What's bringing you joy?


  1. Some lovely joys Anne especially the ice cream sandwich! Have a lovely week.

  2. Wonderful!
    The first grill dinner. Yes, we enjoyed one too.
    Have a blessed week.

    1. :)

      Thanks, Carla.

      Hope your week was a good one, too!

  3. We're having lovely spring weather too (Sunday was too warm, we're back to normal temps today). Flowers are popping up out of the ground: crocus blooming and daffodils any day now. So happy to see green in the landscape! Happy St. Patrick's day to you!

    1. Jealous of your flowers! My daffodils (planted last fall) are nowhere to be seen (even before the ground was covered back up with snow). Ah well, spring will eventually be here for real!

  4. *sigh*
    We are still in the grip of winter here in Vermont, but this post reminds me that spring will come eventually. Thanks for that. xo

    1. Well, we got ours, too. Snow in March (and April) are to be expected, I guess.

      Here's to the eventual arrival of spring!

  5. Beautiful and very mindful list! Thank you for sharing

  6. Right now what's bringing me joy is the pint of Ben & Jerry's that's waiting for me in the freezer after a very stressful day. ;)
    Also? That adorable strawberry at the bottom of this page that you painted. It makes me smile every time!

    1. Sounds perfect. :) (though sorry about the stressful day!).

      And thank you! That strawberry makes me smile, too.
