The Happiness Project | Washington DC Photographer

While we were on vacation I picked up the book called, The Happiness Project. It was hailed as similar to Eat, Pray, Love one of my all time favorites, so I thought I would like it. The author, Gretchen Rubin writes about her year of trying to live happier, while not an unhappy person, she just wants to see if she can appreciate life a bit more. Each month she tackles a different aspect of what she thinks brings her happiness. I have really enjoyed reading it and it has inspired me to do some of the same things she does - like organize and de-clutter, act the way you want to feel, take time to be creative and so on. During the book she is working on starting a blog and vows to blog everyday - now there is one I need to adopt! The book and blog might be inspirational to you too!

While we are on the top of happiness .....here is one of the things that brings me the most happiness....the mountains. I may live in the city and not get to the mountains a lot....but there is nothing that brings me the same feeling as when I am in the mountains. This photo esp. b/c it is from my amazing engagement weekend in Colorado.
