February challenge: counting joy

20130203-012105.jpg

February is here and as I’ve been thinking more about joy and what it looks like I was inspired by Anne Voskamp and her blog. For the month of February I will be counting joy each day as I look at the things around me that make me smile, laugh, encourage me as well as things I hope make other people smile (you!). Today marks the first day and I found many simple things throughout the day that brought me much joy…

I turned the page of my calendar at work to February which reminded me of some dear friends and a fun camping trip we went on this past summer…

I borrowed a few of these for a birthday party to weekend on groundhogs day, how fun!

I saw my friend perform in her last dance performance in State College (for now) before she moves next week…

  1. I love the fact that you have chosen to count joy for the month of February. What a great idea! I just discovered your blog this morning by doing a search on the word “joy” on WordPress. I also like the fact that you tend to focus your writing on positive things and for that reason I have chosen to follow your blog. Have fun counting your joy this month. You have inspired me to remember to do the same!
