Flowers. It has been the biggest joy to have a farm share // CSA that allows me to pick a fresh bouquet of flowers every week. I cannot tell you the joy it brings. And my little potted plant garden. I love it! My succulents and african violets are still alive! (let’s just not talk about the lavender plant though okay?)
My puppy. His goofy love to me is amazing. His cuddles. His gentleness even though he’s a giant. His precious way of sleeping on his back propped up against the couch. This pup is, by far, one of the greatest joys – and definitely brings some of the heartiest laughs.
My library card. Books bring me the greatest joy. They’re like travels, communities, and an education all in one. I love the feel of a book in my hands. I love talking about books with friends (or strangers who happen upon me in a book store). Books have always been my safe harbor, and library cards are the best budget friendly way to find more!
Rain. I feel like some of the best things in my life have had rain. Rain has always symbolized growth, comfort, and reminders of love. Rain brings renewal in my life. I love the smell, the feel of a cool rain on hot summer days. The giant puddles to splash in come spring. The blustery days of fall that push people towards community events inside. The way a storm reminds me how small I am; humbling. I love the rain.
Travel. New places, new experiences, new cultures, and new perspectives. Rain is what renews me, books are what comfort, and travel is what brings me growth. There is no way I could see a new place and not be changed. Each new city I have encountered has taught me a different lesson. Each one I am so thankful for…
“And above all, watch with glittering eyes the whole world around you because the greatest secrets are always hidden in the most unlikely places. Those who don't believe in magic will never find it.” Roald Dahl
