Joy Dare/Currently…

by melissakiefer

Joy Dare: worthwhile chats, amazing timing that is undeniably the work of God. Opportunities that are undeniably the work of God, little boys who randomly talk to me at the pool about books, George Washington hairstyles, hula hoops, beautiful views, water balloon tosses, husband/wife notes, blankets and air conditioning on the living room floor, the sweet owners of the store At Home in Galena, splashing in water, the love and resilience of my aunt and cousins    


Really liking: burt’s bees ultra-conditioning lip balm with kokum butter, Infusium shampoo and conditioner, my yellow and white lattice Anne Made clutch, goatmilk and honey lavender soap, pink Sharpies 
Listening:  What Do I Know of Holy Addison Road, If You Want Me To Ginny Owens, Come Thou Fount of Every Blessing (Tracy Simmon’s version), Be Thou My Vision, Beautiful Shore Jeremy Yowell
Watching: The Bachelorette, Dance Moms, Duck Dynasty (with Josh, of course)

Wearing: aviators, my new necklace from Savvy Scavengers, Lash Love mascara and brow and lash building serum (need a mary kay consultant? Mine is the lovely Gracie Bell), essie nail polish in sand tropez
Wanting: a big map of Maine, Kelly Rae Roberts’ pieces for my attic, some artwork by Emily Howard, Cynthia Francis, Alyssa Case, and Jessica Knackmuhs, a nice camera, some clarity and direction
Reading: Le-Win speeches (soo many speeches), The Wishing Window Well by former local Aubrey (Crist) Fogle, Proverbs 31 sunday school material
