This Joyful Moment | 001

Hello friends, and welcome once again to my new little place I call home! I honestly can't thank you enough for the sweet words about this new site - it makes my heart oh-so happy. It's been in the works for a little while now, so it's super exciting to see it go live and to be able to share it with you. Gathered Cheer is all about finding joy in the everyday, and I'm hoping that the posts I'm planning to share over the coming months will bring inspiration and cheer.

One new blog feature I'm super happy to launch is #thisjoyfulmoment. This is a weekly instagram project that I'm co-hosting with the lovely Laura from We Made This Home. Laura is one of sweetest people I know, and I was so delighted when she agreed to join forces for this happy project. We both agree that while life has its fair share of painful and difficult moments, that it's good to celebrate the happier times. For me, the past few years have been marked with loss and sadness on the road to having a family, but capturing and celebrating the sweeter moments has brought much hope and relief. 

And so, welcome to #thisjoyfulmoment. Each Sunday Laura and I will be sharing our own reflections over on instagram (Laura is here and I'm here), and we'd be so delighted if you joined us. While there won't be a weekly winner as such, I'll be sharing a few that caught our eye on here each week. 

Here are just a few of the gorgeous moments which filled the feed last Sunday -

Thank you so much to everyone who shared their precious moments - it filled my Sunday with so many smiles! You can see the whole feed here. See you on Instagram next Sunday!
