Let it snow , Let it snow, Let it Snow!

Wow, we got a ton of snow dumped on us, out in the Philadelphia countryside. We haven't had this much snow in years! I LOVE SNOW and even more I LOVE SNOW DAYS! What a fantastic excuse to play, drink cocoa, watch my dog cocoa hop like a bunny in the snow, make snow angels with my girls, watch them make igloos. The whole world, at least in my neighborhood, stops, we all slow down and look with wonder out the window. We venture outside, help each other out with shoveling and then later sled! Cuddles by the fireplace, fun movies, fondue, boy life is good. This has definitely been a happy day! What do you do on your snow days? If you don't get snow days, do you want one? Why or why not?

This blog is a new adventure for me Shawn, and for Happiest Days Designs (Shawn and Kevin). I feel like I'm in a period of reinvention. I've been ruminating on things in my life that are important: my family, art, my connection to spirit, and my livelihood. This lovely snow day has given me a little time to stop and think about how to re-order my life to reflect whats really important to me. How can I make shifts in my life to reflect the values I hold? How can I stop trying so hard and delight in just being, play, and celebrate my life. So, I'm thinking this blog might be a great place for me to chronicle the small happiness of my daily life, how it reflects into my art and our artistic dessert ware,and also check in and post the happiest days of those around me too! We will also post recipes and discount codes for our etsy store: www.happiestdaysdesigns.etsy.com.

We made these fantastic Sweetheart Valentine's mugs for V-day and weddings. They are so perfect for hot cocoa on a snow day. Kevvy and I will snuggle up while the girls watch a movie and I will ruminate on the perfection of the moment and hot chocolate!
