a book & bea.

I read this book called Happiness: The Art of Living with Peace, Confidence and Joy in 2 days while in Naples {it could most likely be finished in 1}.

The Author, Douglas A. Smith, teaches a class at DePauw on Happiness – I remember some friends taking it during our Freshmen year winter term & absolutely loving it.

The book {find it here} focuses on remembering the past with peace, anticipating the future with confidence, and living in the present with joy and exuberance. I highly recommend reading it – it’s quick & really gets you thinking about how you speak to your “inner voice”


It also spoke to me because you truly never know what life will bring. I’ve had my cousin, her husband & sweet baby Bea on my mind non-stop for the past 2+ weeks. They have been & are continuing to be extremely brave facing Bea’s challenges with her health with courage & grace.

Please keep Bea {Queen B!} in your thoughts & prayers {Make-Statements updates here} #BEAstrong. xx
