It has been a crazy, busy week at work. I had hoped to take Friday off but deadlines are looming and I am headed to work today - well at least for a part of the day.
I need some time today to grocery shop for the weekend. Both boys and their families will be home - at least part of the weekend. And I am hosting Easter dinner - which is really no big deal as I love to host after years of travelling on holidays. Plus we will have an Easter egg hunt on Sunday as I think Avery is old enough to understand how it works - she is two.
But in the midst of the busyness I am taking time to notice the small things in life that make me happy. I have been participating in a challenge called #100happydays. It has been a really good exercise to think about the small everyday things that make you happy. I have noticed that some participants are posting pictures of past events in their lives - weddings, births etc - and not looking for the everyday things that we sometimes overlook. I guess everyone is accepting this challenge differently but I know it has made me stop and think in a crazy busy day about what really made me stop and smile.
Here are some of my pictures:
Baby doves on my window sill at work! They build a nest every Spring.
My hubby - who I adore and we have so much fun together.
A digital frame I finally loaded pictures to - it's at work and it makes me smile to walk in and see it.
Hyacinths in the garden

Pansies on the deck
A favorite quote!
What makes you happy?
