At the beginning of 2016, I decided to sign up for 100happydays. It was a challenge that I tried in 2015 and failed.
The idea is simple. For 100 days, share a daily photograph of a happy moment from that day.
I had a few misgivings about signing up this year. But I eventually decided that I wouldn’t be joining 100happydays to be smug or flaunt my happiness in people’s faces. I would be doing it for the same reasons that I write my Because I’m happy posts and that I started this blog in the first place.
On my low days, I struggle to remember the things I love and that bring a smile to my face. So it is important that I remind myself that sometimes a bunch of beautiful flowers in the house, wearing a new pair of shoes or going for a walk in the woods hand in hand with my daughter is true happiness.
That is why I joined in again. And why I am now over half way through the 100 days. I have only missed two days so far. One when I was ill and the other was the day before our 12 week scan when I was a nervous wreck.
100HappyDays – part one
My Captured Moment
I am now over half way through 100happydays and I thought I would share some of my favourite photographs from the challenge and their narrative from my Instagram feed.
Once again I am linking up with My Captured Moment, a beautiful linky run by my gorgeous friend Heledd who blogs at Running in Lavender. The idea is simply to share photographs that have captured a special moment in life.
100HappyDays – Day four
I’m feeling a little miserable today as I have a migraine and Mr H has gone back to work after a lovely long Christmas break. I am cheering myself up by admiring my sparkly nails and eating yummy, homemade winter muffins.
100HappyDays – day eight
Sharing some quiet time with this beauty.
100HappyDays – day nine
Hot chocolate and Marie Kondo! A few moments to myself in Costa before an opticians appointment.
100HappyDays – day seventeen
This one is a little poorly today with a cold. She seems to just want to sit on the sofa and watch Octonauts. But I’m very much enjoying cuddles under the duvet.
100HappyDays – Day 21
It may be grey, wet and miserable outside but these stunning daffodils are bringing some sunshine into my living room.
100HappyDays – Day 32
The stunning view from our living room at sunset. We are so blessed to see the woods from our house.
100HappyDays – Day 39
I’m busy putting together outfits from Little Miss H’s old clothes for the wonderful From a Mother to Another charity run by JoJo Maman Bebe. I loved seeing Little Miss H in these clothes and I am thrilled that a child from a vulnerable family from the UK or a Syrian refugee living in Lebanon will also get use from these clothes. Plus I also get to support this fabulous campaign which runs until 5th March 2016.
100HappyDays – Day 44
I have had such a lovely day today – seeing my fab BFF, having lunch at the Menier Chocolate Factory and then watching the amazing Sheridan Smith in Funny Girl.
100HappyDays – Day 49
Yesterday we went for a walk in the woods again. It was a few days after Little Miss H was attacked by a dog. And although she was a little wary of them. She was also really brave and we had a lovely time. I am so proud of my courageous daughter.
