❤{Choose Happy} ❤

There's so much chaos and noise in this life. It's super easy to get caught up in it. It's easy to feel weighted, heavy, just overall down. You have to choose happy. You have to make the choice to put it all away for a little bit and do something uplifting. We did that. We took the kids to the beach and just enjoyed the day. No pressures, no expectations, just hanging out, the four of us, our little family unit. We have to make the most of these short little lives. It's hard somedays, some days are just a flat out struggle, but as the saying goes, it's up to you to find happiness in each day. Choose  HAPPY❤ even when it's hard.

I created a layout about the beach.  I have so many great pictures of the day. I couldn't wait to scrap them. I used Bubblegum Pink, Lemonade Yellow, Aqua Blue and some awesome sequins...all of which you can pick up at the Etsy Store! 




Here's a close up of the fun twine details:



Check back tomorrow for even more fun inspiration!!
