My name is Sandy and I’m Canadian living in the central coast area of California.
This online journal is meant as a way to capture moments in my days that bring peace, joy, beauty, fun, thoughtfulness, inspiration… It’s my hope that I’ll become even more aware of and more thankful for these blessings, grow quieter inside, and become more patient with myself and those closest to me.
“Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honorable, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.” ~Phillippians 4:8 (ASV)
