What Makes Me Happy {Early Morning Silence}

Thanks to all for supporting this new series, What Makes Me Happy. Thanks too to those of you who have decided to share What Makes YOU Happy in the coming weeks. If you write a blog and would like to be considered for a guest post in the future, please email me at uptownacorn@gmail.com.




Early mornings make me happy. Of course, I do appreciate the early mornings when I can stay in my own bed, but life gets in the way of that. As with most folks, I do work. It is the time I get to school (6:30 AM) until chapel (7:55 AM), that makes me most happy. The halls are quiet. There are no interruptions, and I can get most of my school work and lesson planning done during that time. Of course, there is a hot cup of joe in my hand.





I have been a morning person most of my life (Honey and my sis can attest to that fact.), so arriving at work before the sun rises is nothing new.

Early morning silence is a great way to start my day and what makes me happy.

What makes YOU happy today?

Mardi Gras 2017 {Nightfall Facade}

During the long holiday weekend, J & I moved the bins of Mardi Gras downstairs, and I decorated the facade of the home. Being so close to the Uptown parade route, it is always fun to decorate over-the-top. There were not many changes to the facade this year, so I'll let the purple, green, and gold speak for themselves.



Where else but New Orleans, could the colors purple, green, and gold be so chic?












I hope you will follow and comment on my Mardi Gras tour this season.

Laissez les bon temps rouler.



Mardi Gras 2017, y'all!
