A Different Advent Calendar

Amelia Earhart observed, “A single act of kindness throws out roots in all directions, and the roots spring up and make new trees.”

Let the 31 Day Spreading HappYness Tour begin for Team TLC!!! Every day this month we will perform an act of kindness. This ties in with our Advent Calendar this year also … ditching the candy … something much more meaningful this year … A fancy scroll containing a special activity to celebrate the season and a HappYness Adventure mission!! I’m staying very flexible so this remains joyful and fun … If one of us chooses to do something else that’s just fine!

This will also eventually tie in with our HappYness Adventures way of life and website which will be about ALL things HappYness.
