This time next week we’ll be turning our calendars over to February already! How has January been treating you? It’s been a pretty busy month for me. I definitely wanted to hit the ground running in 2017, and I feel like I was able to do that. This last week is more about preparing for February, and it feels good to be a little bit more relaxed and less rushed.
What are you planning for February? Anything exciting? I’ve got an aura photography party planned, the Stuffed Animal Sleepover, photoshoots, and a free e-course coming your way. Plus plenty more content and projects for you to enjoy! Requests and input are always welcome!
Before I get into the normal stuff for the happiness post, I want to share something amazing that happened to me that made me lose control over my body and start falling backwards… I MET ILANA GLAZER. She was at the march, and it was only happenstance that I ran into her because we had to wait for Leigh’s brother. I can’t believe it happened, and I can’t believe I was so excited that I didn’t think to show her that I was her for Halloween with Ashley. We recreated Broad City’s “Eight Fucking Thousand Dollars” video from season one (see below).
Here are some pictures other from my week!

I really like this post. I’ve been seriously depressed and it reminds me of all the good things still going in the world. My list: making banana bread with my son, your dance video and all the others on instagram, pasta, travel bloggers on Snapchat, my new blog header and Facebook groups that just uplift and motivate.
I’m so sorry you’ve been struggling with depression. I’m glad this post gave you a second for perspective to focus on the good you’ve been able to experience lately!! I love how many things you were able to list. what a beautiful life you’re able to lead! Feel free to check out this podcast where I talk about self-care for people with depression.
You are my happiness this week.
In our current state of terror and complete unease; you routinely bring happiness into my life.
I cannot ever thank you enough
Aw Amy. Thank you so much for saying that. I’m really sorry that’s how you’re feeling, but I’m really grateful I’m able to bring some easy and joy into your world despite the chaos and unrest.
