Milestones & celebrations

Oh hello, June (or, Always Joy)

Oh hello, June.

We’re already half-way done our time together yet I feel like we are just catching up.

There’s a lot going on around here these days.

After a busy and creatively fulfilling month of May you bring a lot with you, June.

You bring a few big milestones: 25 years working for my current employer, 6 years in our home and a 10th wedding anniversary. You bring possibility, decisions and action needed to redo our front yard after it was stripped bare by last year’s tornado. You bring our first camping trip of the season, two weeks off and lastly, a new addition to our family – a puppy.

Chives in bloom, pretty in pink. My garden makes me happy.

That’s a lot happening at once. Exciting, shifting, overwhelming and everything in between.

Add a 9-5 workload that’s been taking its toll for a few months and dang, I am one. tired. woman.

So please be gentle ‘k, June?

In return I will practice letting go, discernment, openness and rest. I welcome ease and flow.

And joy. Much joy.

Always joy.

In spirit of discovery,


Coming Soon: (Post) Birthday List Love

Last week I celebrated my birthday. I had grand intentions of launching a "It's my birthday and I want to share oodles of good stuff!" initiative here, but I never got to it.

If you've been with me for a while you might recall Four Weeks of 40 from my 40th birthday, or its sequel, my 41st Birthweek BONANZA.

It's a thing I like to do.


My birthday might have come and gone, but my desire to share good stuff lingers on so I'm just going to live outside the box and launch my celebration now!

I hereby declare my intention to share seven posts listing lots of good stuff over the next few weeks.

Why seven posts? Because I celebrated my 43rd birthday and four + three = seven. Why lists? Because I like lists. They're a fun way for me to round up good things and spread the joy.

I'll kick it off in the new month, April 1st. Neat & tidy.

So it's decided! Starting this Friday, there will be some LIST LOVE happening right here for YOU.

I even made a graphic, which makes it official:


Stay tuned...
