(Joyce) #1






While editing our May issue,
we had no idea just how
much Rosie Green’s Little Hits Of
Happiness would resonate.
But as we all retreated into
our homes, Rosie’s commitment
to ‘shrink my pleasures down to
the here and now, to what
is right in front of me’ – like
clean washed hair and freshly
cut grass – inspired many of
you to email us with your own
mini moments of joy. We loved
reading them, so we asked
more of you on Instagram
to share yours, too.
Here are some of your
wonderful responses...
