My Week's Joy - 2/1-2/7

Inspired by one of my favorite blogs I thought it would be a great idea to look back each week at those things that brought me the most joy. This is far too fitting for my blog to ignore the idea so I look forward to posting these each week!

  • Finding what "sparks joy" (affiliate) in my closet and ditching the rest. I haven't gone through anything except clothes and books so far but I already feel better knowing I've only kept what I love.
  • Fresh cinnamon bread and coffee as an afternoon treat? Yes please!
  • This boy and the dog. Our dog went to live with my inlaws last summer when we were in the middle of moving and she has been there ever since. She gets more attention and less wrestling time living there which for a dog of nearly 10 years is good. But oh boy is she loved by the kids. Seeing him cuddle and snuggle into her fluffy fur with a big ol' smile on his face just makes me beam.

What brought you joy this week?

I've got a passion for encouraging women to really love the life they have - crazy schedules, messy floors, toddler tantrums, and sloppy kisses. I want to inspire you to choose joy during the highs and during the lows. I want you to love the chaos but also find a way to manage it so you don't lose your beautiful mind in the process.
