It feels a bit silly finding joy in basil. But I love the way it smells. And the way it tastes. I've been known to buy basil in the grocery story, put it in water on my kitchen counter - just so I can sniff it when I walk past. I grow it every year in my garden. I probably should try to grow it inside in the winter. I have oodles of recipes that use fresh basil to help me get my fix. It is definitely one of my favorite herbs. And today I picked more up at the store to adorn my counter. Basil love, basil joy!
A friend once told me that she tries to find joy in every day. But some weeks it's hard. A whole week without finding joy? That is so sad. I find joy in EVERY day. Or so I think. So I'm testing myself. I am challenging myself to find joy in every single day. Without fail. I will post joy every single day to prove it to myself, to inspire others. Just to see if I can do it. Small bits of joy. Large, monumental moments of joy. But joy is what you will find here.
