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!

Couch surfers

Couch surfers

Today was an awesome day, and I'd like to take a moment to thank my friends who prayed for me because their prayers were answered. (And, also, thank the Lord!) I just felt so much better overall, and that was a huge blessing. 

But my JOY today came from hosting two couch surfers, Luis and Amber, who are biking from Florida to Maine. They arrived around 4pm today, and with the exception of 6-8pm (when I had a meeting), we got to hang out and swap stories, and it's been so fun having them here! 

I started the couch surfing enterprise during my travels overseas, and I was treated so kindly, I could do nothing but promise to pay it forward. I've taken a considerable break from hosting, but this experience reminded me how rewarding it can be to help travelers and allow them to have a great and comfortable time in the city that I love.
