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!

Word

I'm not able to explain my Joyful moment very well because there's a long backstory, and as it's 11:30pm and my eyes are closing, I would not do it justice. But I want to mark today as the day I received a word from God.  

Literally, it was one word. It's about who I am. This was an exercise Steve Wiens suggested readers do in his book Beginnings, but I never did it. I do hope one of these days I can explain everything better (and if you're really curious, feel free to ask me about it), but I was really moved. It was both exciting and weighty. Like, I have been called to live up to this word. 

The other highlights of the day were lunch with two beautiful women, being productive at work, and having Jenny-Sarah time.  

Also!!!!

I got a mysterious Amazon package today containing Cuisine Art chopping blades--which seems like the plot of a teenage horror movie except that on my wish list is a food processor, and this is an answered prayer! I'm hoping the rest of the appliance comes, or that would be weird  

(Turns out I have a good, good Father, which I already knew :) 

I'm so excited to see my parents soon!  

Look at how cool Sarah's wine glasses are! This is the inside. It looks like a paparouna.
