Preparing for Joy

Flip through a journal at the end of the year, and you may find the difficult moments of your year may receive more pages than the good. But Herself wants to support all the beauty in your life with a little hack. This year Austin started keeping a different kind of journal- a corkboard one. There she finds a home for all the surprise cards, silly photos and notes-to-self that brought her joy over the year.  It's a visible reminder of the good. What if the best thing you can do to ensure delight in the New Year isn't through resolutions or goals but by preparing for joy- and giving yourself a place to remember it.
