Day 993: A snowy start to Thanksgiving day in one of my happy places. #100morehappydays #anotherhappyyear #anotherhappyday
Day 992: Happy Thanksgiving!! Happy Turkey Day!! I hope you all have a beautiful day with family, friends, and chosen family. I am thankful and happy for this day and all of you. #100morehappydays #anotherhappyyear #anotherhappyday
Day 991: Since we arrived in Minnesota, I have been waiting to see the bald eagle that likes to hang out in my in-laws' tree. I stepped outside, and there he was. I ran and got my new camera with my 300mm lens and captured him as he flew toward the open lake (which at this point isn't frozen like this portion of the lake). Super cool! #100morehappydays #anotherhappyyear #anotherhappyday
Day 990: Last night's sunset over North Long Lake. #100morehappydays #anotherhappyyear #anotherhappyday
Day 989: Another two-fer day. One of my favorite views, the winter version. Two-and-a-half years ago, straight line winds took out many of the trees here. While it looks different, it is still beautiful. #100morehappydays #anotherhappyyear #anotherhappyday
Day 988: Happiness is finally meeting my nephew, Jack! He will be two in January...how time flies. As you can tell, Jack's a happy guy. #100morehappydays #anotherhappyyear #anotherhappyday
Day 987: My happy for today is that I am thankful I don't have to sit in traffic like this everyday. I love big cities, including the Twin Cities, but this makes them less appealing. #100morehappydays #anotherhappyyear #anotherhappyday
Day 986: My Emma loved coming to Grandma's and Grandpaw's. This photo was from July 2015, the last time I was in Minnesota...and Emma's last time to be here. This place brings back wonderful memories of my sweet girl. I know she's with me here in spirit. As I approach my 1000th happy day, I count the happy days with Emma as some of the best. #100morehappydays
985: Back in Minnesota - land of 10,000 lakes, headwaters of the Mississippi, and birthplace of my wife. Looking forward to being with family this week. #100morehappydays #anotherhappyyear #anotherhappyday
Day 984: Ghost sign in Anadarko, Oklahoma. #100morehappydays #anotherhappyyear #anotherhappyday
Day 983: I love old buildings! They just don't make them like they used to, do they? This one is in Anadarko, Oklahoma. #100morehappydays #anotherhappyyear #anotherhappyday
Day 982: I always love an old neon sign. I saw this one in downtown Anadarko, Oklahoma yesterday. #100morehappydays #anotherhappyyear #anotherhappyday
Day 100 [Vol. 2]: “Credits” (I wonder, do people stay until the end for every credits? 🤔) #100MOREhappydays #100MOREryan #KeepMovingForward
Day 100 [Vol. 2] “If This Were A DC Comics Or Marvel Comics Title, Would It Actually Be Issue #200?”
.
And so here we are, another successful 100 Happy Days complete. “Volume one” had my story going solo and rediscovering what happiness is all around me. It got me out of my comfort zone to realize, there’s no such thing as a zone of comfort. YOU dictate where you want to be. You can be the change that helps one another do the same.
.
A stark contrast from what is “Volume two”. Here, three years later, my happiness is exponentially heightened with this amazing supporting cast whom I call my family. This journey seemed so much more challenging and yet, most of it happened within the confines of our own home. I tell you, if you work real hard, continue to better yourself over the “yesterday you”, stay positive, and thing do turn around! Sure, there’s moments, stretches of times that feel like it’s not going to happen. But what fun is that, thinking about the “what if’s”, when you can live in the “what now”.
.
All my life I’ve enjoyed doing what I can to inspire anyone I come in contact with. No matter the circumstance, event, moment, I wholeheartedly enjoyed helping others being happy and enjoying life. This time around, it’s these guys who have done that to me. They light my lamp when it gets dark. They ignite my vehicle when I’m broken down on the side of the road. They move me when at times, I’m tired. It is them, that keeps me motivated, to be able to better myself. I hope I’ve returned the favor, though I’m quite content knowing I can do so each and every day God keeps me on this Earth. And I thank God every day for them.

Day 99 [Vol. 2] “The Only Bad Thing About Hot Wings Is That When You Eat Them, They’re Gone.”
.
As it has been said, I tend to enjoy hot wings here and there (and everywhere, every time, but that’s...actually, that’s the truth), but what I’ve really enjoyed lately is homemade air-baked hot wings.
.
Jenny and I have created such an amazing concoction sauce (Honey Sriracha), which highly complementary to what @chefash14  and I came up with a while back (Buttery Ranch).
.
Hot wings, one of the four basic food groups.*
.
*(Ok, that isn’t the truth.)

Day 98 [Vol. 2] “Kyrie Love And The Cornucopia Emotions Of Turning Five Months! (Bet You’d Thought I’d Use A Turkey Pun, Eh? Well, Keep Reading Then!)”
.
From crawling, to holding herself up on her stomach, to holding her pacifier and taking it in & out of her mouth as she pleases, this 5 month old is growing faster than I could imagine. .
I definitely have to ‘gobble’ up all of these precious moments. She certainly leaves my heart ‘stuffed’ with joy, love, and happiness. I couldn’t be more ‘thankful’ that she’s in my life!
.
(See, I told you to keep reading!)

Day 979: A two-fer today...this is Blackie. He's the neighborhood lothorio that we had fixed recently. I guess it didn't bother him that much that we took away his manhood because now he's hanging out on our back patio. He also goes with us when we walk the dogs. I think he has adopted us. #100morehappydays #anotherhappyyear #anotherhappyday
