I haven’t written about happiness here in a while. This particular moment in my life is the perfect time to change that. Happiness is a practice - you need to work at it every day, especially when life gets complicated. Right now, my life is complicated.

The forms are off! You can still see the rebar sticking out from the top of the foundation wall like we saw last time. Once we're ready for the second foundation wall pour, the rebar will end up covered.
