Hi! I am Joie, and this blog is about the three things I love the most – Books, Adventures, and Celebrations.
I am no literary critic nor a bookworm. I read based on recommendations and whatever catches my eye on the shelves of a bookstore. However, it is no question that I love to read, and that book shopping is my kind of retail therapy.
When I was young, going to another country as a tourist, eating sushi, and speaking in another language was beyond my imagination. The travel bug and that spirit of adventure just wasn’t in our family (yet). Until I went on an exchange student program in another country. It was such a life-changing adventure. I’ve sought (and planned for) different adventures since then.
I believe that life should be celebrated, however cliche that must sound. And I believe that the mundane must be celebrated equally as the grand. Anyway, it is always the “little” and “ordinary” moments that keep me sane.
… So, I am starting this blog now that 2015 has started, in the hopes of sharing the great books, adventures, and celebrations in my life to others. 🙂
