Welcome to A Joyful Cottage
My passion is God first, and then living the life He has given me in such a way that it blesses others and glorifies Him. He has blessed me beyond anything I deserve. Although losing a spouse is messy, and the journey through grief may feel like a roller coaster ride in a never-ending dark tunnel, God has faithfully brought me to a place of peace and contentment.
This blog reflects my love for all things cottage: architecture, gardens, decor, food, hospitality and more. A Joyful Cottage celebrates living simply, being thankful for each day, and basking in the joy that results.
Thank you for visiting and allowing me to share a bit about myself. The best thing about blogging is meeting nice people like you. I hope you'll come back often.
“The real things haven't changed. It is still best to be honest and truthful; to make the most of what we have; to be happy with simple pleasures; and have courage when things go wrong.” ― Laura Ingalls Wilder
