If I had to rate the seasons from my favorite to my least favorite, Winter would come in last place. February is the coldest month where I live, therefore making February my least favorite month. 

Despite that, there is a lot I love about February. I love watching the snowfall, I love cozy evenings at home with my family, and I love drinking a ridiculous amount of hot chocolate. 

As the month comes to an end, I’d like to look back and reflect on some of my happiness highlights from February.

I hope you’ll take a moment with me and reflect on your past month and see the good.

February Happiness Highlights:

  • Listening to the sound of crunching leaves while taking a quiet walk in the woods.
  • Painting Valentine’s Day rocks with my girls and then hiding them at local parks.
  • Sledding!
  • Watching my girls play in the snow.
  • My weekly Vinyasa yoga class. 
  • Baking a batch of peanut butter blossom cookies and sharing them with my family.
  • Finding some time to work on my Mandala dot paintings.
  • Taking advantage of an unusually warm afternoon to go on a scooter ride with my oldest daughter.
  • Counting the birds in my yard with my girls and trying to identify as many as we can. In one sitting we spotted a Red-Bellied Woodpecker and 4 Cardinals, among the Sparrows, Finches, and Juncos.

Do you have a happiness highlight from February that you would like to share? I would love to hear something that made your month great!
