About Daily Joy

Inner peace is my goal. I am humbled by the possibility of helping others experience joy, through the stillness of yoga, a beautifully designed home, the art of fashion, or words on a page. Here I will share thoughts, words, images, concepts, products, and events that bring joy into my life, in the hopes of adding joy to yours.
