Day of Happy

Today’s post is inspired by Joel Robison‘s 100 days of happy project on Instagram! He just completed it last Wednesday!¬†For this project, you take a photo of what you’re happy about in life for 100 days. While I’d love to participate in the project, I’m juggling this 365 project with work. Instead I’ve decided to blog today about things I’m happy about in my life!

A few months ago I bought Brooke Shaden‘s book “Inspiration in Photography” but I’m just starting to read it now! It’s so exciting to see an artist that I’ve watched grow on Flickr publish a book. It’s beautiful and I definitely recommend it!

After a couple weeks of procrastinating, I finally pinned maps onto the wall! It’s starting to feel homey in here!

With a gift card I received from my aunt for my birthday, I purchased Amanda Palmer’s upcoming book “The Art of Asking”. She’s a wonderful human-being and her music is fantastic. It’s incredible that she’s finally releasing a book!

Finally, Bath’s entire album “Obsidian” is incredible. I think I listened through this album 3 times today because I love it so much! Seriously Baths is an incredible artist!
Those are today’s moments of “happy” or “appreciation”.¬†Maybe in the future, after this 365 project, I’ll do a #100daysofhappy or something! It’s a wonderful project and I encourage you to check out the tag on Instagram!


11/31 Blogtober

P.S. Still happy about this:




Maps are a huge inspiration to me and today I hung up another 3 onto my walls. The one above my desk is a world map. The other side has one of Europe, one of Scandinavia, and one of the United States. Having them around me gets me pumped about travel and makes me remember some of the trips that I want to do. In the coming years I really want to go to Burning man (Nevada, USA) and do the Camino de Santiago (Northern Spain). Denmark is always high on my list, so I want to get out there again!

What are some things that get you pumped up? Have you been traveling through Europe or to Burning man? If so, let me know what you though of them or where you went!
