Welcome and thanks for visiting my blog. I’m Dawn, a wife and mother of two teenagers and a miniature schnauzer. I occasionally share stories of my family life and my dog Fritz here on my blog. I have a degree in Journalism from The University of Kansas and have always had a love for writing and photography. I’m often found scribbling lists down on paper: goals, to do lists, books I want to read, home decorating projects and quotes.
I intentionally write about different topics on my blog because I don’t want to live in a vacuum. I love learning and trying new things and I encourage my readers to be curious and get “out of their box.” I’ve created a free ebook with 31 Challenges to Encourage Curiosity available to subscribers. You can download it here. I believe you are never too old to learn something new and that ordinary people can do extraordinary things. I also believe that kindness counts and even the smallest of gestures matters. See this post and this post as examples.
I’m a dreamer and passionate about collecting ideas. I have a sweet tooth, love to travel, the beach, crafts, decorating and books. A few of my favorite stores are Ann Taylor Loft, Target, Pottery Barn, Trader Joes and World Market. I share many of my favorite finds on my blog from my shopping and travel expeditions to favorite food finds and recipes. I love books and created a shop with some of my all time favorite books. I’m an Amazon affiliate and each book is linked to Amazon’s website. Should you decide to make a purchase I make a small commission which helps offset my blog costs. There is no additional cost to you.
I sometimes get caught up in the treadmill of life and overlook the simple abundance and possibilities which surround me. My intention for creating this blog is to find joy in the everyday and share my passions. Joy is something you feel from within and makes your heart smile. Outward circumstances can’t affect it unlike happiness. I hope you’ll join me on my journey and be inspired to live curiously.
Thanks for reading my Joyful Scribblings.
