  1. Leah says

    My happy place arrives when I am running! I feel free and my mind is clear! Plus it relieves my STRESS!

  2. Marian Knaust says

    I have lots of happy places. A spa would be one. The beach another. Time alone with hubby. Sweet times with kids and family and friends.

  3. says

    My “everyday” happy place is Twitter. My special happy place is the beach. Pretty much any beach will do. There’s something about the ocean that just puts everything in perspective.

  4. Rachel Harris says

    My happy place is when I pick up my boys from school. Being a mother is the best job ever. My dream job.

  5. Tammy G says

    My happy place is wherever I am with my family. I have been blessed by God with an amazing husband and amazing kids and I am very thankful!

  6. Amy Helmich says

    My Happy Place is in the house on Thursday mornings. The kids are at school and my girlfriends gather for coffee and Mama-talk.
    I look forward to it all week. :)

  7. Corina says

    My imaginary relaxing place is a walk on the beach or snorkeling in Hawaii. Looking at the colorful fish, only hearing the dampened quiet of the ocean, waving at the turtles. Yep, definitely a great place!

  8. Debbie S says

    I love going to spa, spending time on the beach or just relaxing with a good book but my all time happiest place is sitting on the couch with my kids around me watching a movie (everyone is quiet).

  9. Amy Smith says

    My happy place is in a comfy chair with a blanket sipping a hot coffee or a margarita (depending on the weather of course)!!! My favorite time to do this of course, is on a Saturday or a Sunday when my 2 year old is down for a nap! :)

  10. Kim S. says

    My happy place is an outdoor run. But, for the immediate moment I have a long list of funny moments that always make me smile! You’be gotta have laughter!

  11. Bridget says

    My happy place is in the shower at the end of the day when I finally made it through another day of motherhood. It’s the 15 minutes I get to myself to clear my head.

  12. Brittney says

    I try to make my daily activities part of my happy place! I am truly happy in my marriage, with my precious son, my job, my family and friends :) Life is good and God has blessed me beyond words!

  13. Amber Denny says

    My happy place! I have a few I am a stayat home mom I get about an hour to my self a day maybe!! My true happy place is right here with my babies!! My get away place is a nice warm beach with my hubby! I would also love to be pampered with a spa day as most stay at home moms know I am good to brush my hair everyday!! I have a beautiful 2year old girl and a sweet little 1 year old boy!!

  14. says

    I also dream of the beach and warm sunshine. My real life every day “happy place” is my bathtub with a cup of tea and a magazine though!

  15. Britney Schrag says

    I have never been to the spa! The only pedicure I’ve had was at the beauty school when I was 8 months pregnant….. Right now my happy place is a dark, quiet, empty bubble…. Floating above everything, moving along with the wind, no set course, direction, place I have to be……. Free!

  16. Jessica Alexander says

    My Happy Place is the bathtub with a book… just something to give my brain a get away. When I am feeling down about something I also think about the snuggles and kisses my 8 month old loves to give. :)

  17. Lori says

    I love being with my kids but a happy place after a long day (especially a snowy day like this one) is in front of the fireplace, with a soft blanket and a good book to read.

  18. Tonya Schein says

    I just try to go to a place that is quiet. I like thinking of a large room with window, beautiful landscape outside to look at (preferably spring) and a large oversized, overstuffed chair and ottoman with a few good magazines and books, a cup of good coffee and my ipod.

  19. Tiffany says

    My happy place is simply watching t.v. with my son and my husband. We like laughing and watching funny cartoons as a family.

  20. Karen says

    My happy is right after I finish running or walking! And Watching my little girls sleep! They always look like angels!

  21. Stacy says

    Lately, my happy places have been the times that I forget about the housework, and focus on my family. It’s amazing just to enjoy the moment and not worry about anything at all.

  22. Holly says

    One of my many happy places is when both my girls are nuggled up sleeping next to me and my husband. The sounds of their breathing is a lullaby to me :)

  23. Dawn Stanford says

    Oh, forgot to give you my “happy place”…Bible/quiet time in the morning and cup of coffee before anyone else is awake!

  24. Carrie Browning says

    My happy place is with my family, when we are all together for dinner, or having a game night, or I am having my grandson for a sleep over! I am so blessed. Now, that’s not to say I don’t love some time in my recliner, fireplace on, and a good Karen Kingsbury book!
    I am so very blessed!

  25. Andrea H. says

    My happy place is when my family is all gathered together and my 8 and almost 15 year old are interacting with each other – and they are happy! Those moments are becoming so rare – so they truly make me happy when they do happen!

  26. Stephanie Simpson says

    Definitely the beach (or maybe on the balcony of a cruise ship in the middle of the ocean) – That is the perfect escape and happy place for me but reality actually puts me in a buble bath listening to christian radio or reading scripture with no interruptions !!!

  27. Lindsay Chaney says

    Oh this Spa giveaway sounds fantastic! Thanks for having it. As crazy as it sounds, my “happy place” would be in my car by myself so I can crank up the tunes and just relax. Good luck to everyone!

  28. Rebecca says

    I find reading really helps calm any mental pressure. Just to get away from “life” for a few minutes to a couple hours, read a great book!

  29. Stephanie Truitt says

    Love being laughing and hanging out with my friends and family. There’s no place like the warmth of surrounding yourself with those that are special to you.

  30. MARY says


  31. Brande Phillips says

    My happy place is my daugther and I spending quality girl time together. We love going to the spa together and enjoying a relaxing day together.

  32. Heather Soukal says

    My happy place is a warm beach with my toes buried in the sand! The giggles of close friends and happy kids would make that beach just perfect!

  33. Misty says

    My happy place is the beach, to sit and soak up the sun and listen to the waves crashing. I can hear that if I’m at the spa, too! I can ask for soothing water cds.

  34. Ashley Nightengale says

    My “happy place” is when I get to be in cozy pjs and snuggled in bed watching old movies. This is the best I can do until I get a fireplace anyways.

  35. Amy says

    On any vacation or get away, I’m not hard to please take me to the city or country or a little between, I can find something to take a Picture of anywhere/ beauty is everywhere!

  36. Mendee says

    Italy…I was fortunate enough to be able to visit twice..I would love to go back. Makes me happy just thinking about it :-)

  37. Amy Hickman says

    I’m not really sure about this one- I don’t really go to a happy place, I just say a quick prayer sometimes!

  38. anh says

    in my mind, i’m singing and dancing the night away. looks like many of us are desperate for a spa getaway instead. good luck everyone.

  39. Heidi says

    I just think of all the wonderful memories we’ve had together as a family…and it makes it a happy place, wherever I am.

  40. says

    I have never had the chance for a getaway..My dream of getting away would be at a beach relaxing by myself with a V.C Andrews Novel. But I have three daughters and 3 granddaughters so I guess I will never get that chance for a dream getaway…Have never had the chance to feel that special getaway…But one of my daughters thought this would be a great way for me to possible get treated special…..Thanks

  41. April T says

    My happy place is a Sunday afternoon nap while football is on and warm enough weather that allows for open windows.

  42. Barbara DeMarais says

    No doubt, my happy place? Hawaii immediately comes to mind–no explanation needed…………

  43. Kim W says

    2 “happy places” that I like to go:
    Revisit our 2nd honeymoon in Hawaii las year (in my mind, until we can return), and to my comfy king-size bed. Sleep makes everything seem better, so a nice nap rests my mind, then I am better equipped to deal with the stress at hand.

  44. Rosemary says

    My happy place is sitting outside with my feet up in beautiful weather watching my kids play together. I love watching their friendship grow. Nothing else warms my heart more than that!

  45. Jane says

    My escape is to imagine that I am scuba diving in an aqua ocean with colorful coral and no jellyfish!

  46. Angie Shelton says

    My happy place is when the dishes are clean, laundry is folded and kids are safe, sound and asleep! I make myself a cup of “sleepy time” tea, relax in a hot bath and go to sleep with a smile on my face (most of the time) TOO BLESSED TO STAY STRESSED !!!

  47. Melissa says

    My happy place is knowing that my husband will be home soon and then sending the offending child to her room to wait…

  48. Carrie says

    My happy place (which I don’t get to go to often) is getting a pedicure with a friend. Adult conversations while getting pampered…ahhhh!

  49. says

    My happy place is on a floatie – either at the lake or in my parents’ backyard pool. Preferably with a sangria slushie in hand!

  50. Susan Beard says

    My happy place is running on the Skull Creek trail while pushing my kiddo in the jogging stroller.

  51. says

    I have to remember the cute moments of each child and usually try to use distraction during a meltdown and get a cute smile out of the little one. I also look forward to bedtime and indulging in one of my shows with a bowl of ice cream or favorite drink so I’ll just tell myself to look forward to that moment! Me Time!

  52. Kristen V says

    My happy place is water skiing first thing in the morning at Lake Tahoe! If I can’t be doing that…I love to be with my sweet boys snuggled up reading a good book or playing family bball!

  53. Beda Adams says

    When I’m driving in my car and I glance back in the mirror and see my 4 year old little girl just smiling at me!

  54. Carla Phillips says

    My happy place…..relaxing at home, watching a movie with my family. Of course, surrounded by a spotless house (that I didn’t clean) and having a beautiful meal (that I didn’t cook). Ahhhhhh…..

  55. Q Tyree says

    My happy place is watching my 5 year sleeping. I go into his room every morning and give him a kiss and just watch him sleep for a moment. This gets me in the right frame of mind to tackle another day of work, knowing I’m doing it for him and it puts a smile on my face.

  56. Brenda says

    My happy place would be in a hot tub or bubble bath just relaxing. I would love to try a spa though!

  64. Angie Coleman says

    My happy place is a beach- with no screaming kids. It can be simulated by a hot bath (I’m used to Gulf Coast beaches that are warm ;) and a good book. I might try that here in a few minutes… thanks girls! May you all find a moment to escape to your own private happy place today!! XO
