Grateful for my Busy May

Whew!  This month has been a whirlwind.  As I mentioned in my last post, this month was very busy for me.  The first weekend I went to a wedding (18 hours roundtrip on the road).  I’ve known the groom since high school and we were roommates for two years in college.  The second weekend me and my fiancee (yep, I’m engaged! A post on this is forthcoming) went to her brother’s graduation (10 hours round trip on the road).  The following weekend started our 6 day beach vacation (7 hours one way).  After the beach, we went straight to a conference where I was giving a presentation (8 and a half hours one way).  Then after a few days, came back home (9 hours one way).  So after a month filled with more than 52.5 hours on the road, you may be wondering at the title of this post.

This is a post about something that makes me, specifically, happy.  As I said in the post about beer, this may or may not make you happy.  But I don’t care, because it works for me and you have to find out what works for you.  I went camping two weekends ago, and it was a blast.  My girlfriend and I packed up the car and met up with one of my high school buddies and his future wife for a good old-fashioned camping trip.  A good time was had by all.

Mmmmm…. Beer

Yes and please!  A homebrewed porter.

Yes and please! A homebrewed porter.

Since the last post was sort of heavy, I thought I would switch it up and make this post a bit more fun.  Not only will I be doing posts where I offer advice about how you can level up your happiness, but I will also be talking about things that make me happy.  These may or may not be things that make you happy, but I don’t care because they work for me, and you should find what works for you.  So today’s topic is BEER.  Beer makes me happy. Let’s start with some beer quotes:
