JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 8 – DAY 260 :: joy is hanging pictures

22 Sep



{on the wall} 

We have been unpacking, it seems, for weeks. Today we finally started to hang pictures – and it brings me so much joy. Photos, art, prints and more. They all carry memories of places we have lived, visited and dreams we have held.   

As the old saying goes, a picture is worth a thousand words… and heaps of joy.
More tomorrow… Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 8 – DAY 259 :: joy is friday night

21 Sep



{movie night} 

Happy Friday! Here’s to a weekend ahead. What better way to start than Friday Night Movie Night. Tonight we watched Blockers, a walk down prom memory lane. What joy it is to have the classic memories of high school. And what better joy it is to know you survived it all.  

Here’s to the joy of movies. 
More tomorrow… Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 8 – DAY 258 :: joy is lincoln logs

20 Sep


{play} 

Tonight I did something I haven’t done in decades: I built a log cabin with my own two hands — and Lincoln Logs. It was pure joy! I can still remember placing logs together with my little fingers in the playroom when I was so young. The little logs and the flat green slatted roof brought me so much joy then… and apparently now too. 

It’s amazing how much joy can come from building something. Even if it is made up of tiny little wooden logs that fall apart as soon as you finish. Joy may be fleeting but memories can last a lifetime. 

More tomorrow… Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 8 – DAY 257 :: joy is resting

19 Sep

{and playing} 

Sometimes joy is as simple as knowing when to play and when to rest. Tonight is a rest night. There will be more play days soon, but rest is on the agenda. 

Maybe the most joyous part is knowing the difference. 

More tomorrow… Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 8 – DAY 256 joy is good memories

18 Sep

{Pup}

Tonight at dinner, I was asked if I had pets. Of course, the answer is yes. I immediately found photos of Brady and then had to also show off a photo of Pup. Just that simple act reminded me how much JOY that dog brought to our lives. Any pet, really, has lasting effects and lingering affections that make up random acts of joyousness.

So many good times and good memories come from our pets.  What joy to be shared, to be savored and to be stored in memories forever.

More tomorrow…

Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 8 – DAY 255 :: joy is monday night

17 Sep
{new week}

It’s a Monday night. And the best part is that tomorrow is officially Tuesday morning. Mondays can be less joyful than Fridays, for sure.  So I found something that makes Monday better…

Puppy noses make almost everything better, and definitely more joyful.
More tomorrow…

Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 8 – DAY 254 joy is friendship

16 Sep
{spontaneous joy}

I’m on the redeye home. As I fly through the night, I have an acute awareness that JOY is teaching me a lesson in friendship and love. I took a later flight home in order to be in my circle of friendship (and music) and love even longer. Because it’s a gift in this lifetime to have friends who feel more like sisters. A grandoozy of a gift! 

I made the change to experience spontaneous joy. The kind that adds more, gives more, shares more and experiences more time with those I love. There really is no greater currency for joy than time.

So enjoy the time you’ve been given. And, love the ones you’ve got.

More tomorrow…

Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 8 – DAY 253 :: joy is love

15 Sep
{and waffles}

We just returned home from a music festival, waffles, and a lot of love. Tonight, Florence and the Machine lit up the big stage with more than bright lights and sweet songs. She lit up everything with love. Including the audience, asking everyone to hug a stranger. As she said, “I believe in love.”

My sentiment exactly. Love wins. But so do waffles.

Today I learned that joy can be found in a post-concert corner with a waffle shop. Add a little Nutella, strawberries, and bananas for pure joy, and you have the best way to wait for an UBER. 

My feet may be sore but my heart is full of love. Thank you, Florence (and waffles).

What joy.

More tomorrow…

Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 8 – DAY 252 :: joy is drinking wine with friends

15 Sep
{girls weekend}

Tonight, I am with “my girls.” We all flew to Denver to meet up in our annual gathering. It’s a touchstone in so many ways, there are so many years, tears, experiences, jobs, adventures and dreams we have seen each other through. So nothing brings me more joy than sitting on a porch drinking wine overlooking the Colorado night sky with my girls.  

Sometimes all you need is friends and wine all mixed together.
More tomorrow…

Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 8 – DAY 251 :: joy is being in the flow

13 Sep
{ahhhh}

I have been watching Miss Florence as she heads up the coast for the past two days. I have also been prepping for another Miss Florence (and the Machine) which I will fly off to see this weekend.

It makes me think about being in the flow with what you want. One Florence is amazing, the other is anticipated to be highly destructive. 

Maybe Joy is teaching me to choose my Florence wisely.

More tomorrow…

Lovemore,
Jamie
