What a Twit: Part II

I've done this before and I think it could make a nice quarterly feature on this blog. This is when I take my latest favourite tweets (in no particular order) and share them with you. I hope you find them inspirational, interesting, funny and/or entertaining. If you are on Twitter too, you may consider following some of these great tweeps!

10 simple joys

Recently "Chewbacca Mom" reminded the world that life is about the "simple joys". Think about it - more of  life is about the everyday moments than the sexy milestones. Though I've written a lot here about gratitude, this got me reflecting yet again on the simple joys I am thankful for. This is my list right now, though in no way complete.
1. Snuggling under a cozy duvet 2. That first sip of freshly brewed coffee in the morning 3. Hugging my partner tightly 4. Smiling to strangers and getting smiles back 5. Taking in a beautiful skyline view 6. Mastering a new skill that was unknown to me 7. Being awakened by the chirping birds outside my window each morning 8. Watching a scary movie and jumping with fright (this is a guilty pleasure, I'll admit) 9. Grocery shopping with my partner (yes I know, weird but true - we are talking simple!) 10. Camping adventures (s'mores included ;))
What are your simple joys?

Finding what speaks to you

For some time, my partner and I have been talking about devoting time together to a local cause we believe in. Fuelled by our own sense of gratitude and desire to make a small difference, we considered a few options. And though there are so many wonderful causes to choose from, nothing seemed a perfect match.  That is until we found The Furniture Bank.
The Furniture Bank is a Canadian non-profit dedicated to providing gently used household furnishings to families in need. With my new but growing background in design, and my partner's handyman skills, this was the cause we had been searching for.  Volunteers can assist clients with furniture selection, prepare furniture for delivery, provide marketing or administrative support, and/or repair furniture. If you'd like to say hello, come by and you'll find us in the furniture workshop giving pieces a second life.
So, if you're also considering volunteering for a cause, start by asking yourself what's important to you. Po…
