hi there.

Welcome to my blog. I'm spending a year capturing happiness, and I invite you to come along as I journey toward a more joyful living. I also write about travel, food, and matters of the spirit. Hope you enjoy!

It's not every day that one thinks of an orange as a delicacy, but today I ate an orange and I considered it just that. 

Perhaps part of it is the anticipation. I was fantasizing about eating an orange since last Wednesday, a week ago, and I held off until tonight. (There's more to the story, but you'll just have to trust me. It was a long-awaited orange tasting.)

It was a sweet moment, and a memorable one.

And so we meet, my orange friend!

And so we meet, my orange friend!

Also, unrelated, when I arrived home at the end of the night, a friend I haven't talked to in months texted me out of the blue just to tell me she thought I was prettier than Anna Kendrick. 

Never underestimate the power of a kind word!

PS. The weather was overcast and gloomy and misty, but from the moment I woke I up, I was excited for the day. Waking up on the "right" side of the bed is a real thing. So, I am happy for every moment of today.
