Happy Place


I’m sure we all have a happy place. A special place where we feel secure and beautiful wherever our feet are planted. A place we call home. To me it’s nature. Its serenity takes my breath away, it allows me to have my thoughts run wild and sometimes I’m able to catch a deep breath. These are the moments I treasure the most. 

Find your safe spot and your happy place. Allow no one to penetrate your soul.  – Anonymous

When we bought our new home we knew we wanted to be surrounded by lakes and forest preserves. Away from the hustle and bustle of the city. Now don’t get me wrong I LOVE Chicago but I couldn’t live there anymore especially with children. I want my children to be able to run around in the nature, go fishing, enjoy hiking, etc. To me those are the kind of memories I want my children to foster. There’s a certain freedom that we have out here—something we  wouldn’t have in the city.

Where’s your happy place?

Some of my friends said that either the beach or their home are their happy places. They call these places a place where they can express themselves, discover themselves, and bond with others. I certainly couldn’t agree more with them. What or where is your happy place?!

    My happy place is where I feel comfortable, when it’s relaxing and where I can enjoy myself. My favourite places are by the water or up in the mountains and of course among my family. That dress looks very beautiful on you Vanessa!

    I understand the need to space that you feel comfortable in. Right now I am in love with my backyard. I go outside to read and write daily. I love your photos; the scenery is everything.

    Beach will be my happy place, it’s hard to feel sad when you’re enjoying the sun, sand, and sea. Also, of course, at home with my kids and hubby!

    My happy place is in the mountains. It’s strange because I didn’t grow up in a place with a lot of tall mountains but when I first visited the Dolomites in Northern Italy I immediately new that this was IT, my happy place ๐Ÿ™‚ They quite literally take my breath away. Just typing this made me a little happier inside ๐Ÿ™‚
