|OK, so Guy about to pass out from blowing up all the balloons for Lizzy's party doesn't really seem like happiness....I don't think he was feeling too happy at this point either!!!:)|
And, what four year old little girl doesn't find happiness in her birthday party????
|the sweaty photographer....(I'll explain later)|
|and the REAL Happiness in the kitchen...she brings me A TON of happiness with her cooking!!!:)|
|the pinata actually worked!!!|
|tacos for the "fiesta" were a hit!:)|
|birthday girl not sure what to think when everyone was singing to her...|
|but, she was filled with happiness when she blew out her candle!|
On Sunday, we met a friend of Guy's at the Hotel Bon Voyage on V.I. I am always impressed at how deceiving places can look here. From the road, I really wasn't too sure what to think, but when we went inside, there was a beautiful courtyard and covered area and a bar....all the happiness I need!!:)

|how can one not be happy looking at these two???? ( sorry if I'm biased)|
whether it's in a filthy dirty , purple compound or
happiness can be found...you just have to look for it...
