twelve months ago, as the world was shutting down around us, i made a conscious decision to look for more magic in my days. when the days were tricky, i chose gratitude and finding joy to cope with the uncertainty around us. sometimes that meant noticing little glimmers of goodness that were already there, and on days when we couldn’t find any, it meant making magic ourselves.
one of the activities that we did to create some magic during those initial weeks at home was painting on our windows. i’m happy to report that one year later, our lovely little rainbow still happily welcomes every single visitor to our front porch.
if you’d like to create your own, all you need is: some acrylic paint in the colours of your choice, dish soap, a paintbrush, a piece of paper and some painter’s tape.

whether it’s the way the sun shines in through your window, finding the perfect heart shaped rock on a walk, or a rainbow painted on your front window, i hope you find some magic in your days this week.
