Finding Happy Turns One + A Giveaway!


Finding Happy is officially ONE!

One year ago, I wrote my very first Finding Five post.  I didn’t know if anyone was going to read it or if it was going to change someone’s life, but I felt that God was calling me to come out of my comfort zone and share the way that I find happies with you.  And what a blessing it has been!  I want to genuinely say thank you to YOU for supporting me over the past year.  I can’t wait to see what the next one has in store!

I’m so excited to celebrate with you today!  I’m going to be sharing some of my favorite happies from this year (and yours too!) and then hosting a fun giveaway at the end!



I’ve talked about these earrings over and over again this year because they’re just so simple and fun!  They’re a great way to add a little something to an outfit when you just want a little pop.  I bought them in the berry color, but they come in seven different colors!


When I started Finding Happy, I very much felt God telling me that this was what He wanted me to do.  He placed it on my heart and I moved!  Is there something that’s on your heart today?  When you put aside your fear and let God move in your life, He shows up big!



One of YOUR favorite happies this year was this mascara!  I raved and raved about it because it’s honestly the best mascara I’ve ever used.  I’ve tried tons (and was even using three a day at one point) just to get some volume and this one does the trick on its own! You need this one in your life!



I’ve shared lots of fun happies this year, but some of my favorites were the trips that I took!  Read about our trip to the Pocono Mountains here or our New Year’s in New York here!



Remember when I got my t-shirt blanket from Project Repat?! Well, I’m teaming up with them today to give away a free twin size t-shirt blanket to one of YOU!

I had been wanting a t-shirt blanket for years but had been putting it off because they’re all so expensive.  Project Repat is so reasonable!  You order the size and fleece color you want, cut your shirts (this sounds scary but it was super easy with their video tutorials!) and ship them off!  Once they get your shirts, they’ll have your blanket back to you in 4-6 weeks and you’ll wonder how you ever lived without it 🙂

Thanks to Project Repat, one of you will win a free twin size t-shirt blanket!  All you’ll have to do is cut your shirts and ship them (this costs about $15 at the post office!).

To enter, follow the instructions on the giveaway here!  You’ll be asked to leave a comment below with one happy from your week and can earn additional entries by visiting Finding Happy’s Facebook page and subscribing to our email list!  You can find this on the side of your page (or at the bottom if you’re on your phone).  If you’ve already subscribed to the email list and/or liked the Facebook page, your extra entries will still count as long as you complete the comment portion 🙂

I am so excited to celebrate with you today!  The giveaway is open to U.S. residents and will close on Wednesday January 17th at 10:59pm CST.  The winner will be randomly chosen and announced here next Friday!

Thanks for celebrating Finding Happy’s birthday with me today!
