What Makes Me Happy {The Pink Clutch}

It's Wednesday and time for my weekly series, What Makes Me Happy. Thanks to all of you who are reading and commenting each week.

The spotlight this week is on the oh-so stylish Paige of The Pink Clutch.

I was so excited when Ron asked me to share the things that make me happy and collaborate with him.  Although Ron and I have not met in person I know him very well!  His best friend Amanda is a dear and beloved friend of mine and to say she talks about him nonstop would be an understatement.  They have a long and dear friendship and with her stories I feel like there isn't anything I don't know about Ron and I look forward to the day that we will be drinking cocktails on his porch or mine!

There are so many things that make me happy it was hard to narrow it down to just a few things.  I am a girl who likes to find the joy in all things and will do my darnedest to be happy no matter what.  I had to sit and think about the things that inherently make me smile and do so on a regular basis.  When I made the time to do so it was easy to identify the things that truly make my heart happy.

Here are my top four ... 

First and foremost any time that I spend with my family and best friends brings me the greatest joy. I am blessed to be married to a great man and we have been blessed with three of the sweetest children I know.  No matter what they have going on they have the kindest hearts and nothing makes me happier than spending time with them.

Isn't my family the cutest??

My beloved pup Miles is my side kick and is glued to my side at almost all times of the day. Growing up we had a cat and I had never owned a dog until we adopted two Jack Russell Terriers in 2003. I had heard many times there is no love like the love of a dog but I didn't really understand what that meant until I fell in love with this cute little pup.  He is 12 pounds of barking, high energy unconditional love and I would not trade one day with him.  I do realize one day he will no longer be with me and I shutter to think of a day when he isn't right behind me or snuggled up next to me on the bed.  There is no love quite like the one he has for me and I will love him for ever!!

Do you see that little freckle in his left eyelid?  It is in the shape of a small heart and I am positive he was meant for me!!

I am surrounded by dear and precious best friends.  Any time that they chose to spend with me makes me so happy.  I know how busy life gets and I am thankful for the quality time they set aside for just me.  Nothing is better than the laughter and love of those closest to you. I love any time we find to be together.  Sometimes that is a text date, or a phone call or even better face time when we can really catch up and connect.  I could not be the wife or mother I am without the support of my precious and Godly friends!!

My people are everything to me!!!

And last but certainly not least, our home brings me great joy.  Not because of the way it looks but something much more.  I love when I pull in at night and all the lights are on and I can see people moving around and doing their thing.  It makes me so happy to see all the life inside.  Our house is full, full of life and love and the family we have worked hard to create.  Life isn't easy and no person or day is ever perfect, but when you step back and look at the whole picture it is always a good one.  

We are blessed and I am thankful. 

And being thankful makes me very, very happy!!

Happy Wednesday ... 

Thanks, Paige!
