guest post: 28 joys


I'm very excited to share a quest post from Katie Morroni who is sharing 28 joys from her 28th birthday.  Katie and I went to high school together in St. Louis and roomed together during our trip to Italy our freshmen year.  We go way back!  Katie made a great resolution to write down 28 joys every day for the next year.  So happy to share the start of her challenge here!  You can follow Katie on twitter here.  

28 joys on my 28th birthday

mountain views… familiar friends who know you and allow you to grow… unexpected new friendships… the stillness and contentment of solitude… orange sunsets… the smell of old books… hot breakfast… cold water down a sore throat… my husband's soft kisses… the smiles of strangers passing on the street… friendly flowers… tasting something new… unexpected phone calls… picnics… a friend who backs you up… the comfort of a sweet dog drawing near… handing over anxieties to the Sacred Heart… public libraries more than 100 years old… mini-champagne cans… taking 20,000 steps in one day… public parks of all sizes, especially the tiny ones… the warmth and weight of a light blanket on a summer day… my husband's smile… unexpected gifts… affirmations of joy and peace… little, simple luxuries… planted roses… feeling encircled in joy and the warmth of many positive thoughts
