It’s not always the big picture that makes us the happiest. The little things throughout the day are the ones that really make us stop in our tracks and reflect on just how lucky we are. This is especially true for moms– whether you’re listening to your four year old tell a joke or sharing a quick snack together before he or she runs outside to play with friends, the little moments in life are what make us smile the most. You don’t have to move mountains to make life a little bit better. That’s why we’ve teamed up with Nutella in support of their message, Spread The Happy.
Happiness is best when it’s shared with others, so why not spread the love? We love to leave little bits of happy for our friends and family to find, especially in the home. As the saying goes, you should treat others the way you want to be treated. So if you start putting positive energy into your own home, it will reflect back to you and make it your ultimate happy place! For example, try writing cheery notes and sticking them in surprise places where you know your hubby or kids will look (in the fridge, on the bathroom mirror…).
As we challenge you to “pay it forward” and spread the happy throughout your own home, we’re sharing one of our favorite options: bringing your kiddos some delicious breakfast in bed! That’s where Nutella really shines. Simply spreading the topping on toast is enough to literally “spread” the love! Take a few minutes to add a touch of Nutella to your morning and put smiles on your kids’ faces just as much as your own. Your kids will fall in love with the sweet, chocolaty hazelnut flavor, and you can feel good about buying it!
Nutella’s unique taste is gluten-free, with no artificial colors or preservatives, and you can add your own tasty spins on it. Try topping the spread with fruit slices, or even spreading the Nutella on the toast in little heart shapes! As you take the time to lounge in bed and enjoy some morning snacks instead of running off in separate directions, you’ll savor those “mom moments” of pure, sweet happiness. And the unexpected morning surprise will lead to a day filled with more smiles, more happy, and more inspiration to pay it forward!
