So, I have finally decided to start a blog.

"I have decided to be happy, because it is good for my health." ~Voltaire

So, I have finally decided to start a blog. I've followed numerous blogs for many, many years and I have always thought how wonderful it would be to look back at all those life moments, big and small. I want to capture the little details, how I was feeling, the funny things people said - in other words, the details we all typically forget. 
This blog will be filled with:

  • Big moments (holidays, our wedding)
  • Small moments (date nights, girls nights)
  • My family 
  • Recipes (both healthy and not so healthy)
  • Crafts
  • Mundane tidbits from my life that may only be interesting to me!
As for the name of my blog:

For me, happiness is a choice. Everyday, in every moment we choose how to respond to the world. In my life, I am choosing to be happy (at least I strive to!). The path I take, the people I spend my time with, and even my job reflect this choice. Hopefully, with this blog I'm able to capture this philosophy! 

Well, there you have it. I'm starting this blog (which for now is essentially a diary) and hoping that I keep it filled with the things I love! 

Welcome to my view of things!
