Personal, Yearly Bucket List

April 4, 2016

Happiness Journal – March 11-31

Like I mentioned previously, I did a Happiness Journal again as a part of my second Yearly Bucket List. I love how this practice really reminds me to seek out and recognize the little things that bring me joy each day. I’ve recapped the first part of the month here – and now it’s time for the rest of the list.

  • 11th – Surprise stop for donut holes with Peanut on our way to school in the morning & a trip to the arboretum with the family after work
