I’ve been traveling into the city a lot lately. Some has been for work, while others are strictly for fun. I often get asked if I miss the city, and I’d be lying if I told you I didn’t. But I know it’s not right for our family right now. That’s why I cherish these trips that I get to have when I do go into the city. And it’s even better when I can bring the kids with me.

Last weekend I took Macks in with me so that we could spend some time with my sister. It was the first trip that Macks and I took on our own into the city and spent the night. He loves seeing the lights, the buses, the taxis, and the tall buildings. Although he doesn’t remember his short time we lived there, I know deep down, he’s still a city kid at heart.

I feel so fortunate to be able to live in a place where I really do feel like I have the best of both worlds. It’s pretty incredible.

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. You can participate by sharing a photo on Wednesday with the hashtag #WhyImHappyWednesday and tagging me @laurenjimeson or feel free to write it in the comments below. I do read them all and am happy to reply back on your good news! You can also join in the conversation on my Facebook page!
