I think your personal definition of “happy” changes when you have a baby. It did for me anyway. Instead of happiness being 100% about myself, my happiness extends into the happiness of another human being, my sweet Charlee! The things that make me happy, have quite simply, simplified. I find joy in the little things. Charlee humbles me, and the things that used to make me happy don’t really do it for me as much anymore. I guess a good example would be how much a designer bag used to make me happy. I used to save up and buy bags. They would bring me so much joy! Want to know something really funny? I have’t bought a new bag in over a year! Why not? It doesn’t make me feel as happy as it used to. Instead, I find so much joy in buying Charlee new Stride Rites, or wearing matching outfits haha!
I was so excited when Found My Happy reached out to partner. Found My Happy is a new, feel-good apparel & accessories brand that lets you live, wear & express your happy! They have apparel for the whole family and their message is to spread happiness! “Always Happy Your Way Through Life” is the Found My Happy mantra because life is so much better when you do! How sweet is that?
They have so many cute options of matching tees including the ones we are wearing above! As a gift to you guys (because you all make me so happy!), we are offering a 20% off discount on any item on their site using the code “Let’s Jess Up.”
Make sure to head over to www.foundmyhappy.com to scoop these up! Check out my other faves below:
Finally, I thought I’d share a really random list of things that make me happy:
-When I go into Charlee’s room in the morning and she smiles so big
-When you catch the subway just in time and your morning commute goes seamlessly
