Fill in the blank friday....


1.   If my house was on fire and I could only grab 3 things I would grab   my passport,my photo album and my laptop. by the way I'm only choosing inanimate objects...obviously I'd bring Justin and Abby!.

2.  A smell I really like is woodstoves,puppies/babies,bacon,baking bread,clean laundry and the maple butter candle scent i could go on but these are a few top scents.

3.  Something you might not know about me is   that i am a bit intimidated by the kitchen but i do really love trying new recipes and foods.

4.  Some of my favorite websites to putter about on are   I admit i tend to stick to my google reader and my blogs as always some dream shopping happens too :)

5.  This weekend I will    be heading over to my parent house with justin and checking in on the new cafe my dad started and searching out some clothes in my millions of boxes!

6. Nothing makes me happier than  Being able to spend time with justin not at work and indulging in a cheesy chick book and walking my dog...also an all time top is having a girls night but sadly it doesn't happen much since we all live in different states now.

7.  A bad habit I have is   not drinking enough water and not washing my hair often enough.

On Joy....and a girls day out at Soakology!


So this weekend the girls in the family somehow managed to find a way to pull off a girls spa day...mind you it involved me switching my flight home from my brothers and my cousin flying in from the west coast but we did it!!! All seven of us(moms and daughters...sister and cousins) went to a very cozy foot sanctuary called Soakology in portland maine and sipped tea and soaked our toes in big basins of hot water with oils and river rocks...it was so refreshing and relaxing!

To finally getting a girls day out!

On finding joy in all the right places....


I got inspired by wheremyheartresides new years resolution to find joy in our busy day to day juggle. This is not like some other blog series where you need to post on a specific thing or day but just a bit of motivation to remind ourselves to not miss out of the joy in our busy lives but to focus on seeing it in all the ups and downs. I hope that this reminder will motivate me to stress and worry less and to live a bit more for the smiles and laughs each day can bring to us.
