Back on the rock

The girls and I are back on the rock for the summer and absolutely loving it. Jet lag is still brutal, as I write this blog at 4:30am, but we are doing fabulous and loving seeing our peeps. We are surrounded by love. It feels amazing. I cannot wait for Glenn to join us soon. We need to decompress and regroup in our home. It’s going to be a beautiful summer. 

There are many things I notice and appreciate when I return home. Drinking fresh, cool water from the tap is incredible. I can’t get enough of it. 

The air is so clear. Can’t get enough of that either. 

There is so much less tension all around me. No busyness and so much more calm. It doesn’t take the same work to calm my own energy. It’s nice to have a break from that. 

But the thing I notice most about being in Newfoundland is the people. My friends in Shanghai consider me to be a pretty funny person but what they don’t realize is that I’m on the low end of the Newfoundland funny spectrum. People here are so quick and every encounter I have with people, random and otherwise, involves busting a gut laughing. That has been so good for the soul. 

So here’s to a summer of busting a gut laughing. Looking forward to sharing some of our experiences with you all. 

Until next time!

Only joy, only love,

I am a Canadian from Newfoundland and Labrador who has done a lot of moving around and has some pretty amazing experiences. I currently live in St. John's, Newfoundland, Canada with the love of my life and partner in crime and our two beautiful and incredibly special daughters. (Totally biased but I'm cool with that). I started this blog because I wanted a space to share the people, places and things that bring me joy and give me a good laugh. Thanks for stopping by! Enjoy! Only joy, only love. Michelle xo
