I love it when this happens:
I get a sweet comment from Marta.
I visit Marta’s blog and recognize her handmade journals, which I have been admiring via other blogs. I think the neat connections end there.
I spend some time looking through Marta’s blog and shop and come across some wonderful quotes, one of which is by Annie Dillard, whose book The Writing Life inspired me when I first started writing.
The quote reminds me of a little notebook of quotes I used to keep in college.
I dig my little notebook out of the attic and find the exact same quote: How we spend our days is, of course, how we spend our lives.
Dillard’s words capture exactly why I started Good + Happy Day. Fifteen years of living and growing are neatly tied together and for a while my life makes sense the way a great book does.
