The Happiness Project

I came across this excellent blog over a year ago and changed my life. It is written by Gretchen Rubin and it is about her adventures in finding happiness. I would like to introduce you to The Happiness Project!

It is one of the main reasons that I am doing The August Fun Extravaganza. It is the reason that I have dedicated my life to making the childhood of Alex and Mallory the best experience they could ever have. I could just coast through this time. We could sit in the house and watch TV all day. We could not make plans and just be lazy but that is not me. I want them to have wonderful memories of their lives as children.

What really made an impact on me was this movie that Gretchen made.

The Years Are Short Movie.

Watch it with a tissue. I'm serious. Every single time I watch it I have tears running down my face.


  1. Wow...that is so true...not I am going to gather up my girls and head outside for some adventures together...Thanks!

  2. I love the Happiness Project as well, but I've never seen the movie until just now. Wow. I'm going to make a better effort to do fun things with my little guy starting today!

  3. I'm sorry I got lost with 15,000 subscribers in feedburner on her page. I'll recover and check it out for real soon.


I love you. You are my best friend! Your hair looks fantastic today!
