A year of finding joy

My 2010 resolution was to find a bit of joy every day. Each day, I thought about the things that bring me joy and posted them on Just Frances where you can share in my joyful things – one month at a time. Read my mid-point reflection here!

Joy \ˈjȯi\ (noun)

  1. This set-up threw me at first, but now I really like it. I can scroll and click at any photo I want without going to another page. Kudos!

    1. And you can just hover your mouse over an image, too. That way you can see the caption and a slightly larger photo preview without clicking.

      I thought of telling you that the change was coming, but I didn’t want to cause you anxiety, since I know you don’t like change!

      Glad you like it though! 🙂


      1. And I do just hover over the photo. I love it and now I look at more of the joy photos than I did before. Thank you. And, it’s only some change that I don’t like. Mostly because the change is bad for me.

  2. Every day I go into the gallery via finding joy. And every day I get a new smile because of the random photos that pop up. Thanks for keeping all the wonderful pictures posted. Today I got to see the gates of Stirling Castle. And later in the day, it was Schrodie. Thank you!!
