Joy Files: March 1st


Chasing Frida into the bedroom so she can jump up and under the quilt, where she stays for the afternoon, a small lump of cuteness purring with contentment.

Zoli standing tall on his hind legs, reaching his front paws onto my leg so I will stop what I’m doing and pick him up, holding him over my shoulder like a wee one.

Sautéed onions, roasted carrots, crusty baked bread, the sound of pouring wine. Kitchen love songs from my beloved.

Rich chocolate cupcakes with buttercream frosting.

Celebrating 10 years of deep and abiding love.

Heart friend connections. Walking and talking and listening and dreaming.

Singing along with a new season of The Voice.

Creating new art for my first issue of my Almanac.

Sun-drenched crocus welcoming March.
