The details of an upcoming move are swirling around in my mind. There are so many things that bombard our hearts and minds, so much that triggers anxiety and stress. We tend to forget, ignore, or, simply do not see the simple pleasures in life – the things that make us smile, chuckle. That is what this blog is about.
