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 more about it here!

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!

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! :)

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.

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!!
