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!

All the Things

All the Things

From 8am to 11pm, I can claim "all the things" as my joyful moments. I don't know how to choose.  

Key moments: 

--realizing my spin shoes were gone (!!) and praying someone turned them in at the gym, where I suspected I left them. Come to find out I was right, and someone did! 

--long walk and talk with Daniela + breakfast. And it was that good kind of conversation where you leave thinking, wow. I'm lucky to have friends like this. 

She's the one who uncovered the miracle of "portrait" feature on my phone

--beautiful, beautiful weather

--writing a Motif article in record time

--visiting my friend Livia in Medford where we reminisced about Greece and I got to congratulate her IN PERSON for the acceptance of her poems to be published in a chapbook!!!! 

--"half sandwich": peanut butter chip ice cream served with a warm chocolate chip cookie. This pushed me over the edge of happiness, I won't lie.  

This place is called Frozen Hoagies. You must go to there.

--a well-timed phone call from my parents (HI MOM AND DAD) and, earlier, from my friend who's leaving to Mexico tomorrow.  

--and all the things in between

(It's important to acknowledge and be thankful for those days when happiness abounds!)

ps. The cover photo is not applicable other than I saw it at Livia's house and it makes me laugh EVERY TIME.
