Another month has whizzed by and here we are, November already! Our littlest celebrates her birthday this month so for us her birthday is the signal that Christmas is on the way. I’ve always loved that they celebrate Thanksgiving across the pond and with that in mind, Emily and I came up with an idea one day during one of our Skype sessions…She and her family like to focus on all the things they’re grateful for during November…we should do something like that! What about something we can involve the children in? What is important to us? And how do we make it about photos? (that one is most important!) So the Happy November Project was born!
We both loved the idea of celebrating all the positives for a month and going into the Christmas season with that feeling of contentment for the good things in our lives. I think that’s such a great thing to be teaching my children, too, to be thankful, grateful and happy (and it doesn’t hurt to be reminded of that myself!). And it’s true – happiness really is contagious! We have been sharing our photos this weekend over on Instagram (#happynovemberproject – come and take a look!) and it gave me such a boost to see what makes people happy.
Would you like to join us? It’s really simple. You can share a photo over on Instagram, share as many as you like actually! Just tag them #happynovemberproject so we can see them. We are @emilybealephoto and @shutterflies_uk over there if you want to come and find us. We will be sharing our favourite images each Friday during November on our blogs. We’re also pinning gorgeous photos from this time of year, happy quotes, happy photos and general November loveliness over on Pinterest. If you’d like to be added to the Happy November board, let Emily know. The more, the merrier!

I’m so happy to be part of this project and so happy to have Emily as a partner in crime. She really is an inspiring, talented and lovely lady (you can get to know her a little better in this post).
Happy November, folks! Bring on the happy!
