It is funny how certain things come into your life when you need them the most. While contemplating my blogging journey, I accidentally came upon the book Writing Motherhood by Lisa Garrigues. This book was exactly what I needed. An inspirational guide to help me on my journey of documenting my life as a mama. The book is filled with tons of writing exercises to jump start the writing process. A lot of her writing inspirations are things that I need to write about. Things I want to explore and remember. This book makes me happy and is a great companion to have next to my journal or should I say mother's notebook. Writing about motherhood is bringing me joy today.
Other things that are making me happy today:
- Playing "I Spy" with the little one.
- Watching Frasier re-runs. It has been a long time since I have laughed out loud.
- A Play date and lunch with friends
- Thunder storms and warm blankets
- Lots of baby smiles
