A successful day looks different to everyone but you can’t argue with happiness. If a day brings you simple happiness (and great coffee), I’d call that a big success.
Since sometimes reading is way too much work, this post is mainly pictures. You’re welcome.

Getting out for a great run helps start the day on the right foot. (Love Adidas running shoes! My favorite of all time, for sure.)
Everyone loves corn on the cob in summer. (A little extra butter, please!) It’s great to bond on the front step while peeling corn. A simple family tradition.
Kiddo #2 made this lovely flower out of the corn husks. She was very proud of it.
It’s always a success when the kids help out around the house without too much complaining. (Click here for a simple to do list for the kids to check off their chores. Surprisingly effective.)
The couch is my favorite spot to nap. Wrapping up in big cozy blankets on the couch is THE best. It’s a huge success when the kids stay quiet enough for me to get an afternoon power nap in.
Kiddo #1 loves to bake on her own with her Easy Bake oven. Can’t complain when she’s the one cleaning up and I get to taste test. And did you know you can get a recipe book for it? No more buying a million little mixes to make two bites of food. Genius, right?
What great way to end the day! Hanging with friends around the fire pit with a few drinks and smores puts a nice little happy bow on the day.
Sure, I feel really successful when I get a lot of work done but not all success is about work. Slowing down and finding the happy in the small things of life can really change your outlook.
What does a simply successful day look like in your life?
