Guest Post: My Happy Thought

Today I am excited to introduce you to a blogging friend of mine, and sponsor.
I love her blog theme and how she incorporates that positivity into everything.
I’ll save the rest of my comments for after …so without further ado:
Lauren, from My Happy Thought

Well hello Elisabeth’s Readers!

I was THRILLED when Elisabeth asked me to do a guest post for her.
Isnt she the cutest thing ever?
I love her positive thinking and fun/adventurous spirit!
I think we can all strive to be a little bit more like her.

I’d like to introduce myself, my name is Lauren and I blog over at My Happy Thought.
Some people don’t quite understand the meaning of my blog title.
Peter Pan is one of my ALL time favorite stories.
Something about it is so magical and really strikes a cord in my heart.
One of my favorite themes in the story is the fact that, in order to fly, all you need is to simply
think happy thoughts.
I found my  happy thought on New Years Eve 2008.
He had sandy colored hair, adorable dimples, a strong jawline and the most handsome freckles.
My heart literally skipped a beat.
We were inseparable and made new and everlasting happy thoughts every day.
I married my Prince on February 12, 2010.
Every day has been such an adventure and I wouldnt have it any other way.
We both get to add a New Happy Thought to our collection this coming May.
We are estatic to be parents.
(And a bit nervous!)


Something I always try to do, not only on my blog, but everyday, is count my blessings

This Christmas season, I have felt particularly grateful and I’d like to share some of those happy thoughts with you.
1} Of course my sweet husband, Gavin, is at the top of my list.
Christmas can be stressful, and being pregnant only amplifies that!
I am so thankful for his support through hard and difficult times.
Its so great knowing he is there to comfort me and support me.
2} My new baby!
I have had a pretty easy pregnancy so far so thank my lucky stars!
I am so glad little baby Gardner is healthy!
3} My awesome family.
I couldnt ask for a more fun and supportive family.
They are there to make me laugh, to make me smile.
To support me when times are rough and to have crazy adventures together
Those are my MAIN happy thoughts, but of course, there are TONS of little ones to be thankful for:
A full nights sleep
Graceful snowflakes
Smell of fresh pine trees
True love
Twinkle lights on trees
Warm oatmeal
Seat warmers
Apple cinnamon cherrios
Christmas decorations
Love letters
A clean house
Good hair days
Hats for bad hair days
Locksley (my horse)
Movie quotes
The Gospel
The color red
Wishing on a star
Funny dreams
New and old friends
I would love for you to swing by my blog and say hello and maybe tell me a few of YOUR happy thoughts!
Thanks again Elisabeth for the opportunity!
Oh and dont forget to…
Isn’t she great? 
Funny story for you, when I was little I was in love with Peter Pan. 
We lived in Tokyo, close to Disney. 
One day, at around age 3 I decided I needed to make my love official.
So when I got to see Peter Pan that day, I proposed.
Yes, I asked Peter Pan to marry me.
He told me he couldn’t go back to neverland if he got married. 
Somehow I survived the traumatic denial. 
But anyway – Lauren is great. And I love the reminder to think happy thoughts, to look for the best in things, and to always be positive. So go head over and check out her blog šŸ™‚ 
PS. What are some of your happy thoughts this week?
