The Happy Mama Movement Take One {#HappyMama}

Starting in 2014, I joined forces with a group of mamas that made it our goal in 2014 to bring the happy back.  That isn’t to say there wasn’t happy in 2013, or 2012 or any of the years before, but we wanted to CALL ATTENTION to the happy in 2014.  We wanted to band together as mamas and invite other mamas like YOU to join us in a campaign to be happy together and SHOW it.   I’d like to invite you to join me and them as we share moments that make us happy.  Link up your posts and let’s visit each other and enjoy each other’s happy!

I’m all for doing away with the negative and focusing on the positive.  So, every month in 2014, I’m going to post at least one picture of me and my family having a happy moment.  Now, I know that doesn’t seem like much, but to me, it’s a bunch.  Getting my family all together at the same time is almost impossible these days, so when it happens, Jeff and I do what we can do make the moments count.  At least we try.

 It’s all about the moment, and I love that each of these pictures show us enjoying……each other.  I hope you’ll join us and share your Happy Mama moments, too!

About Angie

Angie is a CRAFT dabbling, recipe making, WORD loving, sunshine hording, book DEVOURING, Mama to a lot! She's kind of in love with Instagram right now, so if you want her attention, go find here there. {smiling}


  1. You guys are so stinking adorable! I love the mission of getting a photo together. So HARD. It’s like when we are all together we are either asleep or in a hurry. Committing to take a photo together will slow things down a bit I bet!

  2. These are such great photos of the family! You can see the geniune happiness in everyone’s faces 🙂 xo

  3. Oh my – those happy sweet faces!

  4. I love seeing and hearing about happy families! Joy is something that should be a part of our everyday lives and focusing on it makes it easier to grasp. Yay for Happy Mamas!

  5. You have SUCH a gorgeous family, Angie! I am so happy to be on the #HappyMamas team with you! 🙂

  6. Angie, I think you need cut back on your designer handbag fetish. When your husband has to take a second job as a lumberjack to support your habit, it’s time to stop. 😉

    The girls look so grown up and you look so young, it’s like you’re all going to meet somewhere in the middle!

  7. You have such a lovely family Angie. I can’t get over how gorgeous each and everyone of your children are! Then again, look at their mom. 🙂

  8. I’m with everyone…your beautiful family just sparkles with love and joy! 🙂

  9. Your pictures make me happy. Everyone’s smiles make me happy. And you’ve inspired me to get my folks together next month (or before because it just might take until next month to happen (at least in a picture I’m willing to show people)).

  10. What a great idea. I’ve been on this ‘happy’ kick since the beginning of the year too, so it’s nice to see some other people out there in the blogosphere who’re making this a priority too.

    Can’t wait to read more.



  11. Oh look at the happy oozing from those photos. You make beautiful babies.

  12. I love that you are taking the opportunity to get the whole family! We have a hard time getting almost all of ours in a selfie…somebody needs longer arms!

  13. Nate, thanks for this. In my typical sarcastic manner, I made a commentary on Facebook about the repetitive phrases in modern worship songs. And this in context of broader thoughts I’ve had recently concerning ecclesiology and lack of attention to our corporate purpose and functioning. I am humbled by your thoughts and retonmemdacion.
