Floating around the interwebs was the tag #100happydays it was all over people’s instagram photos and I was so intrigued by it as I always love to try a good photo challenge.
Upon looking it up I found out it was an actual photo challenge for which you could sign up for! (http://100happydays.com/) and I became incredibly terrified by the accountability and statistics of this challenge. But, we all need to find some happy in our lives right? So on February 13th, I decided I was going to pursue this and NOT fail. I’m now just about 60 days in and haven’t missed a day. I’ve also realized that some days there is an incredible amount of happy in my life (wanting to post two or three, sometimes even four pictures, but I had already posted for that day) and some days it seems like there is none, but if you search really hard you can always find some happy.
I’m learning a lot about our life and what makes me happy, and I’m so happy to share some of that with you. Here’s the past two months of my 100 happy days challenge, follow me on instagram for the rest. Maybe even sign up yourself? Let me know in the comments if you do, I want to follow yours too!
Grey and yellow… and comic book decor!!! OMG we loved this wedding! Words cannot describe how jealous we were of their insane DIY talents. But enough gushing, onto the story of their November day…
Karen and Robin had their day all picked out and ready for either a very brown or very winter wedding. But they couldn’t have picked a better date, because winter came in full force to Edmonton that day.
The snowy picturesque scene that surrounded the city as they got married in front of a small group of friends and family at the Petroleum Club was perfection! Their day was full of DIY details and of course, Bee’s fave the boys were all dressed in bow ties! The lovely ladies sported individualize floor length gowns, and Karen was beautiful in her perfect dress. (It was to die for and her beauty that day was absolutely timeless, my favorite part was the gold shrug for the party later on!)
Although it was a little chilly for us all out there, the day was so relaxed and these two were so excited. The gals even shed their coats for a few wintery photos. Their day was so full of love and happiness, and each detail was perfection! Take a peek at their pretty November day…
I was always too scared to share this video, never posted about it, never made a big deal of it. This was my first official jump into video. Here’s what I wrote about, over one year ago. And how it turned out.
“Over the month of February I was inspired to take part in a very interesting and unique project. After an online workshop with the amazing Sue Bryce and Hailey Bartholomew about using videos for your business, they challenged photographers and videographers all over the world to take part in this, I couldn’t resist. This project entailed that you bring your camera everywhere, film things EACH DAY that make you smile, and then edit this into a less then 2 minute video. I was so excited to do this as I LOVE video! (and I want to get really, really, really, good at it!)
I have always been a complainer and I think we all have those days and days in a row where life seems to be pretty uneventful, especially in the dreary winter here. This month while I played with filming each day I found a lot of things that make me smile, that I was excited about, and most of all that I was grateful for! I really became appreciative of the life I have and the people who are in it.
Projects like this don’t have to be through video. Daily photo challenges, even on your iPhone, can really make you find things in life that are truly worthwhile and fun again! So, I challenge you! Try a project like this out, its amazing for both skill improvement and general happiness!
