About

Hello! 🙂

My name is Jules Kendall and I’m a details woman. That doesn’t mean I’m happy all the time, despite what William Morris says. He’s simplifying the happiness concept just a bit. I’m happy more than I’m not, and that’s good enough for me.

Here are a few things that make me happy. I’ve limited the list to big things because saying that I’m happy when I find $5 in a pair freshly washed jeans is practically cheating and says nothing about me, the person who’s blog you’re taking time out of your day to read. I have yet to meet someone despondent over finding cash. I mean, honestly.

So, without further ado, here’s my “happy” list.

  • My husband and our two sons
  • Our cockatiel, Buttercup
  • Being in my 40s–seriously, best decade yet
  • Falling in love with a book
  • Clementine season
  • My volunteer work as a librarian
  • Turning kids on to reading
  • Being Catholic
Here are a few things that make me unhappy. Consider this a list of dislikes.
  • The practice of law (former life)
  • Body image struggles, my own included
  • Clutter and messes
  • Being late
  • Root beer–I can’t imagine any flavor more vulgar
This is my journal about the details–books, family, easygoing simplicity–nothing more and nothing less.
