About Me & Contact

Welcome to Everyday Delights

Every day, I try to find something extraordinary or special in the world around me. It’s about being present in the now. It’s about looking for the details in the colours, light, sounds, aromas, trying to see things from a fresh or different perspective. About celebrating and enjoying the routines of every day.

This blog is a place where I record what I notice. Initially, I started this as part of my 2015 100 Happy Days challenge, where I took a photo and wrote a related blog post, every day for 100 days. After that challenge finished, I decided to continue.

Many of my posts are photography related, as I am doing an ongoing 365 photography project (now in my 5th year). Some are musings on what life throws at me, and others are just about noticing the everyday delights in the world around me. Please join me in my search and in celebrating Everyday Delights. 

Who am I?

I am a passionate, holistic photographer and enthusiastic blogger, looking for the many delights in the everyday mundane. I live in a small town in the Eastern Cape, South Africa and I have been taking photos since 1997 when I bought my first film SLR.

Happiness Resolutions

Happiness resolutions

When I started this blog, I set myself some “Happiness Resolutions” (an idea I got from reading Gretchen Rubin). I review them every year and I use them as my guides in looking for Everyday Delights. They often appear as prompts in my blog posts, so look out for them.


Latest additions to the site

Have a look at my new Inspirations page! Starting off with books that inspire me in my writing. More will be added as time goes by.

    I’ve been scrolling through your site and feel rather overwhelmed by all you seem to do. As a comparatively new blogger I feel my contributions to the blogging world are quite limited and going through your site fills me with a desire to do better. But – where to start!
    Don’t get me wrong. You inspire me and I recognise that I need to try to make the time to catch up and visit sites like yours more often.
    Thank you for being inspirational. Blessings , Lois

    Hey Lois, thanks for touching base with me. Please don’t feel overwhelmed, these things happen gradually and have their own way of panning out.
    I love to observe life and to write about it. I keep a journal and it provides me with plenty of material.
    But I started out slowly too. You will find your feet in time.
    Keep observing YOUR life and write about it if you want. And keep posting. Its your blog and it will pan out the way is meant to for you.
    I shall visit your blog shortly!
