I was scrolling through my phone earlier to look for a specific photo when I stumbled on the photo above. I immediately laughed because I remember this day so vividly. Just like every morning, I ask Avery to get dressed for the day. The above is what she came out wearing. Yes, that’s a button down with a dress over it and a skirt over that. She went through a phase last year when she only wanted to wear skirts over her dresses. It was her “thing” and she believed in it. Avery loves fashion. She loves accessories. She loves to layer items. And she loves to put things together that you might not necessary think go together and then she puts it on and you’re like wow, that actually looks cute together. That’s what I thought about the outfit above. And she wore it with so much confidence.

She still does this every morning as she gets ready. I never doubt what she puts on nor do I tell her to change. I love this confidence she has in both herself and the choices that she makes in what she wears.

That’s what makes me happy.

Now tell me something good. Something that’s made you happy. It can be big, it can be small, just something that has put a smile on your face.
