Welcome to my blog, SCRIBBLING TO (IN)SANITY! First time here? I'm a romance writer who wants to believe most problems can be solved over coffee, a mixed drink or by anything covered in chocolate. I'm a believer in second chances and that it's always the right time to fall in love. As the saying goes, you're a guest in my house only once...then you're family. So I invite you to join the fun! I love comments but it's okay to lurk too - just know I'm glad you've found me and I hope you visit me again soon!

52 Ways to Joy - Feet in the...

Today it's up to you to fill in the blank. Toes in the...what? In the fresh cut grass? In the sand at the beach? In the pool?

As the summer season kicks off it's easy to get caught up in the big things. The kids have their finals, the nicer days will be calling to us through the office windows - it's easy to get stressed wishing we could enjoy the lazy summer days like when we were kids.

Today I propose that one of the quickest ways to bring just a few moments of joy to your life this summer is to everyday stick your toes somewhere that makes you happy.

Walk barefoot through the yard, dangle them in a pool, prop them up on a coffee table after a long day at work.

Paint your toenails something bright and fun, soak your feet and give them a nice massage - don't you owe it to the one of the hardest working parts of your body to give those toes (and heels) a little TLC?

Sometimes a little bit of joy has to start from the ground up!

This week, take a few minutes for yourself and put your toes in something that brings a smile to your face - because you really do deserve it!

As always, I wish you joy as you travel through life!


  1. I love the feeling of my toes in wet sand. Walking along the shore is the best. It's a great feeling and it exfoliates!

  2. Dangling in a pool is my favorite. I could do it for hours. :) Fun song, too!

  3. I'm sooo note a beach girl - but walking in the sand is a cool feeling. I think my toes in the cool, fresh cut grass is high on my list. :)

  4. I love pampering my feet. Make me feel so good.

  5. Wet sand and cushy, thick grass are soooo nice!
