I stared at the the pile of journals in my hands. Over the years I had been given many  notebooks, journals, and diaries. Most of them were not even filled half-way, while others did not have one scratch of a pen or a pencil on it’s paper. I had always wanted to keep a steady journal, but I always drifted off after starting a new one. Maybe it was all the writing required, or all the mistakes I made in my writing that made me quit so many journals. I wanted to find a way to record my daily life, then I thought of an open journal.
This blog is a dedicated space for me to share the beauty of life and everyday musings.

words that are simple and honest
evergreen trees
reading (lots of it)
being silly
going barefoot
eating cookie dough
the color blue
summer living
genuine laughter
cups of tea (preferably peppermint)
capturing small moments
impromptu get-together with friends
“I wish to live without hate, whim, jealousy, envy, and fear. I wish to be simple, honest, frank, natural . . to face any obstacle and meet every difficulty unabashed and unafraid.” ― Elbert Hubbard


    1. I would check out servers such as Blogger and WordPress. Find which server would work best for what you want in your blog. They are both free and great. I used to be on Blogger, but I wanted a change so I moved to WordPress.
