I’m reminded through times of adverstiy and during the blur of every day activities, that one should remember to find joy in the little things. There is so much beauty and joy to be found in life, but it’s the little things that I often take for granted.
More blog posts on this topic to come! I’m on a mission to be acutely aware to find joy in the little things as life quickly travels forward.
Joy found in the patience of my children
Every year I corner my kids to take their school photo. This is usually taken during my busy time when I’m photographing other people’s beautiful children. Without fail, in the midst of a busy day I’ll announce to the kids to find some clean clothes, brush their hair, wipe the dinner crumbs, and be patient with me as I snap a few photos to be shared with friends and family. This year, my kids were on different haircut rotations, so their pictures were days apart as we rushed them in for a trim. My 8 year old son sat down in the barber chair and upon asking what we wanted for a haircut, in his best monotone voice he said, “Caesar cut please, #2 on the sides”.
Joy found at Etsy!
I’m completely addicted to Allison Strine’s jewelry, magnets, and cards. I’ve ordered several pendants and she is not only delightfully witty but also extremely talented.
I own this pendant.
Love, love, love her work.

Joy in music!
I’m addicted to Greg Laswell’s music. His soulful, beautiful music just touches my heart.
Download this: “This Woman’s Work” and “Comes and Goes (In Waves)”

Joy found in my fuzzy slippers
I was cursed blessed with some big feet. My moccasins rock. The first time my feet graced these moccasins they started dancing on their own. Every one should own a pair of moccasins. Your feet will thank you.
