Just finished reading The Happiness Project

by Gretchen Rubin. I read the book, not because I want to be happier (because I find myself to be pretty happy already), but because I was interested in what she thought would make one happy. I naturally find happiness in many things (my salvation, my kids, my husband, my friends...and when one of 'my' preschoolers tells me he loves me) but she really made me think about what makes one happy. In my opinion, it was not a page turner, but I did enjoy reading it. If you are interested in a happiness project of your own, visit to read about her suggestions.

here's to being HAPPY!

The Infamous Bucket List

As my 40th birthday is approaching this year, I have begun to think of things that I have done, wish I hadn't done, and things that I'd still like to do. Some are small tasks that I'd like to complete and some are pretty big deals. So since I am not much for resolutions, here are the Top Ten Things Michelle Wants to Do in Her Lifetime:

1. Organize my stamp collection. I am always trying to perfect this.
2. Blog regularly.
3. Be more creative and funny.
4. Go to Hawaii (I once gave up on this dream, but I'm putting it back on the list!).
5. Own a VW Bug.
6. Live in Manhattan, NY for 1 year.
7. Travel the US with Scott in an RV.
8. Have relationships with my grandchildren.
9. Catch up on my scrapbooks!
10. Walk across the United States.

There ya have it. I'm laying it out there! So, what's on your bucket list?
