I’m so close to the end of my happy days challenge. It’s kind of freaking me out. My days are flying by so quickly this fall. Once again, I am grateful for the opportunity to stop, even for a few seconds, to mark the small moments.
#100happydays began as an Instagram exercise in gratitude, a challenge to take a moment to be purposefully thankful for the many happy moments that make up my days.
Because this is an Instagram project, I am limiting myself to something I can photograph. Likewise, I use very few words to describe these images.
Day 81. New artwork hanging in the upstairs hallway. #myboys
Day 84: Fall sports season. Flag football on one field, soccer on the other. All boys playing.
Day 85: Always a happy day when the finished magazine arrives on my desk. #Blueprint
Day 87: A repost from my mom. A few hours of food, tea, Scrabble and old photo albums. Just what I needed on a rainy Saturday.
Day 88: it’s been a while since the 5 of us were able to sit down to eat together. #grateful
Day 89: Rocking it old school. At Smeltekop Music for trombone repair. The place hasn’t changed in 20+ years. — at Smeltekop Musical Instrument Repair.
Day 90: #tbt Proof that my mother has always found vacuuming, not just enjoyable, but maybe even glamorous.
