Cultivate Good Smells.

2011 Happiness Challenge: For those of you following the 2011 Happiness Project Challenge, to make 2011 a happier year -- and even if you haven’t officially signed up for the challenge -- welcome! This month’s theme is technically Memories, and last week’s resolution was to Make the most of your photographs, but I somehow got off my schedule, confusingly, so this week, I'm going back to March's theme of Body to pick up a resolution -- one of my favorites -- that never got posted.

This week’s resolution is to Cultivate good smells.
