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 243 joy is the first day of school

4 Sep

{pictures}

Today was the official Facebook back-to-school photo montage. And, I have to say, I love it. I’m not so sure the nation’s youth will appreciate all of their first day of school photos being recorded for time and eternity though. I know I am not so proud of a few school photos of my own, mostly the years with big, thick glasses.

But, oh, the first day of school! SO many memories, so many new beginnings, so many adventures ahead. These are the landmarks that escape adulthood. Maybe that’s why it’s so fun to see the photos on Facebook, as it marks the official start of Fall and all that comes tumbling after.  

Joy is the first day of school, even when you’re not a kid.

More tomorrow…

Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 8 – DAY 241 :: joy is a three-day weekend

1 Sep
{celebrate summer}

Joy is a three-day weekend! Here’s to the last hurrah of summer: the warm months, the hot sun, the cool beach. The best part of summer’s end is all the beginning’s to come. Including my love! Justin and Brady should arrive sometime tomorrow from their coast to coast drive. And it will be the icing on the cake of this three-day weekend which has been a month in the works. 

So, bring on the end of summer! and the beginning of new adventures.
Hello Fall!

More tomorrow…

Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 8 – DAY 214 :: joy is no furniture

1 Aug
{for now}

I’m living in a furniture-less townhouse right now, and I have to say, I love it. It feels expansive, clean and wide open. It has me thinking about that which I need and that which I do not. It has me thinking about space and what it is that we fill it with (and why) and how that brings joy.

It also has me thinking about what really matters, what it is that we fill on the outside to fill up on the inside.

Sometimes joy is appreciating the less so that you can love the more.

More tomorrow…

Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 8 – DAY 186 :: fireworks

4 Jul
{joyful, fun and free}

As the fireworks burst outside my window I am popping with joy. How joyful it is to be free. How joyful it is to have fun. The best combination is fun and free, and free and fun.

Sometimes I think we forgot how to have fun and be free. But a day like today is a good reminder, Independence Day. I spent the day sorting through more stuff. Mostly clothing and shoes, my heart’s desires. I already dropped off six bags at the consignment store and have three more waiting to go.

Not because I don’t love them but because they no longer fit. Most are too small. A few are too big. But mostly, I have a sense that in order to fully walk into a new adventure you have to let go of the old ones.

Believe me, it’s hard for me to do. Clothing whispers to me. My clothing sends surges of memories into every cell of my being — what I wore, what I did,  what I ate, who I met, what happened… and what didn’t happen too. Clothing is a time capsule.

So, to me, it’s like gathering up a bunch of old friends and waving goodbye at port, as they ready to go onto new adventures in places I can only imagine… at the consignment store. And, yet, there is a sense of freedom in that.

It’s a sense of letting go. And letting in the new. It’s a freedom, really. One I’m proud to say I have, the ability to pick up my life and move it to a new place, a different state, a different port. What a beautiful freedom we have in this world.

Many adventures (and I’m sure new clothing) await!
What joy.

More tomorrow…

Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 8 – DAY 174 :: the clean truth

23 Jun
{fresh}

Ahhh, clean laundry. Right now, it’s giving me an abundance of joy. It’s also reminding me how simple and powerful a fresh, clean scent can be, especially on the weekend. Is there anything better than a clean load of laundry on a Saturday night? Okay…. maybe there is. But tonight, clean, fresh, folded laundry feels so, so good.

It’s the simple things. Thanks for the reminder dear, Joy.

More tomorrow…

Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 8 – DAY 170 :: laughter in your joy

19 Jun
{enjoy}

Find a little laughter in your joy

We just landed. Vacation over. There is nothing worse than the realization that vacation is over. Okay, maybe there are worse situations, but in the category of joy, this one is a buzzkill.

The saving grace of our flight home was the in-flight entertainment TV screens. Thank you Jet Blue. And TSA Pre-Check, too! Thank you Brent, the best travel agent I have ever used. And also, the only travel agent I have ever used. I didn’t know they still existed, travel agents. Extinct from the invasion of the internet booking sites, I thought they were a lost breed. It turns out they are alive and well… and amazing at their jobs too.

So tonight, dear Joy, thank you for taking care of us. From breezing through airport security lines to giggles and laughter on the plane.

More tomorrow…

Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 8 – DAY 139 :: a path of joy

17 May
{future forward}

I’m all about promises. I love promises. I keep my promise all year long. And, the best part is I never know where it will take me. It is a path that winds out before me and I can never quite see around the corner. But I can always look back and know exactly where I’ve been.

Life is a lot like that. We see the path we’ve been down so clearly. The secret, it seems, is to have that same amount of clarity for the path ahead. And then follow it.

Maybe that’s why I make so many promises, year after year. It’s like blazing a trail, setting a vision, holding to a dream and then following the path — wherever it takes me, even though I can never see the destination. 

This year, joy is taking me on a ride. Down a path. Into the future!
We’ll see where it goes…

Where are you going?

More tomorrow…

Lovemore,
Jamie

JAMIE’S BLOG – YEAR 8 – DAY 124 :: sunny days and longer nights

3 May
{oh joy}

The days are getting longer, the sun is getting brighter and the air feels lighter around here. Oh, joy!

Sunshine brings me so much joy. And joy can be so simple when we watch for the simple signs… like sunlight shining through the air.  

So simple. So true. So joyful. And…So much better when shared with someone you love.

More tomorrow…

Lovemore,
Jamie
