Joyful Book

Joyful Book

Happy Friday! Have you read this book Joyful? Designer Ingrid Fetell Lee explores how the seemingly mundane spaces and objects we interact with every day have surprising and powerful effects on our mood. It's completely up my alley but also a way to look at the world that gives us all hope and joy in the everyday. Ingrid's website, Aesthetics of Joy, is a beautiful and informative reference of various ways to find and incite joy throughout our lives…in schools, in hospitals, through art, in city streets, and more. See a few of my favorites that she's discovered below…

  1. Joy, I’ve been reading your blog since the very beginning – back when it was just blogs, no Pinterest, no Instagram – and through the years it’s always been a source of joyful inspiration for me. So it’s a real honor to see you share this book, my labor of love, with your community. Truly grateful for your kind words here, and for all that you do to create a more joyful world!
