Tidbits of Joy

I’m going to be honest, right now, social media is not a space I find uplifting in any way, shape, or form. With everything feeling so uncertain these last few weeks, I felt compelled to share something slightly different with you for this blog post. 

I really wanted to find a way to bring joy back into my little corner of the interweb. So, I started to make a list. A list of things that make my heart happy. Things that bring warmth to my soul while calming the chaos of my mind. The little magical moments that encompass my life. This list is a part of me and I felt compelled to share it with you.
