8 Photos of Happiness

Thank you to Chasing Dog Tales for nominating us to post 8 Photos of Happiness, created by Ariel’s Little Corner of the Internet.  It’s no secret that my family (including my greyhound) brings me the most joy and happiness.  It occurred to me, however, that you really don’t know my family.  Rather that write a long blog post, I’ll use this photo essay to show you:

family happiness

My family is the air that I breathe


…and the song that I sing.
(my daughter singing with Train in Atlantic City, NJ)


My family teaches me to laugh…

…be curious…

Happiness 8

…and sometimes just chill.


My family keeps me grounded…


…and reminds me not to take life so seriously,


…because every once in a while, you just need to share your crazy with someone,
and it might as well be your family.

  1. Great pictures and what a beautiful family you have! Your daughter got to sing with Train, Wow! How did that come about?? I totally agree about sharing your “crazy” with your family, haha. We do quite a bit of that around here too. 🙂

    It was so nice to learn a little more about you and your family, thanks for sharing your 8 photos of happiness with us!

    • Thanks, Elaine. It was actually quite cool how my daughter got to sing with Train. About two years ago, when they were touring, they asked people to post YouTube videos of them singing one of their songs, “Bruises”. From those videos, they picked someone to sing the duet with them onstage. My daughter posted her video the same day Train was in Philadelphia, and she was contacted and told that Pat loved her song, but they already picked someone for the Philadelphia show. They gave her three free tickets to Atlantic City, and asked her to sing then. The best part? It was on my birthday – best birthday present ever! <3

  2. These are awesome pics! We saw Train front row up in Syracuse and they were amazing. So awesome that your daughter actually got to sing with him! The story is awesome as well, she must be one amazing singer. Fav pic has to be the headshot of Luna looking right down into the camera, so cute! 🙂

  3. Thanks for the nomination Christina! Love your happy photos 🙂 I’m going to Google who Train is, I don’t think he’s famous in New Zealand! Looks like a very special moment for your daughter 🙂

    I hope to get a post done today … but don’t hold your breathe waiting!
