Hey there...Thanks for stopping by and welcome to my little hobby! I took the plunge at the end of 2015 into the instablog pool and it's certainly been an interesting experience. For someone who's a little insecure about putting myself out there, this can be pretty exposing. Posting pictures and writing out there for the world to potentially critique... thankfully people have been pretty nice so far. Thanks for that :). 

I get asked a lot, why 'leasing happiness'? Well it's pretty simple.

The dictionary defines happiness as a mental or emotional state of well-being defined by positive or pleasant emotions ranging from contentment to intense joy. A variety of biological, psychological, religious and philosophical approaches have striven to define happiness and identify its sources. Simply put, I believe that happiness can, in many ways, be leased in our everyday actions and experiences.

I've always tried to look for or make the 'happy' in a day or situation... whether it's wearing a great outfit to feel confident during what I know will be a tough or overall crappy day. ... jamming out to a favorite song in the car or at home to cheer myself up.... getting in a killer workout when I really would have preferred to stay in bed... planning trips to have something to look forward to... walking with my husband and furbaby around this amazing city... cooking or going out to a yummy meal... for me it's really the little things that can help make the difference to my overall mental state. 

Leasing happiness is a blog about the places and things that I enjoy. Life throws you curveballs every day so I believe in leasing moments of happiness to keep you going through it all. I hope you find a little from this too!
