“Happiness depends upon ourselves.”


But No Man is an Island

It’s so true that happiness comes from within yourself, but none of us are happy all of the time. Life comes at us all hard and fast. Too often we as people hide our fears and our sorrows from everyone around us. We put up a facade, often because we feel like no one else would understand. Truth is if we were all to be more open about these things we would quickly find that everyone is facing or has faced a tough decision, a difficult situation or a rough patch.

We aren’t alone in trying desperately to figure out this whole happiness thing.

You aren’t alone!


“Do not set aside your happiness. Do not wait to be happy in the future. The best time to be happy is always now.”

-Roy T. Bennett


Follow Your Heart

We’ve all heard the saying follow your heart, right? For a long time it has been on my heart to share beauty with people. To bring light and joy into the daily lives of my friends (and even people I don’t know)…

And so was born this … movement… I hesitate to call it a movement because it’s just a personal project of mine based on a vision of connection. A vision of support.

So here’s how it works: I’m dedicating my time and creativity to sending you (yep, you!) a little batch of feel goods here and there. You connect with me on this website, join the group on Facebook, and follow along on Instagram to check out what I’m talking about and join the conversation. If you want to take it a step further you can join the mailing list (both email and snail mail) and get some extra ‘ish from me.

And it’s free. I’m not selling a program or a group. I want to share happiness. There might be some stuffs you can buy if I come up with something particularly creative and you want to spend your monies… but they’ll just be some extras.

Ooooooohhhhh! I’m so excited!!!! #ChaseYourHappy

“Those who are not looking for happiness are the most likely to find it, because those who are searching forget that the surest way to be happy is to seek happiness for others.”

– Martin Luther King Jr.

I am not a huge fan of giving out my information. To anyone. For any reason. So none of the information is required to be a part of this whole #chaseyourhappy family!

Want me to call you by your whole name? Give me your whole name! Want me to call you Honey Boo-Boo? Completely acceptable response!

You choose how you want me to send you stuff. Just want a mini dose of Happy? Enter just your phone number and I’ll send you a little something every now and again to lift your spirits. Looking for the full she-bang? I’ll send you emails, texts, even little surprises in the real mail here and there. You just have to give me the best way to get all this love and joy to you!

I’m asking for your birthday for a couple reasons: (1) I am not a saint and can have a potty mouth from time to time, I’d like to make sure I’m not cussing at the babies and (2) I totally want to celebrate and uplift you on the day that you became a part of this amazing world. Again, it’s not required… but I mean, why not?

And here is my promise to you: I will never, ever, ever take the information you give me and give, sell or otherwise barter it off to anyone else! It’s between you and me baby!

So go ahead and sign up! Or if you aren’t ready to be all up in the koolaid just go over and request to be added to my awesome group of peoples on Facebook. It’s all warm and fuzzy over there and then you’re only giving all your information to a major corporation. I kid (sort of). But we’d love to see you there too!

By the way… for those of you who don’t know me personally, this is me. With a pinecone. Just hanging out.

“May the sun bring you new energy by day, may the moon softly restore you by night, may the rain wash away your worries, may the breeze blow new strength into your being, may you walk gently thorugh the world and know it’s beauty all the days of your life.”
