We asked some of our favorite folks what makes them happy and why?

Jen Nhan | Lettering Artist

There’s a lot about life that makes me happy! From little things like watching the clouds float by on a warm spring day to meaningful moments like treating a friend or family member out to their favorite food to celebrate a recent win. These snippets remind me that life can be as simple or as complex as I make it. For me, being happy means I am fulfilled. And to be fulfilled means to be secure. I’m happy with where I am in life now. It took a lot of hard work and patience so I’m making the most of it by being grateful every day. I do my best to show appreciation for the people and things I love because they deserve nothing less!. Read more>>
