(which is a family word from my childhood, referring to any thought or activity that makes you feel happy, as in, "that's very happiness-making.")
i am all about happiness-making this month, this space in between.
my amazing mother has made us a quilt for our bed to celebrate our year, this year of us reaching twenty years married and me reaching forty, and us having an oasis to mark it.
and there are stars all over it
and a very speshal message is on the back.
it looks very goldy brown in the photos,
but it's creamy irl.
today i went off in search of happiness:
baby cuddles: and breathing in that warm new baby scent.
syrupy lemon muffins: with lemons from our tree.
a gym class: i know all the jackie chan moves, you know.
a sunshine beach moment and surf in my hair: no i didn't swim, but i saw three crazy girlies shrieking in the waves!
chicken soup: three bowls full, but no vino cos i have a weigh in on monday lol.
and a lovely play with a rather eclectic fabric mix: which is swiftly turning itself into another celebratory quilt...
