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!

Thinking of You

Thinking of You

Twice today I received messages from friends across the ocean (both Pacific and Atlantic)  to tell me I was missed and to send me photos. 

The first came from Petra (whose amazing photo made it to this joyful moment), who wanted to tell me I am missed by she and my parents. They were having dinner together, so she sent me a photo of the lovebirds. And, I mean...How cute are my mom and dad??

They've reached the point of matching Hawaiian florals.

Quote Petra: "I know you lost your heart in Greece..."

I am an open book! 

Which brings me to photo number two, the cover photo! I have the most amazing story of how I met the people who sent it to me, but because it's 1am, I will only say that we met at Archodissa last year by complete accident--they were there because I'd suggested it the year before and they hadn't made it then. So, we ran into each other, they said, "Are you Jenny?" (didn't happen a whole lot in Greece) , and we had the most amazing dinner together. 

And this year they've returned to Thassos, and of course, to Archodissa. "You introduced us to the magic" they said. They sent me a photo taken from the patio, my favorite view, and told me I am missed.  

All of this before I even had lunch! So much joy! 

I finished the evening by running 8 miles and walking back with Jeremy in order to have ice cream for dinner. Well. As an appetizer. We had pizza for dinner.  

Ahhhhh pizza and ice cream! The food of joyful people!
