad you are getting your beloved sunshine!! Xoxo

    1. Jenni, so true! I decided to focus on the good things in my life, since my life has been so full of stress and pain with two of my friends passing over in the past two weeks. It's time to really concentrate on the happiness in my life!
      I'm glad you guys got to go on a bike ride to Rasar! It's magical, isn't it?

  2. Happiness is.....milking a cow every morning. The milk, butter, cream, and cheese that comes forth.

    Happiness is.....building our little urban homestead.....watching it flourish.

    Happiness is..... a hot cup of tea, snuggles from a little who is cold on this morning, and two others running crazy and giggling.
