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!

Gluttony

Gluttony

As a disclaimer: I don't think it's good to be gluttonous, nor would I say, necessarily, that I take joy in being gluttonous, but that's what happened today...and I rather enjoyed every moment of it.

We also had Peanut Butter Cup ice cream from the Lincoln Creamery... 

My devotional reading today said (paraphrased): Today is the only day we have. Yesterday is gone. Tomorrow is not guaranteed. Live fully in today.

And so, my friends, I embraced the donuts. I seized the day. I carpe'd the hot chocolate. Not every day can--or should-- be like this, but I'm grateful to have had an occasion to splurge.
