52 weeks of happy 31/52

"The happiest people don't have the best of everything,
they just make the best of everything"
Making me happy this week...
♥Peace poetry. Both my kids won third place in Powell River for their Peace poems and are now published authors in a book called Tell Me a Story of Peace. I think they are hilariously wonderful and every time I read them I smile. "19 people doing art" is peace for sure.

♥Swap gifts. I signed up for a swap on IG and was given a partner ages ago. We finally got around to exchanging gifts. Thanks Julie Weir. I loved it all and feel spoiled rotten!

♥Homemade Father's Day. The kids outdid themselves this year. Lily made Neil a super fantastic card and an amazing watercolour of him as well as a clay handprint. My Jack painted him the picture and made him a mug for tea but most likely his pens.
These gifts are priceless and will be treasured forever.

As always, joining the lovely Jen over at Little Birdie.


  1. Oh I love those poems and how wonderful to have them in print! Gorgeous happy things. X

  2. The poems are great - it will be interesting to look back on them in the years to come and see how their views change. I hope they keep doing these poems every year. Neil got a landslide on Father's Day - so much creativity and talent. You guys must both be so proud of Jack and Lily. Awesome post!
