International Day of Happiness & @eatingarainbow

Since today is International Day of Happiness, I was thinking about things that contribute to my happiness and things that I do to make others happy.

Things that make me happy

  • Sunshine and blue skies
  • My smiley little girl
  • Daily walks with my canine baby, Chance
  • My husband surprising me by occasionally doing something thoughtful like doing the dishes after supper or making me a cup of tea
  • A delicious, healthy meal
  • Being with the people I love most
  • Seeing my little one with her grandparents
  • A good dinner party
Things that I do to make others happy
  • Cook delicious meals for loved ones
  • Send a quick note, text, DM, tweet, FB post to say hello
  • Be positive and not get caught up in negative energy
  • Random acts of kindess
  • Smile 
I may not have a tremendous impact on others, but hope that even the smallest gestures make a difference to those I interact with.

One thing that made Little One extremely happy was this video that Veggie Girl sent her.

Veggie Girl's Mom is a lovely friend of mine and she had heard about how sad Little One was when her friends told her that veggies are "disgusting". If you've been reading my blog, you'll know that Little One absolutely loves vegetables and fruit! Her favourite veggies are broccoli, cucumber, spinach, okra, green beans, and zucchini. 

If you haven't had the chance to meet Kia and Hannah, they're the dynamic duo behind Today I Ate a Rainbow. They make Healthy Eating fun for kids! To find out more about them, check them out here. To purchase a Rainbow Kit, visit their site here.

Thank you SO much, Kia and Hannah! Your video made my little girl very happy. I don't know how many times she has watched your video! Numerous times! That's for sure!
