HAPPINESS IS

There is actually a game called "Happiness Is..." with a Peanuts theme that I used to play with some of my friends in high school (it is a kid's game, but we got great amusement out of it and added our own cards/categories).  It always makes me smile to think of it ;)  Here's a bit of the current Happiness Is cards in my world:

Happiness is:

  • The great wide open
  • Our German Shepherd, Rafiki
  • Crazy-in-love couples
  • Whiskey & gin, wine & beer
  • The smell of desert rain
  • Lace
  • Real people
  • Fragrant floral arrangements
  • Laid-back day-of schedules
  • Willingness to PDA for my camera
  • Tropical beaches
  • Retro, vintage, & boho aesthetics (but not all at the same time).  And 20's-40's Hollywood glam!
  • First Looks
  • "Gettin' down" on the dance floor
  • Skipping into Disneyland
  • Old-growth forests
  • Waffles
  • Rad tattoos
  • Meaningful DIY wedding details
  • Silliness

Happiness is NOT:

  • Brussel sprouts
  • Uninvolved grooms
  • Coffee-flavored anything
  • Stuffy people
  • Showing up for your E-session in clashing outfits
  • Rude guests
  • Bad drivers
  • Fidgeting with strapless gowns
  • Shot lists
  • The money dance (sorry!)
  • Skipping yoga
  • Sweaty weddings
  • Messy "getting ready" rooms
  • Bridezillas
  • Bossy people
