Take time to do what makes your soul HAPPY

Lately, I've been doing A LOT of what makes me happy. 

Ever since I decided to take on less clients, due to something pretty time consuming coming up(close family and friends know- and no, it's not a baby and I'm not secretly engaged that I know of on both things!), I've had more down time, time to explore new things, time to be alone with God, and time to myself. I've used this time wisely to do things that make me happy. 

As easy as it sounds, it's not easy to do things that make you happy. School gets in the way, work uses up your daily awake hours, commitments take your time, "adulting" gets in the way- you know, having to pay bills and stuff?...

This "down" time has made me realize that there are things in my life that I could do without and there are things in my life that I crave/need/want.

Things that make me happy:
-Spending time with my beau, IG: FrantheManChronicles
-Playing with my fur babies
-Getting to see my family
-Holding my baby niece(Selene)
- Hanging out with my cousins
-Talking with my sister
-School, the learning aspect(believe it or not, this actually makes me happy)
-WINE....who doesn't get happy with wine?!
-Working out
-Photography, obviously
-Walks in the park, not really loving the runs, but I do them anyway
-Watercolor painting, I love it!! 
-Decorating my house, it's actually kind of fun
-Binge watching my favorite shows
-Hanging out with my creative friends
-Meeting new people, and then getting to photograph them
-Cooking, I love making new recipes
-Crafting, which is why I DIY'd this chalkboard quote!!!

And then here are some pictures of my fur-children, just because they're SO CUTE. ahhhhh, I can't get enough of them!!!
