A Collection of Happy Moments

Life has some big moments - milestone birthdays, your first kiss, big vacations, your wedding day, etc. Those are all hard to forget. I try hard to cherish the little moments. The best cup of coffee on a Sunday morning, my dogs getting their first long walk of the spring, being in Central Park when it's quiet and snowy, the first sock free day of the spring. Life is made out of those kinds of moments and they should be celebrated.

"A good life is a collection of happy moments." - Denis Waitley

Justin and I have started playing around with the gopro and our cell phone cameras to take small videos of daily life. Our goal is to do one each season - keep them short and sweet. We watched the clips we pulled together for winter last night and have a few things we'll try harder on in the future, but it was a fun little project.


Do you do something like this or avoid videos all together?

  1. I've never done anything like this- but I love it!! It's so cool to look back at all of them compiled together and remember that time.

    The pups look as excited as I do that there is finally sunshine and no snow!!

  2. I absolutely LOVE this idea! I might just have to follow suit. My cell phone camera takes such crappy videos, but maybe something is better than nothing? I really think the simplicity of most of these moments is so beautiful!

  3. I love this! I've been seeing a lot of them lately + it makes me think "I should make videos of more of the fun things!"

  6. I totally avoid videos, my voice is too nasal and my accent is audible to me. LOL.

    I like this a lot though and since a GoPro may be in our future, I could see it happening.

  8. This is SUCH a neat idea! I think these videos of life's small moments is a wonderful way for you to look back on your own life, but they're nice to share with others. It's just happy and inspiring to see all the cool moments of somebody's life.

  9. Oh my gosh, how cool!!! This is such a different way to capture fun memories instead of just scrolling through picture after picture on a new album someone made on Facebook! I love the pups laying in the sun by the window
