Why I’m Happy now!

I’m currently tipping the scales at 45 years.  I have come to realize that life is a gift.  I am active, like to laugh, live in the lime light a bit and am always looking to see the brighter side of life, even when things seem a bit cloudy

Ya I’m Happy…… I am happily married to Jennifer, she’s extraordinary.  I’m a Dad to 2 boys, Annan and Malen, they’re a dynamic duo.  The two are 9 and 6 respectively and enjoy Snowboarding, Skateboarding, Baseball and just about any activity that includes high speed inside and out of our home.  They are truly cretive spirits, no TV in our home has brought art into their daily lives.  They are always making things: drawing, painting, sewing, kniting, building, creating.   They sell some things too

 My business, OOP makes me happy too.  Twenty Plus years as the CEO of FUN at OOP.  Not always easy thats for sure but I have maintained a smile on my face for much more than the better part of it all. 

Travel and adventure has been a big part of my life with OOP, Jennifer and now the boys.  We always enjoy getting out of Dodge to prospect for new artists and fresh new craft and fun for OOP.  We try to make it a family affair as much as possible.

Sedona AZ is gogeous. The craft we have found in the Southwest is funky cool

 We all currently live in The northwest corner of RI.  Just 30 minutes from the city I love, Providence.  At times it feels a million miles away.  Farm land, fields, streams, clean air and bright stars.  We live on nearly 90 acres of woodlands, it lends itself to constant exploration for a young family.  I happily find myself growing up in the country thanks to my two young boys.  Last spring we watched our river over take our yard as the boys white river rafted the driveway.  The summer brought the adventures of our damn building Beavers.  Fall brought hikes through the valley in search of the magic rock, which is starting to seem smaller as the Pines grow taller.  Finally, winter…Well winter brought snow, snow, more snow, plenty of No School Foster Glocester and all the fun that comes with it.

Snowbound for months 2011

A new start in 2011 as Festival Fete, an Art Festival Production company emerges.   I’m looking forward to shifting into over drive as we enter a new chapter in merriment, with the start of Festival Fete 

I hope you enjoy tuning into the many things that make me happy. 

THINKHAPPYNOW its infectious!
