Sam's Bouffant

makes me happy.



This is, by far, my most favourite way that Sam wears her hair. And she knows it. And when spending time with me, she often endeavors to realize my preference for the 'Pile-High Ponytail,' especially if she's going... 'No Where,' afterwards.

Thanks Sammy.

Oh, and the fact that we just finished playing six exceptional games of volleyball, makes me...VERY HAPPY.

Playing Make Believe...

makes me happy.


Especially with Kevyn and Fitz, who both have very active and powerful imaginations.

In the above shot, we are preparing for an upcoming scene and getting in tune with our characters.
Kevyn is channeling Secret Agent Face Norris, whom you'll likely find face to face, with himself, in the mirror, ensuring every hair is in the correct place before takes off to save the world.
As Secret Agent Murdock Black, Fitz knows he'll have to channel patience, as his partner Face, is useless if even one strand of hair is out of place.
Playing Lacy Foxley never gets old for me, and here, once again, she's sure everything will work out...just fine.





Agent Black and Agent Norris show no fear, as they rush the charred tour bus. In search of the same briefcase as the Bitter Buttercups, the group who detonated the bus, the pair know they have their work cut out for them.



Ah, the mircofiche..she is safe. The poor Buttercups have been foiled again and left to their own vices to unearth the mystical message, 'Nagging...is never the way to keep a man around.'

Firstly...

...two years ago my husband, Kevyn, and I began the best life ever.com. Not exactly sure what it was, or what we were doing it truly became a labour of love, frustration, confusion and adulation. One thing we were always sure of was, we wanted a forum to knock around ideas about happiness. We both believe happiness is a choice, and we both have had the displeasure of meeting too many people who were choosing to live the unhappy life. Primed with the goal of metamorphosing one complainer at a time The Best Life Ever was spawned.

First we made videos, then we wanted to add photographs, later I wanted to do some writing. With every change we desired a phone call was needed to our trusty web guys asking them to make the site do this or have the site do that. Then one day it dawned on me, as delicately as a brick falling on my head, that what I was doing was BLOGGING and there were magnificent FREE sites out there that would allow ME to make my site do this or do that. Ah, the lessons we acquire through experience.

Here, a mere two years later and a few thousand dollars poorer, is where you will find me photographing, video making and writing all about what makes me, kevyn and anyone else, who bequeaths' me with their insight, happy!

For the most part I'm going to try and be all enlightened and tell you about people, places, experiences and moments that make me happy, but at times I may breakdown and write about things, like, from stores, that make me happy. Because one day, people may decide to send me free things, like they do to celebrities, in hopes that it will make me happy enough to write about it here, for all four of you to read about.

Bottom line, if at the end of the day, if I've made a few people smile and view the world through a pair of lightly tinted rose coloured glasses..that's all the compensation I'll ever need.

What makes me happy? Chillin' after a long day's work on the beach in Brazil.
