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!

Yes

Yes

I remember hearing about the person who said "Yes" to invitations as her New Year's resolution, and I felt a little like that today.  

One of my friends texted me because she was walking up college hill--did I have a reason to join her? 

Why, yes! I need vitamin D! 

(a real excuse? No. But I must mention the weather was BEAUTIFUL).  

After work my friend Jen and I went to a networking event. She asked if I wanted to leave and go some place...less crowded? 

Why yes! It would be more important to spend quality time catching up with a good friend than networking with strangers, at least for today. 

and once I got home, I saw there was a party in the backyard. My landlords invited me for champagne and snacks. Yes, please! 

It was a fun day of 1) saying yes and 2)having no regrets. 

 **note: I was asleep when I wrote this. I'm surprised that it still makes sense, but "having no regrets" is not the message I would have ended with. Just that there was joy in being spontaneous and spending time with people rather than sticking to the to-do list.
