#100HappyDays 11-20

With another ten days finished, I am starting to see what people meant when they said they felt happier while doing the #100HappyDays challenge. Follow my other posts from my summer adventures on my Instagram account (link below) and get a play-by-play viewing of my #100HappyDays posts!


Day 11: Turkey Burgers. Since I am gluten free, there are few foods I get excited for. Turkey burgers are one of them. They were especially delicious in the cast-iron pan, which I am sad I don’t have at school. IMG_1186

Day 12: My niece turned one on July 2nd. This was definitely a perfect picture for my #100HappyDays. I can’t believe she is already one. Time really flies. IMG_1200

Day 13: Fireworks. This was the first year we were not in Boston. We went to the club to watch the fireworks from the golf course and they were really beautiful. IMG_1236

Day 14: My niece. She is always a source of amusement and happiness for me. It never fails to amaze me how intrigued children are by keys and things that are not toys. IMG_1244

Day 15: Movie night. On Saturday nights my niece and nephew watch a movie and it is usually an animated one. We happen to have a lot of Disney movies on VHS at our summer house. My throwback to The Lion King 2 was a fun one. IMG_1246

Day 16: Trouble maker. Like I said, it never fails to amuse me how much children like things like computers. IMG_1259

Day 16: The club near our house saved their fireworks until the 6th of July. We watched them on the water which was a totally surreal experience. IMG_1287

Day 17: Back to childhood. This summer I discovered how calming building lego sets is. My nieces and nephews love it because they get to play with them. This bat cave was actually really awesome. IMG_1342

Day 18: A new Iphone. A few days I ago I dropped my phone and the screen smashed. I was living with a phone wrapped in plastic until my new one arrived. It is quite exciting to not be dealing with my broken screen anymore. IMG_1346

Day 19: Movie night. I am a five year old in disguise. It is obviously an excuse to re-watch The Lego Movie. IMG_1372

Day 20: Scrapbooking. I love scrapbooking and basically anything involving crafts. A few weeks ago I went to Michaels and stocked up on all the basics I would need. Today, I am starting the project in one of the most beautiful spots of our house.

#100happydays 1-10

After ten days of doing #100HappyDays, I definitely feel happier.  Given everything that has been going on in Israel the past few weeks, happiness only helps. When I started getting more skilled at photography I would see things through a lens. #100HappyDays has been a weird extension of that with my IPhone camera. As I wrote in my blog post yesterday, I will be posting my most recent pictures every ten days. Here are my first ten. Follow them more regularly and other pictures of my summer adventures I post at my Instagram account!

Day 1: Salad with grilled strawberries and pecans. This summer I discovered I do much better with lighter dinners. Our experimentation with  different types have been quite delicious. This was a perfect summer salad. 


Day 2: A view of the water from the boat. We have become big boaters in the past year. I love the excursions we take and the views are usually really awesome. 


Day 3: Michaels Scrapbooking Aisle. I love scrapbooking. Like, I am absolutely in love with it. I am finally getting around to making an epic travel scrapbook and obviously a trip to Michaels was necessary. IMG_1137

Day 4: Tea and a book. With all the activity I do, it is nice to just sit back and relax sometimes. In the evenings the light is really beautiful. Chris Bohjalian’s book “The Light in the Ruins” with a cup of tea was a perfect end to my day. 


Day 5: Taza Chocolate. I LOVE chocolate. I might be a little too obsessed. When we got a shipment I was excited for obvious (and good) reasons. A) It’s kosher. B) It’s gluten free. C) It’s absolutely delicious. 


Day 6: Trampoline snapshot. Everyone deserves a chance to revert back to childhood for a few minutes every day. When we got our trampoline installed it was obviously a  photo op. 


Day 7: The tennis court. This is where I spend the most of my day. When it is perfect weather I am in heaven. I feel at home on the court at this point. Absolutely nothing could sour my mood when I am out there. 


Day 8: My nieces and nephew. I love being an aunt. It’s a bonus that I have some really adorable nieces and nephews. When they match though, it’s just too much cuteness. 


Day 9: My niece. Like I said, I love my nieces and nephews to death. 

IMG_1172Day 9: The sunset. It was too beautiful to not take a picture of and it put me in a calm place. I felt two pictures for today were necessary. 


Day 10: Taza Chocolate (vanilla flavored). Chocolate is a vice of mine. A delicious vice.  IMG_1179
