JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 8 – DAY 274 :: joy is a bubble bath

9 Oct


{relaxation}


Sometimes you just need a good old fashioned bubble bath to relax into joy. Tonight, that was just the ticket! And my first bubble bath in our new place. A christening of sorts. 

Joy is teaching me that the small moments are just as big as the big ones. Even in the form of tiny bubbles. 

More tomorrow… Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 8 – DAY 274 :: joy is a new dog bed

7 Oct



{woof} 

It’s a big day around here. We bought Brady a new dog bed. Which means we threw out the old one. It’s bittersweet. Throwing away the old bed means throwing out the last vestige of our dear Pup. But replacing it with a new one brings Brady joy – his own bed and it’s even bigger! 

Sometimes I think joy is really about knowing the difference between two ends of a spectrum. In this case, it’s between memories and moving on, old beds and new beds, and of course, old smells and new smells. 

Joy is seeing both ends at the same time and staying totally present to the love both hold. 

Here’s to new smells! 

More tomorrow… Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 8 – DAY 273 :: joy is banana babies

6 Oct



{dark chocolate} 

It’s a dark chocolate sort of night over here. Good thing I have a supply of banana babies (dark chocolate of course)! 
They are only 130 calories and include no trans fat. And if you ask me… that’s a recipe for joy!

Happy Saturday night! 

More tomorrow… Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 8 – DAY 267 :: joy is #1

30 Sep

{the best}


Last night I wrote about this paint splash that Justin found on our wall. 


And tonight, I’m sharing what it reminds us of… or who it reminds us of!  It’s #1 Pup, of course. 

 

It seems like such a sign. As if Pup had a hand in helping us find a new home after we said goodbye to him. He couldn’t make the cross-country move with us, but somehow he made it here anyway. His marking splashed across a wall in the bathroom shower. It was just a mistake by the painters, but to us it’s another reason to believe we were meant to be here.

On my plane ride home yesterday I sat next to an 82-year-old man who just buried his wife. He was flying “home” without his love for the first time in 62-years. He told me that was okay because “as long as people are alive who remember her, she will always be around.”

It’s always hard to lose someone, anyone, even a pet. But this just reminds me that we never really lose anyone as long as they are in our hearts. And maybe even reflected on our walls. 
What joy.

More tomorrow… Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 8 – DAY 265 :: joy is jammies

27 Sep


{self care}

I find myself in my jammies in a hotel room. It feels like a self care night. And, let me say, it brings me great joy.  Joy is indeed, the little things. 

Here’s to the little things!

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 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 250 :: joy is early

12 Sep
{early bird}

If the early birds gets the worm, I wonder if she also gets more joy? Tomorrow is an early start for me, in order to see a friend before my day begins. And it brings me great joy! She is in Boston for a short bit before she sails off on the high seas (literally and physically).

Starting early will allow me to see her, and to experience great joy. So now I must rest and go to bed in order to be that early bird.

What can you do before your day begins to bring you more joy?

More tomorrow…

Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 8 – DAY 249 :: joy is rest

11 Sep
{crawling into bed}

As I crawl into my PJ’s and get ready to rest tonight, I am sitting here thinking that sometimes joy is as simple as crawling into bed at night. It’s a simple thing really. The routine. The rest. The relaxation. The end to the day. The dreamtime that awaits.

Joy is teaching me that sometimes it is the simple things that mean the most. And, it is our daily routines that make up our joyful lives.

Here’s to routines – the ones we look forward to, the ones that give us a respite, and the ones that create a sense of joy.

More tomorrow…

Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 8 – DAY 244 :: joy is good friends

5 Sep
{dinner}

Joy is having dinner with a good friend. Always. But tonight I experienced so much joy in catching up and laughing and sharing with my friend Christine. What a beautiful thing friendship is, especially over the years, miles, jobs, and adventures. 

There is no more beautiful and nourishing joy than sharing a meal, a few milestones and memories.
Savor the joy of life.

More tomorrow…

Lovemore,
Jamie
