I love going out to the lake just to watch and listen to the waves. this is my favorite lighthouse.
114/366 :: Thursday 23 April 2020
front window daffodils.
115/366 :: Friday 24 April 2020
it was a little cooler in Algoma than I expected it to be, and the cemetery was also larger (and better organized) than I was expecting.
116/366 :: Saturday 25 April 2020
finally, new slippers.
117/366 :: Sunday 26 April 2020
more daffodils. these are in the backyard and they have finally all bloomed. there are white ones too, and some other flowers that I don't know what they're called but kind of smell like lilacs.
118/366 :: Monday 27 April 2020
don't worry, I'm also listening to the Harry Potter audiobooks and when this was taken, I was listening to Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix.
119/366 :: Tuesday 28 April 2020
mold-a-rama on my desk. I think it's smiling.
106/366 :: Wednesday 15 April 2020
new aloe leaf (?).
107/366 :: Thursday 16 April 2020
maybe I should actually look through those cookbooks and find things to make.
108/366 :: Friday 17 April 2020
another friendly reminder from TWLOHA.
109/366 :: Saturday 18 April 2020
I look at that curved branch towards the bottom of the apple tree every day and wonder why it grew that way.
110/366 :: Sunday 19 April 2020
the daffodils are getting ready to bloom.
111/366 :: Monday 20 April 2020
sometimes I go a few days without updating my happiness project journal, but it always makes me feel accomplished to have it back up to date. I've been writing in these for over seven years and I love looking back to see where I was in previous years.
112/366 :: Tuesday 21 April 2020
it's not super exciting to get a fresh toothbrush head in the mail, but quip has redesigned their packaging to use less, and that made me smile.
99/366 :: Wednesday 8 April 2020
100/366 :: Thursday 9 April 2020
honestly, I might not even have left the house this day. I've been trying to make sure to take the short drive down to the post office every few days to drop off mail (outside, in the alley, in the mailbox where I don't have to touch anything).
101/366 :: Friday 10 April 2020
my manager is an angel.
102/366 :: Saturday 11 April 2020
I'm guessing that this orchard doesn't still produce fruit to make any products and profits, but I could be wrong.
103/366 :: Sunday 12 April 2020
Easter baking, thanks to Aldi.
104/366 :: Monday 13 April 2020
this year's April snow was much milder than the past few years.
105/366 :: Tuesday 14 April 2020
getting ready to go grocery shopping.
92/366 :: Wednesday 1 April 2020
I'm used to the lavender scent, but I don't mind this seasonal pine.
93/366 :: Thursday 2 April 2020
I learned that it's harder than one would think to pick groceries online to pick up. yikes.
94/366 :: Friday 3 April 2020
pretty crocuses blooming. I think these are the first purple ones I've actually seen in person.
95/366 :: Saturday 4 April 2020
once again close friends with my NutriBullet.
96/366 :: Sunday 5 April 2020
sunshine mirror rainbows.
97/366 :: Monday 6 April 2020
the joy of finally having working earbuds again.
98/366 :: Tuesday 7 April 2020
it didn't stay attached to the wall for too long, which seems to be a commonality in this house.
85/366 :: Wednesday 25 March 2020
cleaning the house. I've been trying to keep doing things like laundry and cleaning on the days I normally had been just to help me remember what day it is.
86/366 :: Thursday 26 March 2020
I have been loving getting to watch Oliver Jeffers read his books while I'm eating lunch! He doesn't do them every weekday anymore, but they're all here on his website! he is one of my very favorite children's authors.
87/366 :: Friday 27 March 2020
I ordered a couple more books, so I had to move some things around on my bookshelf because I don't have enough room! so now all of my poetry books are on my nightstand in my bedroom.
88/366 :: Saturday 28 March 2020
89/366 :: Sunday 29 March 2020
I've had this water bottle for years and years but finally recently started to remember to use it when I'm driving, and it's definitely been one of my best friends the past few weeks so I don't have to go downstairs all the time to get water. also, I love these almonds.
90/366 :: Monday 30 March 2020
I am fascinated by these whenever I see them at cemeteries.
91/366 :: Tuesday 31 March 2020

seen on the way to/from a new-to-me cemetery in Casco.
79/366 :: Thursday 19 March 2020
two more cemeteries in Southern Door. my grandma taught me years ago that cemeteries are good places for walks because there usually aren't cars there. over the past few years, I've been doing a lot of volunteer photography for Find a Grave, and I've been enjoying piecing these families together even if they have no relation to me. it's also really interesting to see the different fonts, styles of headstones, and names and just wondering about these people...
80/366 :: Friday 20 March 2020
living room sunbeams. (TWLOHA coloring sheets here)
81/366 :: Saturday 21 March 2020
I've had Hulu for years and years because it was how I used to watch Cupcake Wars, but I have finally also gotten myself a Netflix account to watch Schitt's Creek and The Office because of sheltering in place.
82/366 :: Sunday 22 March 2020
when the sun comes out and melts the snow that fell, I shoot all the headstones at another cemetery.
83/366 :: Monday 23 March 2020
when your manager texts you to ask if you need anything from the grocery store because the state of Wisconsin is about to officially shelter in place. (I asked for some bananas and a sweet potato but she is an angel.) don't worry, we were six feet and a glass door apart, but I did get to say hi to her and little dog Toad.
84/366 :: Tuesday 24 March 2020
a little trip to Forestville because the sun was out, but it just turned to fog as I was turning off of 57. the sun came back as I was headed home, so I would like to know what that means.
71/366 :: Wednesday 11 March 2020
I love vintage postcards, and these by my front door make me smile.
72/366 :: Thursday 12 March 2020
73/366 :: Friday 13 March 2020
I broke the small glass bowl that I usually put small tomatoes in, so now I have to improvise until I'm able to find a suitable replacement bowl.
74/366 :: Saturday 14 March 2020
this month's Pipsticks delivery was full of lovely rainbows.
75/366 :: Sunday 15 March 2020
my to read list on Goodreads is always so full because of all of the beautiful picture books.
76/366 :: Monday 16 March 2020
but the funniest part was that they accidentally sent me toilet paper instead of the peppermint essential oil that I ordered along with some Mrs. Meyer's cleaning supplies.
77/366 :: Tuesday 17 March 2020
day one of social distancing. hot chocolate makes the days better.
64/366 :: Wednesday 4 March 2020
frozen sand at the lake.
65/366 :: Thursday 5 March 2020
this plant just won't stop growing.
66/366 :: Friday 6 March 2020
this was my reminder to respond to my incoming mail.
67/366 :: Saturday 7 March 2020
I'm working on perfecting this banana muffin recipe that I've been altering.
68/366 :: Sunday 8 March 2020
when your car decides it doesn't want to work, sometimes you get to drive a Jeep for a weekend because you're the spoiled daughter.
69/366 :: Monday 9 March 2020
Girl Scouts cookies time!
70/366 :: Tuesday 10 March 2020
the changing of seasons.
57/366 :: Wednesday 26 February 2020
I got this mug at Spark Haus Vintage (located inside of Kavarna Coffeehouse in Green Bay) and it's probably my favorite. although I never even have Carnation at home, it's usually Land O' Lakes. (:
58/366 :: Thursday 27 February 2020
she still stands.
59/366 :: Friday 28 February 2020
sometimes when you tell the universe what you're looking for, it'll appear.
60/366 :: Saturday 29 February 2020
a few new picture book arrivals from the library.
61/366 :: Sunday 1 March 2020
sometimes I can't help myself when I'm looking for notecards and there are too many cute options on clearance.
62/366 :: Monday 2 March 2020
plant watering day.
63/366 :: Tuesday 3 March 2020
I was going to make brownies, but I forgot to take the butter out of the freezer...
a photographer with the desire to hide behind the camera a little less and let the light shine through.
