My Happy Place and Sunday Morning Coffee

| |

Where is your happy place? Is it your home or a destination? Or is it a state of mind when you are feeling good about yourself?

My Happy Place is something I always strive for. It’s when I am with my family, feeling relaxed, in a peaceful environment, and feeling healthy. What is yours?

Thanks for joining me for Sunday morning coffee. Today I am sharing my weekly thoughts about entertaining, decor, crafts, recipes, and my happy place!

Sunday Morning Coffee

My Happy Place

Spring Table with DIY Terra Cotta Pot

There is a saying I have repeated at least a hundred times, “You are only as happy as your least happiest child.” While I agree that it is true, I have another saying I think we should add to our thoughts.

It is “You are only as happy as your least happiest self”.

It’s so true.

And I think the most important thing we can all do is make a concerted effort to be happy.

I have always tried to focus on the things I can control. Things like our health, simplifying life, making smart decisions, and making happiness a priority.

I caught myself three times this week telling someone how much happier I am. And why is that?

It’s the changes I made at the first of the year to take better care of myself.

Things like exercising five days a week, ending my workday at 6:00pm, and sleeping a lot longer than I ever have.

But it also includes simplifying my life and getting rid of the clutter. I am working hard at cleaning out closets and donating all the things I have intended to use but haven’t.

And guess what? Suddenly everywhere has become my happy place.

This week is going to be a lot of fun and we are going to try some new things! We start out the week sharing our outdoor kitchen and then we head into lots of lemon-themed posts. We will be sharing lemon cocktails, lemon recipes, and a beautiful lemon-themed table. Then I will be sharing plans for our beach house kitchen makeover and ending the week with a cupcake bouquet.

I am so excited to make this bouquet. Because all of the flowers are cupcakes!
