Happy Places

My New Happy Place

In this chaos-filled world it’s important to find or create Happy Places to feed your soul. Somewhere to step back or away. A hopeful point of view that renews and regenerates.

Today it was as simple as splurging on a pot of flowers.

(Okay, two…)


I’ve been looking at that burned up ol’ stump long enough. Time to add some color to it! The end result made me happy.

I was also tickled to be grilling out this Memorial Day weekend. Thank you to every soul who contributed to such unabashed freedom. (Feeling blessed.) Your sacrifice has not gone unnoticed, nor unappreciated.

Grill Full of Goodness

Make the world a happier place, beginning with yours. Do whatever you need to do to give… thank a Veteran… and remember the fallen. We owe them so much.

Enjoying a peaceful (and tasty) weekend at the lake,

~ Kim

  2. I am going to spend my first day working in my new classroom at my new teaching job. When the kids come in a few weeks, I am going to just keep this post up on my laptop. It will be my “Happy Place” when the day gets a little too long. . . .

    • Mae, I sure wish we could’ve connected (she says almost a month later, lol!) while you were driving through Oklahoma. There are desolate spots and others so thick with greenery they’re still untouched. (Two of the reasons I love Oklahoma — solitude and scenery.) Hope you had a good trip, xo.

  3. Dear Kim,

    I know what you mean by creating Happy Places. We are doing major renovations to our house and I made sure there are many happy places in our plans. Totally agree that we need to be thankful to the fallen who have given the ultimate sacrifice to ensure our freedom.

    • Dear ChopinandMysaucepan, YAY for the Happy Places in your renovation plans. They will help you get through the chaos of remodeling “envisioning” the end results. It’s good to have something to look forward to — and back. Hugs to the fallen and their families.

    • Hear, hear to al fresco, Shirley! Even though your high-rise digs don’t allow much (any?) “yard” to create such surroundings, your creativity will come through in every space your heart and imagination touches, xo.

    • Liz, thank you! I’m in the throes of post-travel exhaustion (which I know you can relate to) and that was about as much as I could muster for coherent thought, lol! Sometimes “short ‘n’ sweet” posts and replies say more than meets the eye. Much appreciated! xo
