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!

Pumpkin Hummus

Pumpkin Hummus

GUYS. I made my own pumpkin hummus today!!!!

I'd like to thank my father, who made the hummus possible thanks to his surprise food processor gift. Unfortunately, the cover photo is not mine. I pilfered it from this blogger whose recipe I replicated. Mine did not turn out quite so picturesque, but it was still a hit!

My Joyful Moment was having dinner with two of my writing group friends (and one of their significant other's). We had a nice time talking about ancient books and travels to Ireland and even this Joyful blog.

Sharing a meal together is always a win in my book.

please note: we'd already started eating it, so the garnish is gone.  But I used a fancy bowl!

Alternatively, my other joyful moment was actually writing FOR writer's group. This morning I put on my "creative essential oil" roller ball that my friend Sheri made for me, went into the sunlit bedroom, and wrote for a solid hour. I present next week at writing group, and I'm really excited for it! We shall see how it goes :)
