Let's get together in January to discuss The happiness project! It's a quick easy read and I think it's good inspiration for all of the new year goals we all have:) We will do an easy Sunday morning brunch:) I will have mimosas and crepes. Feel free to bring something to share (but not necessary) Also, please bring $5 to keep the meet up going....I always forget to ask, so if you remind me it's greatly appreciated!! :) Here is the synopsis:

Gretchen Rubin had an epiphany one rainy afternoon in the unlikeliest of places: a city bus. "The days are long, but the years are short," she realized. "Time is passing, and I'm not focusing enough on the things that really matter." In that moment, she decided to dedicate a year to her happiness project.

In this lively and compelling account, Rubin chronicles her adventures during the twelve months she spent test-driving the wisdom of the ages, current scientific research, and lessons from popular culture about how to be happier. Among other things, she found that novelty and challenge are powerful sources of happiness; that money can help buy happiness, when spent wisely; that outer order contributes to inner calm; and that the very smallest of changes can make the biggest difference.
