♥ We have a dog!  A sweet two year old Chihuahua mix named Milo!

♥  I found Milo online and Troy and I went to meet him on Monday.  We waited in the visiting room and one of the staff at the shelter brought in Milo.  The staff member said it might take him a little bit to warm up to new people, but Milo jumped straight up to the bench.  He climbed on Troy’s lap and started licking his face.  It was love!

♥  I created writers this past year!  I miss them like crazy, but I love the emails I have been getting!  (Pictures were included with each email/story!)

Joy

“Joy is what happens to us when we allow ourselves to recognize how good things really are.”

― Marianne Williamson

Life can be overwhelming.  It is easy to forget that there is so much to be thankful for and so much that brings joy.  I try to take time each week to write down things that bring me joy in my writer’s notebook.

When I am having a rough day, it helps to stop and write down the positives.

When I am having a great day, it can only get better to put the joy into words in my notebook.  (Or on my blog!)

The weather on Friday was beautiful!  We went outside for writing workshop AND I wore flip flops!

My kid is a picky eater, so this was a huge compliment coming from him!

I love this quote!  I listened to this book earlier in the week and the line stuck with me.  I can be my own happy ending!
