Anyone who's been reading the blog for long enough remembers my weekly series "Five Things," which I discontinued two years ago after it became clear that Instagram already provided such an easy platform for sharing my favorite photos that it was redundant. But over the past few weeks, and inspired in part by Jess' "Joy Triggers" post, I've challenged myself to find beauty in the everyday. I'll be sharing more of my specific Joy Triggers soon, but in the meantime, I've noticed that my camera roll is beginning to resemble a collection of home-oriented Five Things-like images. You may recognize a few of these photos, but most are images I've kept to myself until recently realizing I had enough that I wanted to share them here. I hope they inspire you to seek out the moments of sunlight, vases of flowers, and collections of trinkets that inspire you in your own home:
