a recipe for happy*

 turn the tv off * listen to silly music * eat favorite foods * dance like you mean it * bundle up and get outside * get wet and muddy and cold * come inside and change into something soft and elastic waisted * cuddle in blankets and drink tea * read stories and tell your own * giggle lots, tickle, hug, kiss, and get sleepy * settle in for a cozy nap

yesterday was the worst and i cried after the kids went to bed and decided that we have to make some big changes for my sanity and well being as well as theirs. 
today is the best! fresh air, lots of play and music and books and sleep! 
happy mama ♥ happy toddler

Have you not been happy lately? so sorry to hear that. I love looking at your pictures and reading about your stories and your life, though I don't comment as much as I should. You seem like a very beautiful woman (inside and out) with adorable kids (and your chickens are cute, too!) and you make some really cool creations! Hope you can stay happy and keep on enjoying life! Thanks for sharing this blog with us!
