I Have A Happy Heart

Heart

Mom and Dad,
Nicola, Makenna, and Cam.
Has there ever been a time,
When we haven’t been an awesome fam?

Vegas was epic,
Just like all our holidays.
We manage to break the rules,
And have fun in our weirdo ways.

Seven years
Is WAY too many days.
Navigating life without you around,
Is like finding my way out of the toughest maze.

So on this day,
When I can’t see all your gorgeous faces,
I’ll think of the next time,
We can eat, drink, and laugh in crazy places.

ps.
This ode should include,
Some love for my Gran and Chuck,
Without your unwavering support,
I’d be s**t out of luck.

Gran’s weekly phone calls,
Chuck’s endless flattery,
Pulls down my walls,
And keeps me going like an Energizer battery.

I love ALL of you. My readers, my family, my grandparents, my aunts and uncles, my new family (the Farrar’s!), my coworkers, and my closest friends.

Whether you’re single or taken, just make sure you give at least one person a hug today 🙂

 

Happy Friday: Self Love Project

How much do you love yourself? Why do you love yourself? How often do you remember these reasons? I spout a lot about how important it is to appreciate the amazing people in your life, but what about you? I don’t think anyone can be happy unless they truly have confidence in all their quirks and weirdness.

Back in October I read a great post by one of my favorite blogs: Once A Month For Ladies. They asked their readers to send a picture showing one reason they love themselves. I got all giggly when I watched it.

So here it goes… I love myself because I am completely neurotic about keeping our apartment clean. And just because I really do love myself, here’s another one. I love myself because I really dislike sharing my food.

Don’t worry, I won’t ask you to send me photos but how about this…

Comment on this post: One (or two) reasons you love yourself. And men, I’d love to hear from you too! 🙂
