My bucket is full :)

I like to think of  happiness like a bucket that gets full when I experience true bliss....
This month I have felt like my bucket is over flowing....and here's why:

My husband and I moved into our new house and it wasn't just that, but the loads of help and support we got from both our parents. My husband's parents painted and laid the flooring for our entire home and worked non stop for 5 days. They continue to come over and help get projects done. My parents have also been amazingly generous. They are constantly lending a hand to get the finishing touches for our new nest and my mom is great at doing small tasks that take up a lot of time. The support and love we've gotten from them have been overwhelmingly great and I don't know how to thank them! 

As the summer began in May, I began working 2 days a week at a new salon in Wailuku. It has been SO MUCH FUN! I am so grateful for meeting two new fabulous and kind friends. These girls are always telling me they love me, they appreciate me being there, and all I can say is NO, THANK YOU! It's been so much fun that I don't want it to end. I get that lump in my throat thinking about it. I am loving the time I spend there and the best part is I got two new friends out of the experience. Priceless!

This summer I also started a tutoring "company" with my friend Jessica. It has been so fun and rewarding. The kids who have joined our sessions have been sweet, focused, and a joy to work with. I am so thankful to Jessica for opening up her home and letting the tutoring sessions take place there. I feel like I have gotten to use my skills to help kids learn and also bond with Jessica as the summer rolled on. We have gotten to hangout more and more. Not to mention she has two VERY cute little boys who I love to hang with as well. 

I've noticed I have been relaxed and I think it's important for me to stop, notice, and aknoeledge that this is what happiness feels like for me. Or how I like to say by bucket being full. 
There's more on my horizon that is looking up as well. My brother and his family are coming to visit and stay as our first house guests! Also, I am focused and working on a healthy lifestyle to get some lbs. off and I've hired a personal trainer to help along the way- who I love. Not only that but, I got my mom to workout with us ans she's kicking butt! 

***Thank you to all my blog readers and followers! It's means a lot to me!***

Until next posting.... :)
