It is hard to believe that I started my blog 11 months ago.  If you can’t tell, I am having a blast with it (and hope you enjoy it)!  I was speaking with a good friend about it a few weeks ago and I came to realization that this was my gratitude journal.  Each blog shows the things I am grateful for in my life.  I am VERY BLESSED!

As you can tell by my blog, I like to take pictures.  There are more pictures than words in blog.  I am not one necessarily to write many words, but would rather tell my story through pictures.  I have over 14,000 pictures on my computer.  I have learned that joy is brought to me by appreciating the little things.  That is why I take so many pictures and find joy in the little things in life.  Life is much more joyous when we appreciate the little things in life.

Here is a small list of the things I appreciate!


time with family/friends


trees blooming

trees in the fall


new places



sounds of the ocean

What are the things you appreciate?

It is not just about “Traveling with Laughter”, but LIVING with Laughter and JOY!!  Appreciate and take in all the things we can in life.  It is those things we need to remember, when we are having challenges.

  1. It’s so true isn’t it – the blog is a great way to just show appreciation for life. I think i would add good food and wine, rainy mornings, and sleeping in to your already excellent list!
