the joy of nothing.

This month I am linking up with Kiki and Katie for the Circle as we talk about the story behind our blog name!

I have started this blog a few times, it was called "The Wife Adventures" and after a few posts, I realized there isn't much adventure going on... so I stopped blogging. Then last year I really wanted to get back into it, and make it stick! I didn't want to keep the name though, it just didn't fit.

And then I remembered my favorite song at the time.

The found life. It's all about finding the joy of nothing. The joy of the everyday, the mundane. And not just keeping your eyes open for it, but searching it, pursuing, it.

I'm not a good writer and I don't have deep thoughtful insights to give you, but I try to be present in my everyday and take joy in the nothings that happen all around. Please don't think I don't take joy in the big things and the everythings, because I do! I just want to remind myself that those nothings are still important and I want to find joy in them in all areas of my life.

I hope that you can find joy here, but more importantly I hope that you can find the joys of nothing in your own life!

*today's joy of nothing*
-waking up early without an alarm
-the grey clouds
-the dirty dishes in the sink because they remind me that dinner was delicious



  1. I love this - and I could probably learn a lesson or two from you! I have a really hard time finding the joy in nothing - I suffer from a a large does of fear of missing out. Sometimes I think I drive my husband crazy because I plan stuff back to back with no down time... I'll tell him I'm taking lessons from your blog now and he'll be pleased. :D

    1. :) Thank you! I'm so glad that you were able to get something from it! I hope that you are able to find the joys in nothing this month!!! <3

  2. Yes, yes, yes. I am constantly encouraged by your Joy of Nothing posts because they remind me just how much beauty, love, and joy there can be found in the everyday. It's a reminder for me to find them in my own life when I read your blog! Thank you for linking up and for lighting up the blog world, too!

  3. Aubrey, I'm so glad I ran across your blog and I'm happy you came back to blogging! There's no time and no reason to spend life with a frown. Thank you for the reminder to embrace joy.
