I just like to smile, smiling's my favorite!

 It's already the fourth day of Crumpets Nail Tarts 31 Day Challenge! I can't believe how fast this month is going already. I suppose it helps I've been off work since before the new year!  I'm not really looking forward to going back tomorrow but...I'm sure once I get  back into the groove of things it will be fine.  Today the theme of the challenge is happiness.  This past year was a really rough one for me and it really dampened my spirits about life in general. I'll be honest and say I'm not really an optimist; I consider myself more of a realist though I'm definitely a fighter and a survivor.  I can make it through anything and everything without breaking down but it does take a toll.  So this year I'm trying to be a little more positive.  Mixed in with all the downs last year were a few little pieces of happiness and that is what I'm choosing to focus on moving forward.  There's always going to be bad times but it's the good ones that make it all worth it.  I took two trips to beaches last year; one with my best friend and another with my husband.  Trips taken with my best friend are ALWAYS an adventure! We have a lot of fun together but we also always end up in the oddest situations!  Then my husband and I checked one of the bucket list and visited Maui, Hawaii.  Both trips were so much fun and really the brightest bright spots in 2014, so I wanted to focus on a beach theme.  This isn't exactly where I started off going with this design but it turned out to be one of my favorite designs ever!  I hope you all enjoy it! :)
