Joy in the Ordinary


Sometimes when life is heavy and hard, it seems like there isn’t much joy to be found. There might not be huge joyful events happening, but there are little things to rejoice in. ๐Ÿ˜€ Everywhere!

We found this little frog while picnicking on Sunday. Turns out there were dozens of these little guys hopping around. [And apparently when frogs are scared, they wet themselves. Teehee!]


These yellow lilies are delighting me over and over. I was pretty sick last year when they bloomed, and didn’t remember what they even looked like. When we redid our flowerbeds, we decided to leave this plant and see what it was. Gorgeousness!! I’m so glad we left it. ๐Ÿ˜€


Might as well make your chicken pot pie look pretty, right? ๐Ÿ˜€


One of my hanging baskets… I’ve been so happy with how they’ve been growing and thriving.


Apples + red checkered cloth + wooden bowl.


More lilies + my purple butterfly bush.


Polka dotted cupcakes.


Stripey straws + mason jars. ๐Ÿ˜€


My favorite way to stay hydrated [mason jar] + favorite garden salad.


Adorable succulents from Marlin & Rhoda’s wedding.


Open your eyes. Joy is all around.
