There is no such thing as the pursuit of happiness, only the discovery of joy.

"It's good to have money and the things that money can buy, but it's good to check up once in a while to make sure you haven't lost the things that money can't buy. Lorimer, George Claude

Yesterday was PURIM .
I wish I was with all my children and grandchildren.
I spent it with my friends instead.
And I was joyful.
Because that's what Purim is about.
Last year we had Purim at our house.
We had a grand time.
I've just gotten around to making a layout about it.
Brings back such fun memories.
Much more than you can see on this layout.
For that you need a complete video!

I don't necessarily enjoy scrapping lots of photos.
But sometimes you must.
It's not artsy.
But it still speaks to me.
Here's a preview of this years Purim.
I will be scrapping them at some point.
I doubt it will be before Pesach.
But y'never know...

...........and the best Mishloach Manos award goes to.......

Cake in a jar.
How cool is that!
Made by my one and only Daughter-in-law.
I know you're thinking I'm biased.
But you've got to admit.
This is a pretty great idea.
AND beautifully executed.
My second best is this one below.
From adorable parents of twin boys.
Theme being duck duck goose.
(As in Grey Goose!)

So there you are.
Another Purim gone.
I'm holding on hard to the Joy part.
Hope you do too!
Until next year...
