Share Your Good Life Story

We all have a Good Life story. How we arrived at our story is different. Regardless of the path she takes, I want my daughter Gates to grow up being able to recognize and enjoy "The Good Life."
Share Your Good Life Story
With the assistance of my sister, a pre-school and primary educator with over 15 years of experience, I'll be writing and illustrating a children's book, Finding the Good Life. In it, a little girl runs away from home thinking the animals have better lives. On her adventure, she goes from animal to animal asking about their good lives, realizing she has The Good Life back at home.
Rather than let the media define what is and what isn't a Good Life for Gates, I'm taking it to the streets so to speak. I'm asking you to share your definitions and examples of "The Good Life" with me.
I want to hear your Good Life story.
I want to include your story in a children's book.

Interested in contributing? Throughout 2013, I'll be collecting people's definitions and examples of "The Good Life." To share your Good Life story, you can complete the form below, comment, post to the blog's Facebook page, or send me an email. Remember that this is a children's book, so definitions need to be family friendly.
My sister and I will sort through the stories and retell our favorites in words applicable to children from age four to six. We'll be sharing our progress here on the blog as we go and look forward to hearing your Good Life story.
Thank you for taking the time to share your Good Life story.
Ciao Bella!
