Share the joy link up #12
“Don’t cry because it’s over, smile because it happened” – Dr Seuss
We packed, we packed and we packed some more and then it was finally time to leave Bod Towers and drive to our new home. Our dream home. The home that, I hope, we never move from again.
As I drove away towards The Barn (yep, it has to have a nickname!) the sadness I felt melted away as I remembered all the amazing memories we’d made in our old house and looked forward to the new ones still to come. This quote from Dr Seuss fitted my mood perfectly. We’re still unpacking boxes – and I apologise for not replying to all your lovely comments guys, it’s been chaos here! – but we’ve already toasted our arrival with something suitably bubbly in front of our new fireplace… of course!
We’re here and we’re in, so let the happy memory-making begin.
Right, on to the link up!
Thank you so much to everyone that joined in last week – this linky is really going from strength to strength! I’m loving reading all your joyful posts and I hope that sharing the joy raises your spirits too.
Don’t forget that all genres are welcome here – new posts or old favourites. Posts that might have made you laugh out loud, opened your heart, raised your spirits or just made you smile!
Sharing my joy
Each week, I’ll pick a favorite post and feature it on the following week’s Share the Joy link up (I’ve also made a where you’ll find all my favorites in one place).
Last week I felt so uplifted and inspired reading a two part post from Tinuke at Circus Mums about why quitting her dream job left her happier – you’ll love it! And I also want to say a huge thank you to Eline from Pasta and Patchwork who did such a great job of co-hosting with me last week (if you’d like to be a future guest host just leave me a note in the comments below.)
This week I’m sharing a crowdsourced post with some wonderful top tips for moving house from 15 fabulous bloggers (what else!) and a powerful and emotional parenting post about creating a positive parenting template from an author who asked to remain anonymous but still wanted to share her story in the home that it will help others – it is quite possibly the perfect Share the Joy post!
Let’s Share the Joy!
1) Link up posts that have brought you JOY – Writing them might have made you laugh out loud, opened your heart, raised your spirits or just made you smile. All genres are welcome, new posts or old favourites and as many links as you like!
