Hello and Welcome!

If you’re like me, you’ll find that there are so many inspiring things to love in life. And I love and am inspired by many, many of them.  The common thread that I have discovered between all these things is that I love to savour them slowly.

Whether it is travelling slower, stopping to take in the beauty of a garden or sipping a glass of wine, each moment I believe must be relished and celebrated for what it reveals to us. For there lays the opportunity to love, learn and grow.

So here I will share with you the inspiring stories behind some of the places I visit, the joy we find in ordinary moments, and the beauty of life with its magic and its potholes.  Hopefully more magic than potholes.

If you are the kind of person who finds joy in old books and ethereal sunsets, in the shape of a flower’s petals and how the sun glints off resting waves, in clouds that drift by an airplane’s window and warm tea sipped from vintage teacups, in the scent of cut grass and the slow unhurried exploration of a new place on our planet, then this blog is for you.

You may know that Alegria means joy and happiness.

Join me on this slow intentional journey towards joy.  It is about the journey AND the destination.

See the Beauty. Feel the Joy
