It’s been too long, old friend. I have missed you, Jump For Joy. I have been busy and neglected our friendship. I want you to know that I am still grateful and mindful and giving love. I have not forgotten you. I was merely waylaid. But now I am returned…and all the more grateful and appreciative of you, my dear gratitude list. So let us tarry no longer. Let us dive back into our gratefulness, our friendship, and splash about in the universal awesomeness with wild abandon and joy. Here we go…
Jump for Joy:
The “C” Edition
* Summer’s not over yet, so make yourself a refreshing lavender cordial. It looks so delicious I’m tempted to climb right through the monitor and have a sip…of course it helps that I’m a sucker for all things purple. * Creating my life my way. * Circus themed everything! But a few weeks ago Broken Hearts caught my attention. How adorable are they? I am digging them oodles. * Will Braden’s cat haikus. I discovered these year ago and they still make me giggle. Care for a taste? Here you go:
oh, I scratched the couch
does that upset you? you mad?
you had me neutered
* New ideas and new chances to create happiness. * Spring…er…late summer cleaning. I believe your outer world is a direct reflection of your inner world…and vice versa. It feels so wonderful to have a place for everything and everything in its place! * Bursts of creativity. * Creepy things popping up in stores. Halloween is not far away and that means the stores are about to be overflowing with my favorite craft and home décor items: skulls, spiders, ghosts and all things spooky. I love, Love, LOVE it! * Dana Tanamachi’s time lapse video (posted below) featuring her amazing creation on a chalkboard. * Time with my family…it makes me feel so good. * My husband’s contagious laugh. It is, without a doubt, one of my favorite sounds in the universe and it puts a smile on my face every single time I hear it. * Snuggles & deep, profound conversations with Mischa the wonder cat. I know you think I’m joking, but I’m totally not. He is amazingly perceptive and great at figuring out just what everyone needs to feel good. I’m not crazy. I have witnesses. * All of you, you beautiful, amazing and brilliantly delightful darlings.
