Happy New Year!! {And something new}

Happy New Year!!I wish for you a happy, prosperous, joyful, funny, loving, exciting, relaxing, fun year!
I hope 2016 is all you are hoping for and more ❤

As per last year, I won’t be making NY resolutions … So I thought I’d do something a little different {Since last year’s Bucket List hasn’t been fulfilled I will keep working on that thru 2016 😉 } I’m really excited about this, so check it out :

2015 was a pretty shitty year for my family. I feel like I am a bit jaded and in a kind of grumpy funk. So I thought I might try to think positive and share one image that makes me happy each day.
It might be Quilt-y, Interior Design-y, Meme-y, Family oriented, or maybe even just plain day-to-day ordinary.
It may be one I’ve found on Facebook, Instagram, Pintrest etc … or it might be one of my own.
But it will make me feel good and it will be POSITIVE 🙂
I am going to call it three65positive.

I reserve the right to lace my babies thru it whenever the feeling suits me too! Cos they are freaking AWESOME little people and the most positive things in my life. I am SO proud of them.

I will be sharing my three65positive pictures on here, my facebook page, and Instagram. So please feel free to tag me (@manicmumdays) there and use #three65positive on Insta 🙂 I would love for you to share too! ❤

I will post my very first three65positive later on today so watch this space all my spaces! 😉
