Sunday Spotlight - 19th January 2014

This week, I’ve been loving…

My Happy Jar

I wrote a bit about this in my Happy Project post, but this week I decided to make myself a Happy Jar, for any nice memories I have of the coming year. So, I bought an empty jam jar and decorated it with labels and ribbon. The idea is that I will write down every time something nice happens or makes me happy, and drop it in the jar. Then, at the end of the year I will empty it out and read back through all the good things that have happened this year.

Friends and their children

Quite a few of my friends now have their own children, and I love meeting up with them. This week I caught up with a very good friend and her girls. We had a nice chat while one of them was at school and the other was asleep, then, after picking her oldest up from school, we all curled up on the couch and watched Cinderella. I feel blessed to be able to spend time with such special friends, watching their children grow with them.

Engagement news

I’ve waited quite late in the day to put up this post because I really wanted to include this last thing, but had to wait until family had been told. But now everyone has been told, so I can announce the engagement of my little brother and his girlfriend! I’m so happy for them – he proposed to her on her 21st Birthday and picked a beautiful ring. He’s the first of my siblings to get engaged, so it’s pretty special for the whole family.

What has grabbed your attention this week? I love hearing about people’s new discoveries and you may end up sharing something that makes it onto my list next week!
