About Us

welcome to our blog
an extreme close-up of
a couple of crazy kids
(Tara and Oby)
~in love~
with each other and our daughter and life

we named this blog endless jubilee
because that is how we have decided to live
we haven't perfected it, but we strive
to find joy
to make every single day special
to always love
it is ~habitual~ merriment

not happiness because everything goes our way
but happiness because day after day
that is what we choose
aristotle said
"we are what we repeatedly do
excellence then is not an act but a habit"
i would add that happiness is also a habit
it is a lifestyle
this blog follows our journey
as we choose to celebrate
each other
and each day


Write it on your heart that
~every day~
is the best day in the year.
~ Ralph Waldo Emerson


every single day is a reason to
have a ball
kick up your heels
~let loose~
make merry
(nerd alert: i used the thesaurus to make this list)


Cultivate an attitude of happiness.
Cultivate a spirit of optimism.
Walk with faith
rejoicing in the beauties of nature,
in the goodness of those you love,
in the testimony which you carry in your heart
concerning things divine.
~President Gordon B. Hinckley
