Happy Place

In lieu of yesterday’s post being somber and sad, I was determined to look around and notice the positive. This is a phrase I grew up hearing my mother use. And yes, sometimes it was in reference to her happy place…Disneyland.

DSC01532 I love writing and book making.
DSC01515 Paul has been writing up a storm and this always makes me smile. I still see invented spelling and he’s got these two characters going on a fantastic adventure. I notice inspiration from dinner, his real life friendship, and his imagination. So good!

DSC01544 Artwork by Henry is always cheerful. It’s a chance to see his world through his eyes.

Lunch with Sarah helped, a morning meeting with the amazing librarian at my school helped, and a tall glass of sparkling water brought to me by my husband definitely helps.
